Completion Date: Ongoing
Keville Enterprises Inc. is providing cost estimating and scheduling analysis services for The Massachusetts Division of Capitol Asset Management (DCAM). Keville performs these services for DCAM on various state and county construction projects throughout the Commonwealth. Under this on-call task order contract, Keville provides independent cost analysis of new projects throughout the development phase and provides independent cost analysis for Proposed Design Modifications and Change Orders on active construction projects. Keville also provided construction inspection services on DCAM’s J. Michael Ruane Judicial Center in Salem, MA.
Keville’s specific responsibilities include defining project scope; performing detailed quantity take-off’s and developing detailed work breakdown structures (WBS) for each project. This methodology allows Keville to develop estimates for DCAM which are based on the way that a reasonable contractor would actually build the work. Using this approach allows us to produce estimates that provide DCAM with a built-in confidence level that the work can actually be built for the estimated price. This approach also facilitates the development of the construction schedule, providing DCAM with additional service value.
