If correct, that is a 0.36% cost overrun of a 14 million dollar effort. It is insignificant.

MY OPINION is that if you have a significant construction project and don't anticipate there might be as much as a 10% cost overrun, you are being naive. I always get a chuckle over the house renovation TV shows where the costs start to slip over the budget and panic ensues.
