Estimating Team

We work together to create conceptual estimates, bid and award subcontracts, and monitor the project finances throughout the construction process. By integrating our client’s list of preferred subcontractors and our list of 500+ approved subcontractors, we establish and maintain the project bidders list, which includes 3-4 qualified subcontractors per trade. Our subcontractors are vetted based on quality workmanship, previous performance, a team-oriented approach, and proper insurance.
