Program:  Cost Estimating for Unique Projects

Our October section meeting will take our membership to the front lines of innovative construction.  As guests of Jay Dougherty, Adjunct Professor at Seminole State College (an active member of our North Florida AACE Section), we will join his evening class in Construction Cost Estimating for a lesson entitled, “Cost Estimating for Unique Projects.”  The content of this technical presentation will range from construction in our local theme parks all the way to a current project in Antarctica.

Students from Seminole State will be there to attend class, giving us a wonderful opportunity to introduce them to the services, vision, mission, operations and certification opportunities provided by AACE International.  You may even encounter a potential new employee for your own company!

Come experience an evening dedicated to cost estimating challenges.  Introduce students to an expanded vision of project controls.  Represent your local section.  Be prepared to discuss your own projects and share from your valuable experience.  Invest in the future of cost engineering!
