```									Chapter 12: Cost Estimate

After the design process was finished, such as completion of the runway, taxiway,
drainage, and grading, the next step was to estimate the cost associated with building the
Lake Mathews Airport. To determine a rough cost estimate, the 2006 RS Means
Construction Cost Data was used as an aid. This means of estimating cost is in
compliance with industry standards. The values obtained from this book include
material, labor, equipment, overhead and profit. Another thing that also needed to be
noted is that there is a slight discrepancy in the prices between the year 2006 and the
present. Some possible reasons for this inconsistency would be due to the increase in
gas prices, the value of materials, and inflation.

In the cost estimate spreadsheet table, pavement, airport lighting, stripping and signage,
landscape, drainage, airport structures, fencing and soundproof walls, and earthwork were
all considered in the cost estimate. For each topic, the specific numerical cost vales can
be seen in Tables 12.1 through 12.6.

Once the cost estimates were known for all of the individual sections, the total cost of the
airport was calculated by summing up all of the individual aspects. The preliminary cost
for the Lake Mathews Airport was determined to be \$23,568,125 roughly, as illustrated in
Table 12.7.

Table 12.7. Preliminary cost for the Lake Mathews Airport.

Description                                         Total Cost

Pavement                                     \$10,820,038.02
Airport lighting, striping, signage                        \$275,324.08
Landscape                                      \$68,079.06
Drainage                                      \$984,422.17
Airport structures, fencing, soundwalls                      \$9,071,078.39
Earthwork                                     \$2,349,183.04
PRELIMINARY COST                                      \$23,568,125

For the airport, a contingency plan was also developed. The contingency plan was
developed according to the 2006 RS Means Construction Cost Data. For the Lake
Mathews Airport, this includes 20 percent for the conceptual stage, five percent for
unfavorable economic conditions, four percent for unaccounted utilities, and one percent
for unaccounted permits. The 20 percent conceptual contingency would cover any
changes and overage costs during the construction phase. For example, if the cut and fill
cost was determined to be more than what the engineers planned then that extra cost
would already be accounted for in the cost under this particular contingency. The five
percent economic contingency would cover the discrepancy in prices between the 2006
and present values due to the increase in gas prices, value of materials and inflation. The
four percent unaccounted utilities contingency would account for the cost of utilities that
was not accounted for in the initial design process. The one percent permit contingency
would cover the cost of permits that was not accounted for in the unit cost. This accounts
for a total of 30 percent added on to the total preliminary cost.

With the continguency plan that was developed for the Lake Mathews Airport, the cost of
the airport would increase by \$7,070,437. Considering the 30 percent contingency plan,
the total cost for the Lake Mathews Airport was brought up to \$30,638,562. This value
seemed reasonable, but only after the cost with contingency was considered.
