Engineering Degree Program in China - Engineering Cost

1. Introduction

Engineering Cost is the construction price of the project. Project cost refers to the total cost of a project construction; the core content includes the investment estimate, design estimates, revised estimates, construction drawing budget, engineering settlement, project completion settlement and so on. The three elements of engineering valuation are the quantity, price, and fee. Project cost in the general sense covers the construction cost, highway engineering cost, waterway engineering cost, railway engineering cost, water conservancy project cost, cost of power engineering, communication engineering cost, aerospace engineering cost etc. The main task of the project cost is to calculate the direct costs included in the engineering (labor, materials and equipment, construction machinery use), enterprise management fees, measure fees, charges, profits and taxes according to the drawings, quota and listed specifications.

2. Engineering Cost Consultation

Engineering cost consultation refers to accepting the entrustment of the general public, undertaking the whole process of construction projects, the dynamic cost management, including feasibility study, investment estimation, economic evaluation of the project, the project estimate and budget, project settlement, project completion settlement, project bid and bidding preparation and audit of the project cost control, and provide the relevant project cost information and other services.

According to the different majors involved, engineering cost consulting industry can be divided into housing construction engineering cost consulting, municipal construction engineering cost consulting, highway construction engineering cost consulting, railway construction engineering cost consulting, and city traffic construction engineering cost consulting. According to the different stages of engineering construction, engineering construction consulting can be divided into the consulting of the early decision-making, the implementation stage advisory, consulting of the settlement audit phase, project cost consulting of the whole process, economic disputes identification of construction cost and arbitration consultation.
