As a project evolves through the normal design process, additional evaluations of cost (cost checks) are made. These cost estimates are done as precisely as possible and include appropriate contingencies for unknown items. These “concept estimates” help to keep the project design within budget. Once the design is complete, the project is bid by building contractors utilizing a variety of estimating methods. A final Pre-tender estimate is normally prepared as a check for the owner to ascertain the right financing is available to implement construction, and as a measure to gauge actual costs against relative market prices.
