Success

Construction Cost Estimation Services are performed by our in-house engineers/architects and/or our outside consultants.

We use M-II and computerized cost estimating with MCACES, R.S. Means. Our servers and workstations are supported with various utility and productivity software packages, which include the following for quick turnaround of technically accurate and complete construction documents:

Use of MS Project, Primavera and Prolog Software is for communication and project tracking.

Engineering Analysis Software - Members of our team are well experienced in the evaluation of building systems using life cycle cost (BLCC) analysis procedures. The studies and investigations we perform typically require life cycle costing and our combination of practical engineering expertise with advanced procedures for evaluating effectiveness of building systems and components enables us to develop highly cost-effective models.  Our experience includes the use of ASEAM, AXCESS, TRACE and Carrier’s E-20 software.  We understand the capabilities and limitations of each model and recognize when computer simulation is advantageous.

Value Engineering starts at the conceptual design stage to determine the most realistic and economic approach is taken before design time is wasted.
