Development of a Two-step Neural Network-based Model to Predict Construction Cost Contingency


An owner’s cost contingency is one of the most important cost elements within a base estimate to account for unpredictable risks and changes in the delivery of construction projects. The accurate estimation of an optimal contingency is critical for the financial success of a project and for ensuring the optimal use of an owner’s funds. Existing methods for… (More)
