Abstract:
Project overheads cover the site cost of administrating a project as a whole, rather than a particular work section. Estimation of these items is one of the routine tasks of all parties including the contractors and project owners. Nevertheless, our understanding of this subject mainly lies on the theoretical level due to the limited empirical study in the past. More importantly, estimation of project overheads demands a lot of expertise but still exhibits a high risk of inaccuracy. Therefore, the aims of this research study are to explore the estimation and expenses of project overheads in practice and to devise an efficient model for project overheads estimation.
