Our Approach

Quantity Calculation: Our experienced team calculates the quantities of various items required for the project by carefully analyzing the dimensions and specifications provided in the drawings and other project documents. We accurately determine the required quantities to ensure a reliable basis for cost estimation.

Unit Cost Analysis: After calculating the quantities, we evaluate the unit cost of each item based on market rates, historical data, and industry standards. We consider factors such as material costs, labor costs, equipment costs, and other relevant expenses to arrive at a comprehensive unit cost for each item.

Cost Estimation: Using the calculated quantities and unit costs, we prepare a detailed cost estimation for the project. This estimation includes the total cost of materials, labor, equipment, subcontractors, and other expenses required to complete the project. Our estimations provide the owner with a reasonably accurate idea of the project’s overall cost, enabling informed decision-making.

Value Engineering: As part of our estimating and costing process, we incorporate value engineering principles to optimize the cost while preserving essential functions and quality. We identify cost-saving opportunities and propose alternative solutions that maintain or enhance value without compromising the project’s objectives.
