Estimating is not just about giving clients a price, it is about making sure we have a full understanding of all the requirements a client has, to ensure we offer the best solution possible for them. The estimating team will work together with clients to understand exactly what is required.
We like to start our collaborative process by confirming with our clients what they are hoping to achieve and what their holistic goals are. From there we are able to assess and recommend how the project should be approached to deliver the best possible maximum benefit.
With over 20 years experience in delivering light gauge steel frame (LGSF) solutions, our estimating team have the combined knowledge to enable accurate costing and realistic timescales. All estimates are clearly laid out detailing the scope of work with drawing numbers provided for clarity and consistency and can be referred to as the project is delivered.
In addition, we provide 3D graphics as required, to help clients understand the features and benefits of the system.
The detail in our estimates provides clarification of scope of supply and all elements contained across the project with prices and delivery timescales for all items such as:
- External load bearing walls
- Internal load bearing walls
- Floor options
- Lift shaft options
- Staircases and installation
- HRS locations and quantities
- Roof options
Our estimating team can also highlight the potential for additional extras over the scope of the project, which are available on an optional basis, for example craneage. We are on hand to recommend which ancillary products will help your build from a product efficiency and value engineering perspective.
The estimate our clients receive clearly identifies the technical elements of the products to be manufactured and installed. The estimates provide clarity for our clients, vital to ensuring the smooth design, planning and running of any project.
By effective planning and communication through the estimating process, the project will see a reduction in waste and any hold ups in production. Our estimating team will work with clients to ensure everything is clarified and agreed before we move onto the pre-construction stage.
If you have a project and would like to talk to one of our estimating team, even for an initial appraisal, we will be more than happy to help. Please contact us.
