Estimating & Estimate Review Services
Accurate estimating begins with the understanding that every aspect of a project has a cost associated with it. That's why estimating involves listening to you, the client, to understand your project goals, predicting costs by understanding market conditions, using supplier and subcontractor relationships for pricing and constructability, capturing quantities accurately and communicating this information in a timely and meaningful way to the project team.
Specification and drawing review
One goal of a specification and drawing review is to prevent conflicts among documents – that is, conflicts between drawings and specifications, between drawings or between spec sections. When conflicts are minimized, the result is fewer RFIs, fewer field design changes, a smaller number of change orders and, hopefully, no disputes, claims or legal action. But beyond this, it should also result higher quality bids, minimal delays, a greater understanding of the projectgoals, a smoother construction process, construction done more quickly, and less administrative costs
over the course of the project for all parties.
subcontract and contract preparation
Starting projects with excellent subcontractors and detailed subcontracts will help you make more money, finish faster and reduce field issues. However, it’s easy to gloss over proposals and hire subcontractors you like or know without performing a scope review or cost-estimating analysis. When this happens, your team will encounter disputes, change order requests, late schedules and holes in the budget. It takes only a few extra steps to make the correct choices and Inside Track Services can take those steps to ensure you have a tight and accurate subcontract prepared.
