Bid Evaluation by LCA

Bid Evaluation by Least Cost Analysis

ACPA-Website-Thumbnail-Engineers-Liability-Bid-Evaluation-by-LCA-1Selecting pipe materials best suited for service as a storm sewer, culvert, sanitary sewer, or small bridge replacement is of primary importance to the design engineer.

The most economical alternate must be determined through a least cost analysis.
