Leveraging our comprehensive construction cost estimating database, we incorporate location-specific material and labor pricing data. Our expertise spans various trades, from airport highways to mechanical HVAC projects, serving subcontractors across diverse industries.

Design Estimates

We specialize in creating estimates and takeoffs for projects with limited details and specifications. In such cases, our estimators rely on defensible and reliable assumptions to meet our client's requirements. Our team is dedicated to satisfying our clients to the fullest extent, ensuring their needs are met with utmost care and professionalism.

Preliminary Estimates:

Typically prepared during the project's preconstruction phase, either during the design stages or just before construction begins. These estimates serve various purposes, such as securing loans, client budgeting, and conducting cost-benefit analysis for land acquisition, as well as preparing cost budgets for hiring contractors.

Conceptual Estimates:

Essential during the initial stages of a project, when details and specifications are limited. Conceptual estimates and takeoffs are crucial for evaluating the project's feasibility and conducting cost-benefit analyses.

Structural Steel and MEP Shop Drawings:

In addition to our estimating services, we cater to contractors, manufacturers, and fabricators with comprehensive CAD shop drawing services. These drawings facilitate the smooth manufacture and installation of prefabricated components. Utilizing advanced software like Revit, AutoCAD, and Solid Works, we ensure precise and efficient outcomes.

Takeoff Packages:

Our monthly takeoff packages offer contractors substantial cost savings, slashing expenses by up to 60% compared to in-house construction estimators. With our expert estimators proficient in certified estimating software, contractors can confidently bid on more projects, significantly increasing their chances of securing jobs.


Our commitment to clients goes beyond estimating services. We provide consultation to assist them in understanding construction costs and budget management. From aiding in bid filing to managing their bidding network profile, we strive to equip our clients with valuable insights and support.

Drawing Review: Our estimating process commences with a thorough review of the client’s plans and drawings. Our expert estimators and material takeoff specialists convene to discuss key features of the items and trades to be quantified and taken off.

Estimation: Using certified software such as Planswift, BlueBeam, and OST (OnScreenTakeoff), we meticulously prepare the takeoff and pricing for trades and significant line items. The estimate and takeoff sheet are then delivered in the client’s template or our own EXCEL sheets.

Pricing: Organizing the estimate with codes from the drawings or CSI codes, we apply relevant trade and code values. Our pricing considers zip code-based data and local vendor rates, taking into account factors like political impacts, labor wages, material logistics, inflation, site constraints, and more.

Final Audit: To ensure the quality of the estimate, an expert performs a final audit, guaranteeing accuracy and precision.
