Construction Cost Estimating and GIS
Track: Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
Authors: Wendy Peloquin, Alan Lee
Opelika Utilities is using the ArcGIS platform to perform quick construction cost estimates for their grant-funded capital improvement projects in 2018. Opelika is also using Cost Map to validate construction cost estimates pre and post construction, perform “what-if” scenarios, and forecast future year’s CIPs that leverages RSMeans data (available in Esri’s ArcGIS platform through GISinc’s Cost Map) to forecast 3-year construction cost information.
