What is a Project Budget?

A Project Budget, in the construction industry, refers to a financial plan that estimates the costs associated with each phase of a construction project. It includes direct costs such as materials, labor, equipment, and subcontractor charges, as well as indirect costs such as site overheads, insurance, permits, and contingencies. A well-prepared project budget aids in determining the financial feasibility of the project, managing costs effectively, and minimizing financial risks. It serves as a financial guide during the project execution and helps in tracking deviations between projected and actual costs. It is a critical tool for project managers to ensure a project is completed within the calculated cost framework.
