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.
