Back for 2017: Improving the Accuracy of Conceptual & Model-Based Cost Estimation

Preconstruction is facing massive disruption from model-based quantity take-off, new tools to leverage historical data, skills shortage, lean principles, evolving client expectations and more.

When it comes to processes as critical to your business as cost estimating and bid management, you need to continuously benchmark against the industry and find new ways to innovate.

Advancing Building Estimation 2017 follows the widely attended Estimation Technology forum in San Francisco last May. This year a much larger venue will enable a more interactive experience and the addition of break-out rooms to offer unprecedented detail and insight.

With an expected audience of over 350 senior preconstruction, estimating and VDC professionals, this is the hub for reviewing and improving your estimation strategy in 2017.
