In a world where the complexity of projects in the process industry is increasing and the need to manage costs is becoming more urgent, the Dutch Association of Cost Engineers, better known as DACE, was formed.
In 1959, the predecessor of DACE – Webci – published its first Price Booklet. Now, 36 editions later, the DACE Price Booklet has become well-known in the Netherlands and internationally among all engineers involved in investment cost estimation for industrial projects in the process industry.
What does DACE do?
DACE brings together professionals in the field of cost engineering through various gatherings and activities. This ensures the development and transfer of knowledge. They have various Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that focus on specific topics within the field of Cost Engineering and Value Management. The foundation also regularly organizes events, including seminars, workshops, and conferences. Additionally, DACE offers trainings and certifications.
However, what is considered absolutely essential in the process industry are the DACE Price Booklets, made possible by the anonymous contributions of these remarkable professionals. With these booklets, the construction costs of complete industrial process facilities can be calculated.
