If you are an architect, you know how demanding and competitive the industry can be; you have to balance your creative vision with your client’s expectations, budget, and timelines, and then there are complex regulations, specifications, and contracts – not to mention the day-to-day running of your business.

With so many challenges and responsibilities, you may find it hard to focus on your core competencies and strengths as an architect. You may also struggle to differentiate yourself from the competition and persuade potential clients that you are the best choice for their project. That’s why you need a partner who can help you with the costing aspect of your projects, which is often the most tedious and complex part of the process

In this blog, we will explain how a building estimating specialist can help you stand out, attract more clients and scale your architectural business.


What are Build Estimating Services?

Construction estimating services is a professional service that provides fast, accurate, and affordable building estimating services for architects, builders, self-builders, homeowners, and anyone who needs a detailed and comprehensive cost breakdown for their project.

Build estimators provide you with a bill of quantities (BOQ), a schedule of works (SOW), or a detailed cost breakdown based on your drawings, specifications, and requirements for a range of building projects, big or small.

We can also advise you on the best materials, methods, and solutions for your project to help you optimise your design and budget.


We Can Also Help You Scale Your Architectural Business

Build Estimating Services can also help you scale your architectural business by providing you with several value-added advantages, such as:

More accurate and realistic tender bids: You can offer your clients more accurate and realistic bids that reflect their needs and expectations. This will help you win more contracts and build trust and loyalty with your clients. Our estimate pack will be presented as a detailed breakdown of all costs, including labour and materials schedules. We use the specs from your plans or tender document to ensure accurate pricing, and we will even factor in your standard job markup. Our years of experience mean that we leave no stone unturned so that you have a complete cost estimation of what to quote your client.
Saving you time and money: By outsourcing your estimating needs to build estimators, you can save yourself hours of tedious and complex calculations and focus on what you do best – construction design. You can also save money by avoiding costly errors, omissions, or miscalculations that could affect your profit margin or reputation.
Offer clients value-added services: Build estimators can help you offer more value to your clients by applying design optimisation and value engineering to your projects by providing accurate and reliable cost information and guidance. These methods can help you enhance the functionality, aesthetics, and sustainability of your projects while minimising costs, risks, and waste.
