Rather than developing an estimate on an established design, the project team develops a design that fits within the established budget.
Costs are organized and tracked in buckets led by cluster groups. Group leaders discuss the details of what is important on a project and where tradeoffs can occur amongst the team to maintain the overall project budget.
Using tools that show real-time data provides a source of truth during preconstruction, throughout construction and months or years beyond construction. The TVD process and tools result in a collection of the best cost decisions and insight that can be used as a starting point for subsequent projects.
