How Does Our Methodical Industrial Estimation Process Operate?
Federal Estimating follows a systematic process for industrial estimating, beginning with a comprehensive discussion among the engineers and estimation experts to define the project’s scope. This detailed analysis examines the client’s plans and specifications to identify the individual components and discover any process systems or potential gaps in information. Using advanced software, our experienced estimator extracts data from drawings, plans, P&IDs, and PFDs to determine each component’s labor and material costs.
Gathering Project Information
We utilize data from RSMeans and our proprietary database, which incorporates estimated costs from around the world, trade agencies, vendors, designers, and engineers to provide zip code-based material and labor costs. All factors, including location, logistics, permits, equipment rentals, contingencies, and indirect expenses, are considered. The lead estimator then cross-checks to ensure the estimate aligns with the project’s objectives.
