Commercial developers have to estimate the figures and amount even before the development of plans. Now, World Estimating, having portfolio of million-dollar evaluation of projects, expertise and historical data help us build Preliminary commercial estimates for real estate developers.

2- Pre-construction final commercial estimates:

Finally, after the completion of the construction drawings, along the design phase or after its completion, soon the general contractors and subcontractors start filing bid proposals. How come any commercial developer comes to know that the bids are the market value? How to negotiate on prices with GCs and Subs if commercial developers do not go for services of any expert estimating firm.

It can be PDF, CAD format or a Building Information Model (BIM), send us the files in a dropbox link, pdf or any other format.

The experienced estimator will collect all the information and add what will be missing into it for coming at a budget cost. This is accomplished through the usage of specific estimating software that is designed specifically for the construction industry.
