The 17th Graz Building Operations and Construction Industry Symposium was held this year under the topic "Reduction of construction sequence disturbances and systematic handling of additional cost demands". More than 300 interested parties were welcomed to the event at Graz University of Technology. iC was represented as sponsor and the construction industry expert Dieter Schlagbauer gave a lecture on "Construction site overhead costs and their adjustment":

[...] the development of the ggst. model, in order to be able to carry out a similar evaluation in a relatively short time, depending only on a few input variables, for different trades within a project or for different projects".
