Accurate Commercial Construction Cost Estimating
We provide accurate construction cost estimating for commercial projects to our clients. The process is simple. The client sends us the project plans and we provide free consultation as well as a quote to do the project according to the given scope. Once we have an agreement, we charge 50% of the fee initially and start the project.
The first part of the estimating process is to properly review the project plans and determine whether the estimate in question is a preliminary estimate or a detailed estimate. The commercial building cost estimators next mark the blueprints on Bluebeam Revu, a software that is used to determine the quantity takeoffs. The third phase is cost estimating, where we use RSMeans. It is used by commercial estimators to obtain prices for labor and materials, as well as labor productivity.
Once a thorough cost estimate is completed, everything is broken down to show the client every minor detail. In the commercial building cost estimating, we calculate estimates for the foundation/concrete, steel, Roofing, Drywall, and MEP. The final document contains the entire material takeoff as well as material and labor prices and is provided to the client in a well-organized and self-designed format.
