This Wednesday, New Orleans-based Woodward Design+Build, Co-Developer of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans, is offering the opportunity for subcontractors to view schematic designs and provide cost opinions for the redevelopment of the World Trade Center. A "training” session will be provided on what is expected by the estimating team and suggestions on how to prepare a cost opinion.
What is a cost opinion?
A cost opinion is an estimate of what the final cost will be based on schematic designs. Subcontractors are invited to a two-hour interactive session with Rick Dupont P.E., Woodward’s Director of Research & New Initiatives, to learn how to provide cost opinions based on schematic designs. Dupont has 36 years of construction experience and over 22 years as Manager of Estimating.
This cost opinion event is a good opportunity for subcontractors to learn more about the Four Seasons project and meet the developers.
