Mounting pressure on construction costs will impact all research facility projects on the drawing boards and in the pipeline. Attend this session to get better pricing and more accurate budget figures. James Vermeulen and Blair Tennant deliver construction cost forecasts based on recent Congressional spending cuts, commodity prices, and cost data from more than 100 projects. Using analyses of equities, GDP, and construction labor markets, they illustrate what to expect for construction pricing on a regional basis for the next two years. They also demonstrate the development of bid and purchasing strategies that lock in costs and reduce risk.
