Whether your project is big or small, simple or complex, one of the first, and most important, questions associated with any construction project is:
"How Much is this Going to Cost?"
If you're a developer, facility manager, commercial property owner, homeowner, church/school or contractor you will want to avoid wasting time and money on any proposed development or remodeling project.
The very first thing that you need to develop for any successful project is a budget to control your costs. It is not difficult for most people to understand the importance of having a good budget at the beginning of a project. What is often difficult is determining how to get an accurate initial budget without spending a fortune doing so!
It is important to understand that budgeting is not a one time task. Rather, it is an ongoing process throughout the life of a project. Most projects end up developing several budgets. The initial budget is probably the most important and difficult to create for the following reasons:
These reasons create a fundamental problem, it is sort of a "chicken or the egg" thing. Most people want an accurate initial budget without spending a lot of time and money. They don't want to waste money on design fees if they cannot ultimately afford the project. But how can you prepare an accurate budget without detailed plans? You can see the dilemma!
