Charlie Bowers, one of the principles of EstimatingPlus, is one of only 4 people designated as a member emeritus of Center for JOC Excellence for his seventeen years of training of CJE members and educating the building community as a whole. He has been fondly referred to as Mr.JOC because of his in depth understanding of JOC as an Alternative Delivery System.
Alan Levin, one of the other principles developed and introduced a Unit Price Estimating System for PGAI a major subsidiary of PG (one of the largest contractors in Southern Africa). He developed and implemented a form of Job Order Contracting with several major Owners such as Woolworth's before JOC was formerly developed by the US military.
