Learn about capital projects taking place throughout King County using the Capital Projects Map. Capital projects are projects that help maintain or improve a county asset, such as repairing a bridge or improving stormwater flow in a creek basin to prevent flooding. Currently the Capital Projects Map features baselined capital projects that have a total estimated cost at completion of over $1 million.

Capital Improvement Program Glossary
Baseline Schedule Duration (BSD) - The difference in calendar days from the Baseline Substantial Completion date and the baseline beginning of Phase 3 Final Design.
Budget at Completion (BAC) – The sum of all the budgets established for the work to be performed on a project or a work breakdown structure component or a schedule activity. The total planned value for the project.
Capital Improvement Program - A group of King County capital projects to improve and maintain the County’s infrastructure in services to the public.
(Cost) Variance at Completion (CVAC or VAC) - A projection of the amount of budget deficit or surplus, expressed as the difference between the budget at completion and the estimate at completion.*
Cost Variance at Completion Percent (CVAC%) - The ratio of CVAC over the BAC, expressed as a percentage.
Project - A temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result.*
Project Baseline - The scope, schedule and budget set at the conclusion of the preliminary design phase when the preferred alternative has been selected and design has progressed adequately to make reasonable and informed budget and schedule commitments, at 30 to 40 percent design. Project baseline is used as a basis for variance reporting and performance measurement.**
Project Budget - The approved estimate for the project.
Spent-to-Date - Cost expended on the project at a specific time.
Baseline Budget - Budget for the project estimated at the project baseline.
Estimate at Completion - The expected cost needed to complete all the remaining work for the project.
Project Charter - A document issued by the project initiator or sponsor, that formally authorizes the existence of a project, and provides the project manager with the authority to apply organization resources to project activities.*
Project Phase - A collection of logically-related project activities, usually culminating in the completion of a major deliverable. Project phases are mainly completed sequential, but can overlap in some project situations.*
Design Phase - A specific phase of the project when the concept is formulated and engineered into plans and specifications which can be used to implement the project.
Construction Phase - A specific phase of the project during which project design is implemented.
Closeout Phase - The managerial process of finalizing the project. During this process, all physical work is completed, project records are filed, required closure notifications are distributed, and necessary or requested audits are conducted.
Project Purpose - How a project addresses and meets the need of the sponsor or stakeholder.
Project Schedule - The sequencing of activities and planned dates for estimating overall project durations and use as a tool to manage the project to a completion milestone.*
Design - Preliminary design start to final design finish.
Construction - Implementation start to substantial completion milestone.
Project Scope - The work that must be performed to deliver a product, service or result with the specified features and functions.*
Project Status - Used to track project performance on scope, schedule and/or budget.
Substantial Completion - The date when a project achieves substantial completion and the county can occupy the facility or begin using the project work as intended. Some minor construction work may still occur after substantial completion, such as landscaping or site restoration. (King County Capital Project Management Work Group)
