Real-Time Estimating

Leverage collaboration for your value

Understand benefits and costs early in your project.

You deserve the opportunity to make decisions on the budget allocation of your project.

By tracking what is changing, how it is changing, and whether those changes were intentional, real-time estimating keeps projects on track and owners informed at a deep level.

Our Estimating team works closely with the Design team throughout the design process to keep the project owner in the loop. With updates as often as every week, estimators compare one 3D model to the next, quantify and identify the value associated with changes between them.

You deserve a champion in the construction process

The depth of our preconstruction services, including real-time estimating, are designed to position us as your champion throughout the construction process. Real-time estimating allows you to best understand the benefits and costs of what you’re buying both in terms of materials and services. Our goal is ensuring you can make evaluations on your options before construction ever begins.

Our clients typically gain five percent more value because of the insight our team brings to the table.

We track and monitor all developments

Throughout the design process, our estimators work hand-in-hand with the design team to review updated 3D models as often as weekly. By comparing models against each other, quantifying changes and applying value to them, project owners receive unmatched insight into the plans and gain the ability to provide a deeper level of direction over all aspects.

The benefits of double- and triple-checking

The sheer volume of moving parts within any construction project, whether new build or renovation, makes it challenging for one team to understand every facet and impact of each decision. In a school construction project, adding one wall to create an additional classroom means additional cabinetry, plumbing, doors, windows and more. Our estimators can check that information against the plans and then deliver updated, accurate information to the project owner.
