We utilize industry standard methods for our estimating process, as recognized by ASCE.
Design Phase Estimating
Fast-track, or design/bid/build, we provide estimating services to identify cost changes due to design, program, or schedule. In today’s fast paced design climate, understanding the cost of changing project requirements is crucial to maximizing project quality and owner satisfaction. We review all available information, and apply our extensive experience to identify cost drivers, and provide specific feedback to help the team maximize program and quality, while achieving schedule and cost goals.
Throughout the process we provide meaningful feedback on issues as we encounter them. We also provide if requested a systematic review of documents to minimize bidding and construction issues.
We provide photo and dimensional documentation for existing spaces to allow designers to focus on the client and the space, not the numbers during initial site visits. Documents can include 3d photography, drone overflights, and traditional photo documentation. We provide on-site support for due diligence facility documentation activity.
We are expert users of insurance loss claim software, and can provide valuable insights in review of your insurance loss estimate, as well as conduct surveys and generate an independent insurance estimate, for an easy comparison with the initial claim estimate. We can also provide independent third party resolution or arbitration services.
