One of the biggest risks to a company in a low-margin construction economy is executing a project differently than how it was estimated (and vice versa). The best way to maintain profitability is to create field-friendly budgets, to aggressively track and manage direct costs, and to incorporate actual performance into future estimates.

Upon completion, attendees should be able to:

  • Incorporate field input into estimates
  • Determine the healthy differences between an estimate and a budget
  • Recognize why and how actual job costs should be tracked
  • Utilize job-cost information to improve estimating accuracy
