Program VerificationProgram verification, a process that uses Parametric Cost Model™* to continually predict current and future costs as the facility progresses, can help owners set a realistic and, more importantly, real-time Construction Cost Limitation (CCL), the maximum amount that will be paid for a construction project as contracted between the owner and architect. When conducted at the outset of project definition, a program verification can help ensure that the project remains within the CCL with few or no necessary adjustments to project scope.
Washington Monument Visitor Screening Facility
CCS International is proud to be part of the Beyer Blinder Belle Architects and Planning team, responsible for enhancements to the Washington Monument, dedicated in 1885 to our first American President. At the time, the Monument was the tallest structure in the world outshining The Cologne Cathedral in Germany and later the Eiffel Tower in France. A true marvel, as it experienced and weathered some damage from a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in 2011, the Monument’s marble base is held together by gravity and friction alone, with no mortar to aid in this stability. Today’s improvements will allow visitors to line up indoors, with the addition of a new glass fronted Visitors Screening Center. Not only will this add to the Monuments security, but also in providing a better experience for visitors from across the globe.
