PRESENTATION: GC/CM Cost Estimate Reconciliation
As General Contractor / Construction Manager (GC/CM) becomes more popular, it is essential for Project Control practitioners to identify and address challenges associated with this contract delivery method. This presentation focuses on the cost estimating aspect of Project Control. We will discuss issues that can, and will most likely occur, and how to overcome them.
