Those of us in the Bay Area have our own example. The new east HALF of the San Francisco Oakland Bridge was originally estimated at under $1B, IIRC, and is now at $6B and counting.....

Remember when you were putting the Engineer's estimate together, and you were thinking, "How can this project ever cost so much??."
And when the bids come in, you were thinking, "How could I ever have estimated it so low??"
Generally, take your best estimate and double it! And take your best construction schedule and triple it! That'll get you in the ballpark.
