Cost Estimating

Having a cost estimator plugged in on the front end of your project, and at each step throughout the design process, is key to keeping your project costs in line and avoiding any surprises like costly redesigns and change orders.

Design Collaborative offers in-house cost estimating, developing budgets that average within -1% to +2% of bid value. This is especially important in an economy with rapidly changing material costs and delivery times. Our chief estimator works with real-time market data and leads our project management team to ask the right questions, guide the best solutions, and provide clear direction to contractors and material suppliers during the bidding process. This minimizes change orders in the field, giving you peace of mind that your budget is reliable and achievable.
