Some Glimpses of Our Work
Concrete estimating is a process of estimating concrete material; that how many bags of concrete will be required, labour for concrete, and other concrete overheads for any residential or commercial project.
Concrete Estimating Services mainly include concrete takeoffs and cost estimating. It takes a lot of effort and experience to calculate accurate quantity takeoff. Our dedicated concrete estimators make it possible with their hard work and experience-based estimating. We use premium software like BlueBeam Revu, PlanSwift, RSMeans and Kubla Cubed to read and mark structural drawings to calculate concrete quantities. The following image shows a segment of our concrete takeoffs showing the format we use and our detailed and accurate estimate.
Accurate Concrete Estimation
Concrete is the major and one of the most important trades in all types of residential, commercial, and industrial projects. It is the foundation of a building so while calculating concrete material takeoff and estimating, the concrete estimator has to be really accurate to avoid any pre-construction or post-construction losses for the owner or the contractor. Our expert concrete estimators accurately quantify all the major as well as minor concrete quantities like foundations, footings, walls, formwork, etc.
