Estimating

K M M CONSULTANTS recognizes the importance of having accurate cost estimates before a shovel even goes in the ground. Accurate estimates arc needed for budgeting, to verify or modify design decisions at the various stages of the project development, and to analyze the accuracy and fairness of contractor bid prices.

K M M CONSULTANTS prepares estimates at the various stages of project development, utilizing a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) to code all our estimate items. The WBS allows us to quickly sort and summarize the cost information according to our clients’ needs. We are able to achieve a level of project-specific accuracy by maintaining and updating our own database of construction costs, as well as using the industry’s latest estimating software.

An important part of each of our estimates is a quality control review of the documents. To further refine and obtain true construction marketplace estimates, K M M CONSULTANTS  will review the drawings with the eye of a contractor: Arc there discrepancies between drawings? Was anything forgotten or left out? What sort of constructability issues can the contractor expect? By providing another set of eyes”, we assist the architect in producing a clear and understandable set of documents. It is considerably easier and less costly to make a clarification to the drawings during the design phase rather than face a change during actual construction.
