    Session Information:

    The Project Cost Estimating System (PCES) and AASHTOWare Project Preconstruction (formerly Trnsport) play an indispensable role in establishing project budgets, bid evaluation, and making award decisions. This session will provide insight into cost estimating processes, systems, and tools employed by VDOT from project development through project award. Discussion includes parametric and detailed cost estimating methodology during project scoping, preliminary design, final design, advertisement, and award phases. Project Managers and Estimators throughout the Commonwealth use PCES and Preconstruction systems to develop market value estimates for delivery of the Commonwealth’s Six Year Improvement Program (SYIP) and to substantiate expenditure of public dollars.
