Construction Estimation

Construction estimation must be accurate to be successful. Performing calculations by hand is completely outmoded. New software options make the process accurate and go about ten times faster. There are many choices out there for contractors and builders of all sizes. Let us show you the numerous possible solutions for you.

Construction estimation is basically a measurement of the job times the cost of materials and labor. It must be as accurate as possible. Experience, of course, goes a long way toward creating accurate estimates for elements like:

  • Painting
  • Concrete work
  • Electrical
  • Roofing
  • Plumbing
  • Framing
  • Drywall
  • Millwork

What is your specialty? Let's sit down and talk!

Your Time is Valuable
The time it takes to create a competitive estimate by hand can be time spent putting more bids together. In today's hyper-competitive construction market, speed plus accuracy are very important. And if plans change or costs go up after the bid is submitted, you have to be positioned to act.

Would you like to be able to do more work in less time, reduce your costs and increase your profits? Today's construction estimation tools make it possible.

Construction Estimation Software

Today's resources have the ability to make instant calculations directly from the plan room, manual entries, digitizers or other interfaces. "Point, drag and click" technology comes in many forms and makes it possible for even the least tech-savvy people to create estimates and material lists that are what large customers have come to expect:

- Highly accurate

- Quickly created

- Intuitive and easy to understand

- Simple to share

- Easy to update

The new way of estimating will accurately calculate the right quantity of materials and costs using powerful technology plus historical data. The result is a bid your customers will have confidence in, because software-generated estimates are today's gold standard.

Enhance Collaboration
Communication among the key players in a project has been revolutionized by technology. Architects, engineers, builders and contractors can now easily share information - often without paper. You can annotate your figures and get input instantly without leaving your desk, home or car.

How Much Does it Cost?
We believe there is a perfect solution for users of all sizes, and we gain great satisfaction in helping them find it. If you are a smaller company or do not want to make a large investment in technology, you don't have to! We understand and we want to work with you.

Choices abound: some programs operate in the Cloud, others are web based, and some use the software you already have like Microsoft Excel. Most are compatible with both Mac and PC. We can tailor a solution for generating building estimates within any reasonable budget.

Go Ahead - Make the Investment!
The longer you wait to utilize the new technology, the more jobs the next guy will get - the one who took the plunge. We understand many tradespeople still shy away from going high-tech because, frankly, they don't understand it. Or they like doing things the old way. Or they believe retraining will cost too much and take too long. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Easy to Learn
Depending on the tools you select, training is usually faster and simpler than you think. The key is finding an expert to show you and your employees how to do it - in other words, it's finding the right teacher!
