Construction cost is probably one of the largest single components of capital cost investment in a project development, apart from land cost.  Managing and controlling construction cost within budget is always set as one of the top of Clients’ project objectives.  Cost Planning would involve certain techniques and approaches that would ultimately provide best value for money in meeting this objective.  In this talk, the speaker will share with you various techniques and approaches in cost planning including different types of estimates at different stages of a project, and how they can bring best value to the design.  The talk will also include practical examples of value engineering solutions in some previous projects.
