Bring Proven Innovation to Estimating and Cost Management

Learn how the U.S.’s most forward-thinking construction companies are using “Active Estimating and integrated Cost Management” (AEiCM) —an innovative approach to cost management in preconstruction and during construction—to deliver projects on time and on budget with an astonishing degree of predictability.

Revolutionize Your Approach to Cost Management

Active Estimating integrates the latest construction management approach—Lean Construction, Target Value Delivery and technology-cloud computing, Building Information Modeling, machine learning and artificial intelligence—into cost management, giving you the ability to mitigate cost overruns, manage delays and minimize uncertainty.

Create Differentiators

Active Estimating is not about just teaching you a process – you’re learning how to be a leader in the construction industry. It gives you the knowledge, confidence and capability to:

  • Conduct highly collaborative interactions with the owner and design team that establish a shared vision for the project and cost certainty
  • Apply innovative, early-design phase strategic estimating concepts that reflect the voice of the customer
  • Present an estimate and manage the full-cycle process of cost
  • Establish your cost management strategy, draft persuasive summaries and apply format methodologies
  • Maintain cost management at all phases of your projects, including validation, design, construction and operation
