Park MGM Las Vegas

Dear CERT member,
Our fall 2019 CERT conference will be held at the Park MGM Las Vegas on Monday-Tuesday September 9-10, 2019. This event will be co-located with the national conference of the National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA). Planning is underway now, and the committee is seeking ideas for topics and speakers to fill this two day event. Topics relevant to the estimating profession and to the business of consulting are what we are looking for. We will feature an open forum round table discussion on day two where members can share ideas and experiences with the other attendees. We will have an opportunity to engage with our colleagues in the construction auditing profession, and will likely be able to attend some of their sessions. We are also seeking sponsor ideas, so if you have a contact at a vendor whose services and products you utilize and think they may be interested in sponsoring our event, please let us know that too. Be on the lookout for more information in the coming days, and send your ideas to planning committee chair Dan Frondorf by email at

Pre-Construction Services, Inc.

Pre Construction Services, Inc. is a consulting firm providing cost estimates throughout all the design phases of commercial construction projects. Our clients include architects, general contractors, engineering firms, government agencies, developers, attorneys, and business owners.

In 1994, David Battle began a construction cost estimating business which eventually became known as Pre Construction Services, Inc. He saw a developing need for architects to have an independent cost analysis of their designs, assisting them with budget constraints and the efficiency and quality of design. Working with architects throughout all design phases of a single project has lead to the satisfaction of owners and architects alike. Over the years clients continue to depend on Pre Construction Services, Inc. to provide cost effective design balance to the owner’s budget..
