Transforming Historical Project Data Into Useful Information

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Sep 14, 2016 11:32:00 AM

We’re often asked  to help prospects make the business case for investing in a project history system to capture historical cost data. For those of us with religion, the reasons  seem obvious. Others, however, need to be convinced.

This year’s conference was held at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto, Canada. Once again, the AACEI staff put on a great conference in a great venue in a great city. For those that haven’t spent time in Toronto (especially in the summer), I highly recommend you find some time to enjoy the city.

This February our partner, Cost Engineering Consultancy, toured Australia giving a series of workshops discussing Total Cost Management (TCM).

These half-day workshops covered the best practices for preparing quality estimates, executing cost control, and managing the costs of the project, while keeping within the budget, schedule, and desired quality.

Thoughts from the 2016 Western Winter Workshop

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Mar 15, 2016 8:30:00 AM

I had the pleasure of attending the 2016 Western Winter Workshop in Indian Wells, CA earlier this month. This year’s event was presented jointly by the AACEI San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California sections. It was my first event after many, many attempts to participate in prior workshops. Naturally, something always got in the way—work, family, vacations, etc.—but not this time.

Cleopatra–Regression Analysis

Posted by Tony Colburn on Jul 21, 2015 10:52:22 AM

I want to follow up on Nick's blog post. This year's AACEI conference was a great success for both the AACEI and Eos Group. The most interesting aspect of the conference was the opportunity to connect with the community of cost estimators and engineers under one roof. We were also pleased with our new relationship with Cost Engineering Consultancy and Eos Group's North American representation of their Cleopatra Enterprise solutions.

AACE International Conference Recap

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Jul 8, 2015 11:23:00 AM

I just returned from another trip to Las Vegas (the fourth one in the last nine months) to attend the annual AACEI conference. This is the conference to attend if you're interested in cost engineering and total cost management. Attendance was high with close to 800 participants. While it's not unusual to meet clients and prospects focused on buildings and facilities, the conference is best suited to the non-building sector: energy, process, infrastructure, etc.
