Thad Berkes Has Joined Design Collaborative as Chief Estimator!
Berkes brings 14 years of industry experience to the firm, having worked ten years as an estimator and senior planner for a general contractor, and four years as a land surveyor.
Berkes is the first to hold an estimator position with Design Collaborative. In this role, he will identify labor, material, and time requirements for our clients in order to give them the best possible project estimate. He will work across our workplace, higher education, and healthcare studios. His years of experience will help the firm design the best solution while meeting the budget of our clients.
“I’m thrilled to be a contributor to an organization that takes the lead in innovation by combining conventional 2D estimating with 3D modeling and real-time scheduling for a 5D estimating capability,” said Berkes.
“We are excited to have Thad join our team,” said Principal and President Pat Pasterick. “His experience and expertise will strengthen the quality and credibility of our cost estimating. This means improved design decision-making and cost control for our clients.”
Welcome to the team, Thad!
