Cost Estimating and Management

Among the five common project discriminators – time, cost, quality, performance and scope – most clients concentrate their efforts on determining and controlling project costs.

Ralli Consulting recognizes the importance of having accurate cost estimates before construction begins. Accurate estimates are needed for budgeting, to verify or modify design decisions at the various stages of the project development and to analyze the accuracy and fairness of contractor bids.

Our team of estimators and consultants have the credentials and experience to provide accurate and timely estimates.

Ralli Consulting can provide estimates at the various stages of project cycle, utilizing cost codes for all our estimate items. This allows us to quickly sort and summarize the cost information according to client/project need. Our estimates will utilize the latest industry wage data form the appropriate project labor designation type (open shop, union, prevailing wage) and with our own material and labor productivity costs database.
