Reviewing a project and estimating the cost it will take to complete it is just the first step in the construction process. Too many contractors underestimate the amount of time a project will take, as well as the cost. Chianelli Estimating takes a balanced approach when providing building construction estimates. We combine construction estimating with a level-headed, realistic view to make sure you meet your project goals and deadlines.
How does Chianelli Estimating differ from other estimating companies?
After decades of hands-on construction experience, we still use that roll-up-your-sleeves attitude to get the job done, and done well. Chianelli Estimating takes pride in being a 21st-century company with old-fashioned values and standards.
Our construction cost estimating utilizes state-of-the-art technology. Whatever your specific requirements are, we can meet them. We have e-Take-Off, PlanSwift, Sage Timberline Precision Extended, and Excel at our disposal. We use our own databases, which have been developed over decades of construction estimating and have proven efficient and effective. At times, we may also use other databases as a reference, such as RSMeans for statistical and regional pricing adjustments for projects nationwide.

Grow your business with Chianelli Estimating
As a business owner or manager, you already know you can’t cut prices to save your bottom line. Thorough and accurate construction estimating is vital to your company. However, hiring an in-house estimator that dramatically increases your overhead isn’t your only option.
Chianelli Estimating can save you money in the long run. Our hourly fee is higher than the costs of a full-time employee, but it is all-inclusive. This means no payroll taxes, no workman’s compensation expenses, no sick time or vacation pay, nor any other expense you may have when hiring a full-time estimator.
