Importance of Estimation in Construction Work


Construction Management Cost Estimation

Budgeting and cost-control can and often do determine the fate of construction projects at all levels. Quite simply, if financial resources run dry at the worst possible time, the entire project could be rendered unviable. Or at best, cost considerably more than expected and eat into the potential profits of the developer. Success in construction is all about the proactive and efficient use of capital in a planned, controlled and monitored manner. Without which, the practical construction of projects of all sizes simply cannot go ahead. To succeed in construction management, little matters more than the capacity to estimate and budget accurately and efficiently.
