Construction Cost Escalation – the Impact of Technology Changes

At the October meeting of the Victorian branch of the ACES, member Alan Rae will give a presentation on the construction of the Eildon Dam. This was a landmark project in its day fifty years ago. Alan has studied the historical reports to understand the scope, construction methodologies and costs used and created a new cost plan based on building the dam today, using today’s technologies. This is unique opportunity to learn how construction technologies have changed and the dramatic impact these changes can have on methodologies and costs.
