What are Budgetary Estimates?
With 7 years of experience, Bidding Professionals guarantee accuracy in all types of budget estimates. We have the resources and expertise to produce accurate and precise quantity takeoffs within short deadlines. Once we determine the quantities, then we are ready to put our predetermined labour and material prices according to the zip code so you can present them to the stakeholders.
We can deliver the project within 24 hours in case of early submissions. We start working on the project immediately once we receive the project plans in CAD, DWG or PDF format. We never hand over the project to the client before our senior team reviews the project and makes the necessary additions and changes.
What's The Difference Between An Estimate And A Budget?
Cost Estimate and Budget are two different processes involving different procedures and both are essential for the complete construction planning process. The budget provides a complete overview of how much a project is estimated to cost including the complete project cost as well as the partial cost of each trade of the project scope. The budget should be within the available funds of the organization or stakeholders. On the other hand, cost estimates are the costs associated with the work packages within the project schedule. Cost estimates must include any assumptions made during the estimation process..
Types of Budget Estimate
A budget can be defined as a plan to spend money for a specific purpose or objective. Keeping the objectives in mind, a budget estimate can be classified into following categories.
You can have a budget estimate created for any of the following construction areas:
Our Approach To Budget Estimating
Bidding Professionals LLC is a team of professionally trained project managers and estimators who strongly believe that an accurate estimate is essential for setting and controlling the cost of the project.
