The first step in successfully managing a project's costs is to develop a budget that realistically reflects the costs required to execute the project. This Construction Institute workshop will cover how to create master budget projects that identify all hard and soft costs to ensure your project cost reflects a complete number.

During the fall of 2017, each CI Project Management workshop will consist of online modules with assessments, as well as an in-person group session. 


  • Learn how to control project costs to ensure you meet the budget.
  • Learn what are the right contingencies to carry from initiation through planning & design.
  • Discuss the tools needed to develop reliable cost estimates working upward from the project's work activities.
  • Use the schedule as a management tool.
  • Discuss costs for construction, consulting fees, operations, move management, contingency allowances.


  • This workshop will consist of online modules with assessments and one in-person session.

  • Participants should plan to spend approximately1-2 hours to complete the online training prior to the in-person session.  

  • Online training opens up on November 8, 2017.  Online training needs to be completed by November 28, 2017.

  • In-person session to take place on November 29, 2017 in Hartford - start time 8:30 A.M. Session length will be 2-3 hours.
