I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you are starting from scratch and coming up with a complete project timeline, make sure to account for getting certificates, domain registration etc on top of the hours to setup, install, configure and test...
Don't add the Hyper-V role to your DC. That isn't supported by m$ and is very bad practice. Install Hyper-V on it's own, the OS should not do anything else, then install your DC as a VM, and your exchange server as a 2nd VM.

It all depends on the service provider and also requirement of customization.
