Any facilities director or CFO who has been involved in a construction project has concerns about cost overruns and budget pressures.  When performed independently, the disconnect between design and construction can often lead to schedule delays and change-orders.  Fortunately, we have seen an increasing trend of owners, facilities professionals and public agencies getting specialized expertise involved early in the scope and RFP (Request for Proposal) development process, which helps define the scope appropriately, and in doing so, reduce the potential for cost overruns.
