New Tool for Avoiding Construction Overruns Dallas-based three: living architecture is working to solve a persistent

problem for senior living communities in development—cost overruns. Most projects now starting construction are based on budgets formulated

two or more years ago, using resource metrics that were accurate at the time, explains Rocky Berg, three: living principal and senior living design lead. Unforeseen rising labor and material costs cause major budget shortfalls that can run into millions of dollars, presenting a serious financial risk to investors, owners, and even pre-sale residents. In three: living’s home state of Texas, proj- ect costs can rise by 25 percent, significantly higher than the national average of 10-14 percent. As a solution, Berg advocates a “three-way dialogue” among client, architect, and builder, coupled with 3-D modeling technology. 3-D systems, such as one named Revit, build a digital model of the project instead of just 2-D sketches. As a result, each of the project stakeholders can review features such as walls, roofs, floors, windows, and doors as multi-dimensional entities. Client, architect, and builder can better determine actual costs. The construction team becomes engaged early in the planning stage, assigning costs in real time as the designs are being developed. The design team and client are informed sooner and ben- efit from realistic expectations about cost before committing to a given design direction. The three-way group can also develop “what if” scenarios, based on potential cost environments at key decision points.
