National Nuclear Security Administration – Market Analysis
Being in tune with today’s construction climate as well as being able to forecast the future is important to accuracy in budgeting projects, escalation factors, and determining availability of labor and materials in a given area. CRAWFORD has performed Market Analyses in order to ensure that a project’s procurement methods are feasible in terms of scope, budget, as well as contracting strategy.
Our in-house research team is experienced at interviewing construction industry decision makers: architects, engineers, project managers, estimators, large & small contractors, sub-contractors, distributors, wholesalers and equipment suppliers. Our methods do not rely solely on published indices and forecasts, however, we perform detailed market surveys for the specific geographic area that the project is planned to be built. This is a good resource for owners to refer to as a gauge for their project.
When the construction economics of a project are fully understood it provides our clients less risk associated with funding future programs. Securing adequate and proper funding to meet agency operations is vital to our client’s mission. CRAWFORD has a proven track record understanding the unique construction practices to ensure appropriated funds are used on time in the specified period of availability, for the purpose established by Congress.
