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.
DeKalb Public Library
CCS International’s work as the Owner’s Representative on the DeKalb Public Library project began with initial project definition, development, phasing and gaining approval from the DeKalb City Council, the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the State Library of Illinois. As our Client’s advisors, we add value with critical support, relative project phasing and scheduling, risk identification, contract negotiations, and procurement. This project was completed on January 19, 2016 under budget and on time. CCS’ thoroughness, high standards and integrity were significant factors in giving DeKalb a library facility that is a “jewel in the crown” for the DeKalb community.
