|Cost management is a major function of CM (construction management) companies for clients and cost estimating is a critical task in that it provides a baseline for cost management and a foundation for decision making in construction projects. For this purpose, CM companies need to obtain and use good quality data, which leads to more accurate and efficient cost estimating. As the use of big data becomes increasingly important in the construction industry, researches related to the theme have become the active areas of studies. However, literature review shows that the current situations in relation to the use of big for cost estimating of CM companies are under-researched. The objective of the study is to identify key characteristics and implications in the use of big data for cost estimating of CM companies, which can contribute to develop strategies for such purposes.
