OUR ESTIMATION PROCESS

  • We start by reviewing drawing plans, technical specifications, and other details provided by the client.
  • Then by using the latest software like Planswift, we import the plans and perform on-screen takeoff to quantify each and every electrical component based on its size and type.
  • After the on-screen takeoff, the estimator exports all the quantities to EXCEL sheets and organized by systems and phases or by cost codes or as per requirement.
  • For pricing, we use RSMeans and our relations with wholesalers and suppliers for up to date and location-based costs. Or as per demand, we can work with your supplier quotes for wiring, fixtures, or other electrical components.
  • Man-hours for each item are calculated to accurately predict the labor costs.
  • The final estimate is cross-checked by our lead estimator for quality assurance.
  • As per our client’s requirement, we also add overheads and profits and build your bidding proposal ready to submit for bid.
