OUR SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO INDUSTRIAL ESTIMATION

Top Estimators starts the estimation process with a discussion between estimators and engineers that defines the scope of the project. After that, a keen analysis is performed on the specifications and plans provided by the client. It involves breaking down of specific elements and identification of process systems. Generally, it tells about all the missing information. Then, by using the latest software, Top Estimators’ expert estimator extracts the data from drawing plans, P&IDs, PFDs to quantity each component for labor and material takeoffs.
Top Estimators employs zip code based pricing for material and labor, using RSMeans and Top Estimators’ developed database compiled from world cost data, trade agencies, various vendors, architects, and engineers. All the factors like location, logistics, permits, equipment rentals, contingencies, and various indirect costs are also taken into consideration. At last, a cross-check is performed by the lead estimator to assure that the estimate fully complies with the project goals.
In addition to providing the most accurate and reliable cost estimates, Top Estimators have developed strategic estimation systems to ensure the project runs smoothly within budget and time constraints. This covers the estimation reports for project controls, procurement, contracts, and construction which gets updated throughout the life cycle of the project. Top Estimators’ deliverables include detailed EXCEL spreadsheets in MasterFormat or UniFormat containing material and labor takeoffs along with man-hours. The template can be customized as per the client’s needs.
