Applications of neural network were widely used in construct project cost estimate. Aim at handling weakness of poor convergence and insufficient forecast, an improved fuzzy neural network method based on SOFM (Self-Organizing Feature Map) was proposed to replace the fashionable T-S fuzzy neural network. The method illustrated how to apply SOFM to improve the fault such as poor convergence and insufficient forecast. After optimizing of T-S fuzzy neural network model, construct project cost estimate model had been built up. Finally, the model was set up with the purpose of comparing generalization ability by 18 examples and 2 testing samples.
