Estimating is Critical to Your Success
Are you left with the memories of a project gone bad and lost money?
If you are fortunate you can absorb the loss, move on and learn from the incident, if not you’re out of business.
There can be times when no matter how skilled you are or how efficiently you think you’re working, it can seem like you’re going backwards.
Construction estimating is something that should not be taken lightly, particularly when it is directly related to the solvency of your business.
It’s more than just compiling a list of materials and putting all the parts and pieces together to come up with a project cost.
Construction estimating can be difficult because you must have the ability to perform quality work, see the big picture and plan for the unforeseen simultaneously.
When a project fails it can be far reaching and everyone loses. An experienced estimator is priceless and can be the difference in a successful project or an unfortunate outcome.
Some contractors can spend a few hours developing their estimate and can nail it perfectly.
The truth of the matter is, this occurs less than you might think! Skilled tradesmen are trained to perform at precision levels with their tools but can sometimes pay too little attention to the detailed paper trail and estimate development which is the backbone to success.
It may be time to hire a professional estimating company to help you.
Remember that some consultants are better than others and in the end you’ll need one that really knows what they are doing.
It’s important to find an estimating company that you are comfortable working with, who can provide you peace of mind, minimize your risk and help preserve your reputation with your clients.
Remember, in the world of construction, you are only as good as your last project.
