HCI was assigned as the Construction Management and Cost Manager for this project. At the onset of the project the client requested HCI to develop an independent estimate at the Test Fit stage of the project. HCI’s estimating and engineering resources was brought into the project to team to perform the estimate due to the early stage of the design and the requested level of detail required or this effort. The majority of cost resides in MEP and Technology Systems and as such HCI performed an in-depth estimate and concept engineering on these systems.
