Research objective

Research Objective

Develop inclusive right-of-way cost estimation and cost estimation management procedures based on literature and current practice, that integrates with the cost estimate steps documented in

NCHRP Report 574


Framework

Framework

  • Phase I  Implications

  • Project development phases

  • General project cost estimation & estimate management steps

  • Cost estimating & cost management flowcharts

  • Tool appendix approach


Framework1

Framework

  • Impact of Phase I on Phase II

  • Focus on creating a ROW Cost Estimating & Cost Management Procedures Guide – a “how to”

  • Create more detailed processes for cost estimating & cost management for ROW to support procedure guide


Framework2

Framework

  • Impact of Phase I on Phase II

  • Use some Phase I tools but created additional tools focused on ROW using same format and structure as in the

    NCHRP Report 574


Data collection

Data Collection

1. Literature review

2. On-site interviews

 Interview Protocol

Six areas of interest that focused on different aspects of the cost estimation & estimate management process


Data collection1

Data Collection

 Interview Process

Who?

SHAs and other organizations that acquire ROW

Central Office and Region/District perspectives

How?

Ask questions relative to project development phase


Data collection2

Data Collection

Documents collected

  • ROW manuals

  • Unique tools used in practice (i.e. cost estimating systems, estimate documents, spreadsheets)

    Early flowchart feedback


Data analysis

Data Analysis

  • Review of Practices

  • Critical issues to ROW cost estimation

  • Successful practices and tools


Data analysis1

Data Analysis

  • Flowchart technique

  • Data subdivided into four categories:

  • Inputs (primary and secondary)

  • Process steps

  • Outputs

  • Decisions and loops(cycles within the process)


Limitations

Limitations

  • Small sample size

  • Differences between agencies:

  • Large verses small

  • Organizational make-up ― centralized verses decentralized

  • Project development phases

  • Terminology and acronyms


Results

Results

Problem Areas

  • Damages

  • Condemnations

  • Appreciation & market conditions

  • Risk analysis & contingency

  • Early scope definition

  • Estimating tools

  • Estimator experience & knowledge


Right of way issues

Right of Way Issues

  • Current practices lack structure and organization.

  • Communication between ROW personnel and project development team needs to improve.

  • The ROW estimation is highly dependent on scope definition.


Right of way issues1

Right of Way Issues

  • ROW planning estimates typically not prepared by ROW staff.

  • SHAs do not utilize risk analysis and the application of contingency to all estimates.

  • Cost estimation management and cost control are underutilized.

Risk analysis

Risk Analysis

Analysis of Risk and Uncertainty

Analysis of uncertainty involves quantifying identified risks. Risk analysis is used to prioritize identified risks for mitigation, monitoring, and control purposes. Risk analysis can be extremely helpful for understanding project uncertainty and setting appropriate contingencies.


Risk analysis1

Risk Analysis

What Is It?

In the context of cost estimation, this tool quantifies project risk and uncertainty to provide a better understanding of contingency and the ultimate project cost.


Risk analysis2

Risk Analysis

Why?

Highway project delivery, particularly the estimation of right-of-way cost, is a complex task heavy with uncertainty.

What Does It Do?

This tool quantifies the effect of potential risks in terms of their consequences to cost and schedule.


Risk analysis3

Risk Analysis

When?

Risk analysis can be used throughout the project development process.

Examples

Caltrans has documented a qualitative risk analysis procedure: Project Risk Management Handbook: Threats and Opportunities,May 2007


Risk analysis4

Risk Analysis

Tips

Conduct the risk analysis early in the project development process.

Guide conclusions

Guide Conclusions

Structured Approach

Collaborative Atmosphere

Key Principles

  • Create an environment for success

  • Create procedures for establishing a Baseline ROW Cost Estimate


Guide conclusions1

Guide Conclusions

Key Principles

  • Create processes to identify risk and for setting contingency

  • Require ROW reviews

  • Create ROW cost control mechanisms

  • Support good communication practices


Magic bullets

Magic Bullets

Stick to the process ―a process that:

  • Considers risk – identify and mitigate

  • Requires reviews and approvals

  • Involves updating the estimate when new or more detailed information is available.


Communicate estimate consistency and accuracy to the project team and management
