Big Data: How to Leverage Estimating’s Data Explosion

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Jul 11, 2017 10:42:00 AM

Construction estimating is on the verge of a data explosion. As virtual design and construction methods increase in use, preconstruction teams are dealing with tens to hundreds of estimate iterations depending on a project’s size. Estimators need to find an effective way to organize, manage, and control that information. And they need to leverage it to make better decisions and forecasts.

Even more traditional estimating teams are dealing with an excessive number of project changes that require quick feedback on the cost impact of each design modification. With local, network, and cloud data storage now readily available and cost effective, there’s no longer any reason not to capture data that can help provide faster, more reliable cost feedback.

5 Construction Estimating Trends to Watch

Posted by Walter Davis on Jun 27, 2017 10:45:00 AM


I recently was on the road for four weeks exhibiting at and attending some of the most informative construction technology conferences today: BuiltWorlds in Chicago, Advancing Building Estimation in Houston, and ENR FutureTech in San Francisco. These conferences attract some of the best and brightest minds in the construction industry.

Nick Papadopolous, CEO of estimating and benchmarking technology consultant Eos Group, joined me at several of the events. For this blog post, I sat down with Nick to discuss our observations from the conferences and what we see as the latest estimating trends. Here is an overview of our conversation:

When Estimating Worlds Collide… In a Good Way

Posted by Tony Colburn on Apr 25, 2017 11:17:47 AM

The owner develops an estimate. The engineer develops an estimate. While both are right, they’re rarely close and often worlds apart.

They Never Forget the First Number

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Apr 4, 2017 11:17:00 AM

Let’s face it. We are all biased. Bias stems from our past and our current environment. It influences our future. Bias shapes the way we feel, the way we think, and our behavior. It drives our decision-making process more than we care to admit.

Project History Cheat Sheet

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Jan 17, 2017 11:49:00 AM

Everyone has individual cheat sheets. They’re usually  Microsoft Excel workbooks that  are updated  every so often . Estimators create cheat sheets because either  there isn’t  a central database,  or there isn’t  one that they trust . In this case, I’m  referring to a cheat sheet of historical project costs.
