Construction Cost Estimates and Take Offs
ADD MORE provides clients with take-offs, estimates, direct communication, and scalability for architectural and interior fit-out projects in the construction industry.
- Preliminary Estimate
Preliminary Estimates are also called ballpark estimates. Such an estimate gives a rough approximation of how much a project will cost.
Preliminary estimates are usually made at the very beginning of the project when there’s a limited source of information available.
- Detailed Estimate
A preliminary estimate progresses into a detailed estimate. It’s usually available when the project’s scope is known and more information is made available to the outsourcing team.
Detailed estimates provide all-inclusive information on the costs and quantities of almost all the items needed to complete the project. The price of each item is considered to arrive at the final cost of the entire project.
Contractors use detailed estimates as their budget estimates. This allows them to know how much cash flow is needed to proceed with the project and whether additional financing is needed or not.
- Quantity Estimate
Quantity estimates are central to every project. Apart from the list of items needed for the project, a list of quantities is crucial for a project’s completion.
These estimates evaluate the quantities of each item that the contractor will need in the project.
- Bid Estimate
Bid estimates are submitted to clients in the hope of winning a project. Bid estimate calculates the costs, quantities, overheads at a price that’ll hopefully outbid other competitors.
