TRACER (Earth Tech's TRAnsportation Cost EstimatoR) is a parametric cost estimating tool created to help plan and budget for transportation, construction, renovation, and demolition projects at the predesign and preliminary design phases. TRACER employs preengineered model parameters and construction criteria to accurately
estimate project costs with limited design information.
- Users can develop detailed cost estimates based on minimal design information. Additional project knowledge can be incorporated to further refine the accuracy of the cost estimate.
- Cost estimates are location specific and include general conditions,
overhead and profit, risk allowance, and escalation.
- Engineering assumptions can be easily modified as site conditions
- Updates and enhancements to the software ensure current construction
and cost data.
