Scope of Services

Retained to review and evaluate the estimate for the Euclid Corridor Improvement Project in Cleveland, Ohio designed by Dames & Moore Group and estimated by O'Brien Kreitzberg, Inc. that incorporated new construction and modifications to existing facilities of Euclid Avenue as well as the relocation or reconstruction of six Red Line Stations.

After a thorough review of the plans and narrative provided for the project, the estimate was evaluated as to its completeness of scope and the reasonableness in pricing. Pricing was compared to projects of similar size and function and assumptions made based on industry standards. The estimate was broken down into the various segments of construction and our analysis has been conducted in the same manner.

The elements reviewed and evaluated within the project were:
o Euclid Avenue Busway
