The aim of construction cost forecasting is to provide an estimate of a construction project. All the relevant stakeholders are interested in knowing the financial implications of a project. There are various procedures used by building professionals to predict the construction cost of projects. In order to predict construction costs, models have been developed by Building and Engineering professionals. Model is a procedure developed to reflect, by means of derived processes, adequate

This study aims at developing a construction cost model for evaluating road projects in Ghana. The method used in developing the model is based on the linear method of calculating total construction costs.
