6 1. INTRODUCTION Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has developed the Planning Level Cost Estimation Tool for purposes of estimating planning level, long-range cost estimates for proposed projects including the following 10 elements: Freeway Widening Managed Lanes (HOV, HOT, TOT) General Purpose Roadway Capacity Interchanges and Grade Separations Intersection Improvements Bridges Non-Motorized Elements (Sidewalks, Trails, Bike Lanes) Walls (Sound Barrier, Retaining) Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Right-of-Way Acquisition The tool provides an approximate cost for a project based on standard and customary elements typically assumed in engineering. Costs are based upon recent lettings for similar projects and can be updated on a quarterly basis. These cost estimates should be regarded as planning level and preliminary in nature. Variations from actual project costs will result from additional factors such as design exceptions, value engineering, utility relocation, and environmental impacts. As projects move forward in the project development process, emerging details will support the refinement of these costs. 2. OBJECTIVE The objective of the tool is to assist in interactive development of planning level cost estimation for various projects that are very conceptual, often with no or minimum design. Specifically, the tool has been developed to provide the following benefits: User-friendly interface design for project data entry; Develops cost estimates with information typically known at planning stages of a project; Utilizes unit price approach for cost estimation that accounts for various project types and development density types (Urban/Rural); Allows the user to perform project specific cost estimation as detailed project information becomes available; Provides the user with high flexibility for revising base assumptions; Estimates Right-of-Way acquisition cost that accounts for difference in county land costs as well as land use types (residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial); User s Manual Page 1

7 Easy to update the project cost estimate when one or more input variables need to be revised; Easy to update unit costs based on latest data available; Calculates both base year cost estimate and year of expenditure cost estimate based on beginning dates for Preliminary Engineering, Right-of-Way acquisition, Construction and assumed annual inflation rate; Provides project cost summary and reports the cost estimates by various cost components, such as Preliminary Engineering, Right-of-Way acquisition and Construction. Ability to save project cost estimation process and results. 3. FRAMEWORK OF THE TOOL The Planning Level Cost Estimation Tool begins with an introduction page and includes the following pages/modules: Project Information Page For entering general information for the project and selecting project elements Individual Project Element Calculation Modules For entering and estimating the construction costs for specific project element and/or Right-of-Way acquisition Input Data Verification Page For reviewing all input data and contingency information Planning Level Cost Estimate Summary For viewing final results Figure 1 illustrates the process flow followed in the Planning Level Cost Estimation Tool. The following sections provide a general walkthrough of the tool from initiation of a cost estimate through final results. Various calculations involved and the linkages between different parts of the tool are explained in the following sections. Assumptions made in the Planning Level Cost Estimation Tool are also highlighted in the sections that follow. User s Manual Page 2

9 4. HOW TO USE THE TOOL 4.1. Getting Started The Planning Level Cost Estimation Tool uses a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet with Visual Basic macros to assist in the interactive development of cost estimates for various projects. The user can copy/download the Tool from the ARC website to the user s computer and launch it using Microsoft Excel. The user needs to enable macros while opening the file (Figure 2). Simply click on Enable the content when the Excel program asks for it. Figure 2: Introduction Page Enable Macro Start the Tool Enable Macros Once macros are enabled, click the BEGIN button to start the Planning Level Cost Estimation Tool Project Information Page The first page the user will see after clicking the BEGIN button is the Project Information page. On this page, the user is required to enter the general information for the project, including Project Name, From Limit, To Limit, County (from drop-down list) and Area Type (from drop-down list). The user can also enter ARC Project ID/GDOT PI Number (optional) for reference purpose. Figure 3 shows a screenshot of the Project Information Page. All user input cells are highlighted in yellow on this page. The user is then required to check any of the following 10 elements that will be included in the project for cost estimation (Figure 3): Freeway Widening Managed Lanes (HOV, HOT, TOT) General Purpose Roadway Capacity User s Manual Page 4

10 Interchanges and Grade Separations Intersection Improvements Bridges Non-Motorized Elements (Sidewalks, Trails, Bike Lanes) Walls (Noise, Retaining) Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Right-of-Way Acquisition Please note that a particular project may or may not have all these elements. The tool offers options to select any combination of elements for a specific project. The user input selections will inform the tool which calculation modules to call. For example, if the user has selected General Purpose Roadway Capacity and Right-of-Way Acquisition then clicks the PROCEED button, the tool will call out these two calculation modules and display the following two input screens in order: the General Purpose Roadway Capacity input screen followed by the Right-of-Way Acquisition input screen.

11 4.3. Freeway Widening If the user has checked the Freeway Widening element on the Project Information page, the Freeway Widening page will be displayed. The minimum inputs required for producing a freeway widening estimate are: Freeway widening type; Number of lanes in each direction under no build condition; Number of lanes in each direction under build condition; and Length of proposed freeway widening lanes. All required user input cells are highlighted in yellow on the Freeway Widening Page. Figure 4 shows the Freeway Widening page with some example data. Figure 4: Freeway Widening Page Back to Previous Input Screen Proceed to Next Input Screen Choose estimation method Required User Input Back to Introduction Page There are two freeway widening types for the user to select from the drop-down list: (1) Interstate Widening Asphalt and (2) Interstate Widening Concrete. The variations of freeway widening type and area type (urban or rural) result in the following four different categories: Interstate Widening - Asphalt Urban Interstate Widening - Concrete Urban Interstate Widening - Asphalt Rural Interstate Widening - Concrete Rural To estimate the cost of each freeway widening category, the user can either choose Use default per mile cost or Use project specific components in the cell highlighted in green. When Use default per mile cost is selected from the drop-down list, the default unit cost will be displayed, for example, $14,168,000/mile (1-lane each direction) for Interstate Widening - Asphalt in an User s Manual Page 6

12 urban area. The default per mile costs were developed based on standard and customary elements typically assumed in engineering and further validated with recent lettings for similar projects. The base costs per item were pulled from the latest (2009) GDOT mean item summary. The assumptions that were used to develop the default cost estimates for freeway widening are included in Appendix A-1. The quantities and costs vary according to freeway widening type (asphalt or concrete) and area type (urban or rural). Table 1 lists the default base estimates per mile for all four different freeway widening categories: Table 1: Freeway Widening Unit Costs Freeway Widening Type Unit Cost Unit Interstate Widening - Asphalt Urban Interstate Widening - Concrete Urban Interstate Widening - Asphalt Rural Interstate Widening - Concrete Rural $ 14,168,000 Per Mile (1-lane each direction) $ 16,815,000 Per Mile (1-lane each direction) $ 5,425,000 Per Mile (1-lane each direction) $ 6,102,000 Per Mile (1-lane each direction) When Use project specific components is selected from the drop-down list, the table that lists all detailed information to develop the default unit costs including specific components, cost per unit, quantities and percentage for mark-up items will be displayed. The user can then customize the default unit cost estimates by revising specific components, unit costs, quantities and percentage for mark-up items in the override cells shaded in yellow (see Figure 5 on the next page). This function provides the user with high flexibility for revising base assumptions when detailed data becomes available. User s Manual Page 7

It needs to be noted that Fulton County has been divided into three different areas: Fulton North, Fulton South and Fulton City of Atlanta, to differentiate the significant land use cost variations in the County. The land use costs per acre are consistent with the ROW and Utility Estimation Tool (RUCEST) developed by GDOT. Table 10: ROW Costs by County and Land Use Type County Name Cost Per Acre ($) by Land Use Type Commercial Residential Agricultural Industrial Barrow $400,000 $50,000 $15,000 $75,000 Bartow $300,000 $50,000 $20,000 $30,000 Carroll $400,000 $25,000 $15,000 $20,000 Cherokee $400,000 $100,000 $50,000 $75,000 Clayton $400,000 $40,000 $25,000 $50,000 Cobb $700,000 $150,000 $75,000 $200,000 Coweta $200,000 $50,000 $20,000 $25,000 DeKalb $700,000 $150,000 $100,000 $150,000 Douglas $250,000 $75,000 $25,000 $100,000 Fayette $300,000 $40,000 $20,000 $35,000 Forsyth $400,000 $100,000 $25,000 $30,000 Fulton - North $700,000 $150,000 $100,000 $200,000 Fulton - City of Atlanta $2,000,000 $500,000 $25,000 $1,167,000 Fulton - South $400,000 $75,000 $25,000 $100,000 Gwinnett $400,000 $100,000 $25,000 $200,000 Hall $350,000 $50,000 $25,000 $150,000 Henry $350,000 $50,000 $15,000 $75,000 Newton $350,000 $50,000 $15,000 $75,000 Paulding $250,000 $75,000 $20,000 $100,000 Rockdale $350,000 $100,000 $20,000 $125,000 Spalding $350,000 $50,000 $15,000 $75,000 Walton $300,000 $100,000 $15,000 $75,000 The minimum inputs required for producing a ROW acquisition estimate are the amount of ROW needed in acres and the percentage of usage by land use type: commercial, residential, agricultural and/or User s Manual Page 28

34 industrial land. It is important to note that the percentage of usage for those four land use types needs to total 100%; otherwise, the tool will return an error message. All required user input cells are highlighted in yellow on the Right-of-Way Acquisition page. Figure 22 shows the Right-of-Way Acquisition page with some example data. Figure 22: Right-of-Way Acquisition Page Back to Previous Input Screen Proceed to Next Input Screen Required User Input Optional User Input Override Cell Back to Introduction Page The tool also allows the user to provide optional information regarding residential and business displacements including the cost per unit and total units that will potentially be impacted by the project. A ROW factor that includes scheduling contingency, administrative/court cost and inflation is used to calculate the total ROW cost. A value of 2.5 is used in the tool as the default ROW factor and is consistent with the ROW and Utility Estimation Tool (RUCEST) developed by GDOT. However, the user has the option to override the ROW factor in the highlighted cell below the default value (see Figure 22). User s Manual Page 29

35 4.13. Input Data Verification Page Once the user has filled out the information for each element selected on the Project Information page and click the PROCEED button on the last element input page, the Input Data Verification page will be displayed. Figure 23 shows the Input Data Verification page with some example data. The Input Data Verification page summarizes all the key inputs provided by the user and lists the estimated costs for each of the selected elements. It also provides the user an opportunity to verify if all information is accurate before finalizing the cost estimate. If the user wants to modify the information for any of the selected elements, the user can click the orange arrow to go back to the specific page. The user, however, cannot go back to an element page which was not originally selected on the Project Information page by clicking the orange arrow. In this case, the user could click the START OVER button to add or delete any specific elements in the project cost estimate. Figure 23: Input Data Verification Page Back to Specific Element Page Override Cell Back to Introduction Page Proceed to Planning Level Cost Estimate Summary Page On the Input Data Verification page, contingency percentages are also listed for all project elements selected on Project Information page. Table 11 lists the contingency assumptions used in the tool for all project elements. As can be seen from the table, contingency percentages vary by project element type. If User s Manual Page 30

36 the user wants to change the contingency value, the user can do so by entering a different value in the override cells highlighted in yellow (see Figure 23 on the previous page). Table 11: Contingency Assumptions Project Elements Contingency Assumptions Freeway Widening 35% Managed Lanes 35% Surface Street New/Widening 20% Interchanges & Grade Separations 30% Intersections 10% Bridges 10% Non-Motorized Elements 10% Walls 10% ITS 5% User s Manual Page 31

37 4.14. Planning Level Cost Estimate Summary When the user clicks the FINALIZE button on the Input Data Verification page, the Planning Level Cost Estimate Summary page will be displayed. Figure 24 shows the Planning Level Cost Estimate Summary page with some example data. On this page, the user is required to enter the implementation schedule: beginning year of Preliminary Engineering, Right-of-Way Acquisition and Construction. Based on the current year, the schedule information entered and the annual inflation rate, the tool will calculate the year of expenditure cost estimates. The base estimates and year of expenditure estimates are provided side by side in the estimated project cost table. Preliminary Engineering costs were assumed to be 10 percent of the total construction cost. The default annual inflate rate used in the tool is 4 percent. The user can override the information in the Annual Inflation Rate Override cell highlighted in yellow (see Figure 24). Figure 24: Planning Level Cost Estimate Summary Page Required User Input Override Cell User s Manual Page 32

38 5. USER FLEXIBILITY IN THE TOOL As mentioned in previous sections, the user has the option of selecting one or multiple project elements in each cost estimate. Most project element pages provide the user with the option of choosing the cost estimation methodology Use default unit cost or Use project specific components. Use default unit cost allows the user to develop a quick cost estimate for project that is very conceptual, often with little or no design information available. This is typical at the planning stages of a project. Use project specific components allows the user to customize the default unit cost estimates by revising specific components, unit costs, quantities and percentage for mark-up items. This function provides the user with high flexibility for revising base assumptions when detailed data becomes available. The user has the option of shifting from one page or module to another for making input changes and viewing different results. It also provides the user with the ability to print and save project cost estimates both project details and results. Table 12 lists each navigation button included in the Planning Level Cost Estimation Tool. Table 12: Navigation Buttons Button Function Access the Project Information page. A confirmation box will pop up to ask the user whether to start a new cost estimate or continue working on a previously saved cost estimate. Return to the previous page. Go to the next input page. Return to the Introduction page. Return to a specific project element. Finalize the cost and access the Planning Level Cost Estimate Summary. User s Manual Page 33
