Preliminary Residential Estimates

We understand how important are preliminary estimates for investors and developers to have correct budget numbers for making the right decisions. From single-family, duplex to multi-family residential projects our estimators perform budget estimates and show you some hidden costs that you may have overlooked to help you identify issues before it would cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars. We also assist in the reevaluation of the estimate as a design or the project progresses.

Our preliminary estimate comprises the breakdown of the following quantities for material and labor:

  • Preliminaries
  • Substructures ( foundations, footings)
  • Superstructures (brickwork, walls, roofs, sidings, staircase, floors, screen, doors, windows, etc)
  • Finishes (flooring, drywall, painting, etc.)
  • Fittings
  • Services (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire, insulation, etc)
  • External Services
  • Contingency

Final Pre-Construction Residential Estimates

Before the commencement of construction, an investor has comparative bids from contractors that should get verified by a 3rd party estimate. Our estimates provide you with quality control of bids to verify that the bids comply with the market value to help in negotiating and getting bids from GCs and subcontractors.

Multi-Family & Apartment Residential Estimates

Many large projects especially multi-use family or apartment residential estimates are absolutely critical for the success of a profitable outcome before an investment goes in vain. We not only provide estimates but also assist in value engineering and pinpoint items and trades that bring huge costs and cut down the developer’s profit.


Whether designing a new home or remodel, some of the most time-consuming tasks are going back to redoing design work after an architect design doesn’t meet your client’s budget for the project. We help architects throughout the design phase. Our estimators work on schematic, conceptual, design development, and final construction documents to design estimates for architects and designers.
