Spire’s consultants assisted CSL Plasma and the architect by providing cost analysis and estimating services for the $14.4 million New Plasma Logistics Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. The facility consisted of approximately 71,768 square feet (63,500 square feet plus the penthouse) warehouse/freezer building with an administrative wing and several alternates.
Spire produced a basis of estimate report for the owner, which included a design development cost estimate, construction cost summary, detailed elements cost breakdown, as well as several alternates. Spire also evaluated the impact of alternates to the project schedule.
CSL Plasma used Spire’s findings to evaluate a number of alternatives and identify cost savings opportunities.

Project controls are essential to keep complex construction projects on budget and on time. They help teams and stakeholders identify emerging risks early, before they become expensive, time-consuming problems. With advance warning, these issues can be mitigated or avoided altogether. Project controls also give leadership the data they need to set realistic expectations, manage subcontractors, and plan with confidence.
During the course of a project, program and project managers use controls to monitor time and cost expenditures and compare them to project lifecycle forecasts. They also rely on them to coordinate onsite execution with the milestones established during the design, procurement, entitlement, and pre-construction stages.
