Construction Cost Estimating

Our Construction Estimating Team produces estimates for new construction, renovations, defect remediation and property loss/builder's risk damage claims. Our programs are capable of being customized to any clients' needs by devising integrated solutions for challenging construction estimating projects, construction audits and comparative analyses.

Certified by the American Society of Professional Estimators, our Lead Estimators are credentialed career Estimators. Most of our Estimators have firsthand construction experience which includes bidding, negotiation and cost management of actual construction projects.

We have provided services to Architects, Owners and Lenders and Institutions during the design phase, as well as involvement through completion of construction. With respect to Adjusters and Insurance Companies, our Estimators are experienced in damage assessment, cost evaluation and the process of negotiation when required. Additionally, we have been involved in all aspects of subrogation and construction defect litigation.
