He has provided estimate reviews on numerous FTA funded transit programs.


Public agencies, program managers, and those engaged in developing and managing such capital projects are aware of the challenges in delivering large capital programs. Cost overruns, delays, have been a major concern for owners, management teams, contractors, and stakeholders.

Thus, when a project is delivered within budget and time, it is important we understand the factors that contributed to its success. The Sacramento International Airport Capital Improvement Program under Big Build was delivered $65 million under budget and 4 months ahead of Schedule.

What accounted for the success of the Big-Build?

Seth Danquah, a lead estimator on the project will share with you about the role of communication and partnering and other factors that accounted for the success of the Sacramento international Airport.
