CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATING SERVICES

World estimating offers a wide range of construction cost estimating services and cost management services to cater to the needs of the ever-growing construction industry. Being in the business for many years, we have reached a point where we totally understand the market conditions and can handle cost estimates for the project of any complexity. Our team of expert estimators delivers accurate, timely and comprehensive estimates containing marked-up plans with a special emphasis on precision and attention to detail and remain engaged with the clients from conception to completion of the project.

Our approach to cost estimating

We strongly believe that an accurate estimate acts as a primary tool in setting the budget and controlling cost throughout the lifecycle of the project. The estimation process at our firm starts with an in-depth review of design documents as well as the analysis of construction process, materials, location, permits, logistics, and other factors that reveal the hidden costs that can influence the project cost estimate. Once our trade-specific estimators complete the quantity takeoff, the lead estimator ensures that the estimate is up to the standard and complies with the project goals.

Our business relations with many vendors, general contractors, and subcontractors in North America, and careful bid analysis has aided us to develop a highly accurate cost database for pricing labor, material, and equipment costs. We also employ RSMeans and Craftsman for zip code based pricing. In this way, we provide the most effective and accurate estimating services in order to achieve our client’s milestones.

If you’re in search of the professional estimating services you can count on, we are eager to help!

Budget estimating

It also helps in the selection of the right material as well as to optimize efficiency and control costs. Our estimates can provide you the reliable pricing to make the right business decisions regarding vendor quotes and negotiating with contractors to avoid additional change orders.

Not only that, but we also provide assistance on bid filings and manage your bidding network profile. The bid-hit ratio of our commercial estimates is more than 92%.

Preliminary estimating

At the very initial stages of project planning, preliminary estimates allow investors, developers, and owners to check the feasibility of the project. We provide the most reliable and defensible preliminary estimates based on the data from past products using incomplete drawing plans. Our estimators come up with the square footage costs to help our clients analyze if the project is worth investing their money and time.

Design phase estimating
