Cost Management

The ripple effect of accurately knowing what a project will cost, affects everything.

Early and accurate project costs, even before drawings or concepts, affect every decision. As an architect, you know it’s important to get an idea of what a project will cost as early as possible. The experts at CCS International, Inc. can help you establish accurate construction cost parameters and total capital project budgets in the early stages of a project even before drawings or concepts. Objectively managing building costs and project outcomes since 1979, we’ve got your back – taking on your values and moving you forward with solid, reliable solutions.
