Precisely How Will Our Commercial Estimators Collaborate on Your Project?
We take a systematic approach to construction estimating, ensuring accuracy and precision in every project.
- Our commercial estimators begin by convening for a formal meeting to determine the full extent of the project and assign tasks to estimators with relevant industry experience.
- We then analyze the client-provided project documentation and requirements, and our trade specialist estimators import the plans using state-of-the-art software. Using the point-and-click approach, they digitally take off the amounts, measuring dimensions and scales to ensure precise data collection.
