Cost Estimating involves developing an assessment of the likely quantitative result-how much will it cost the performing organization to provide the product or service involved. Pricing is a business decision-how much will the performing organization charge for the product or service. Using the actual cost of a previous, similar project as the basis for.

Low cost housing can be achieved by the use of efficient planning and project management, locally available materials, economical construction technologies and use of alternate construction. project. The project planning is providing the cost structure of the work. It is useful for the deciding the cost of project or the budget of project and the activity of element construction work as well as the duration of project work. 2) Cost control: Cost control is the process of reducing the project budget by using various techniques and.

Low Cost Housing is a new concept which deals with effective budgeting and following of techniques which help in reducing the cost construction through the use of locally available materials along with improved skills and technology without sacrificing the strength, performance and life of the is huge misconception that low cost housing is suitable for only sub standard works.

Housing is a key component of the U.S. economy. Inhousing comprised more than one-third of the nation’s tangible assets, and, in the form of home building and remodeling, housing consumption and related spending represented more than 21 percent of the U.S.

The variables determining the overall cost are, broadly: 1. Location 2. Building materials and labour. Civil Engineering vs.

Urban Planning. Civil engineers and urban and regional planners both work in fields related to the planning and construction of buildings, roads and other facilities.

While civil engineers focus on the projects themselves, urban and regional planners emphasize how the projects. FW 4.

As such, civil engineering projects place special importance on adequate risk identification, and contingency reserves for these projects tend to be generous. It is also important to undertake project planning in a way that minimizes the likelihood of future scope changes, since these can easily cause cost overruns.

Strategic planning: this involves the high-level selection of the project objectives 2. Operational planning: this involves the detailed planning required to meet the strategic objectives 3. Scheduling: this puts the detailed operational plan on a time scale set by the strategic objectives.

Strategic planning. This is done by the owner’s corporate planners. Civil Engineering projects (Public Works) cost a lot. The big scale of them is a part of what makes the career fun. You get to deal with big budgets, design huge stuff, watch the dirt move, see it built, and hopefully see it used.

The effort (budget/cost) of taking a project from planning through the scoping and design phases of project development. Planning and scoping typically have separate budgets but are encompassed under Design or Preliminary Engineering (PE).

The terms “Design” or “Design Phase” are sometimes used interchangeably with PE. Planning plays a vital role in supporting the Corps of Engineers Civil Works water resources development mission. Planning is a structured, rational approach to solving problems.

It is also a creative process requiring experience, analysis, intuition and inspiration. Planners help decision-makers.Role of a Planning Engineer: A role of a Planning Engineer is to mainly support the Project Manager and Project team with information to execute the project in time and within the budget allocated.

This information is used by Project Managers in t.affordable housing and sustainable communities might be built, redeveloped and maintained.

As a prelude, it is useful to draw a link between housing planning and supply chain management, the theme of the Frontiers of Engineering session in which this paper appears.
