Builders
We know that it is more important to spend time finding more work than it is costing once a job has been secured, but both are of course necessary. With Build Estimating, we provide an affordable service, with a team of professional estimators who will work out all your costs and break them down for you, so you can focus on more important matters. You’ll also be able to work out your own profit margins, and a reliable, professional quote to your prospective client will go a long way to ensuring that they stay with you as their preferred choice. We will even put your logo on your estimate if you supply it along with the plans.

Architects
Going out to tender is a stressful time, and so many projects end up being scaled back in terms of scope and resources. This can affect the quality and functionality of the build, but also damage customer opinion, making it more difficult to sustain word of mouth business in the future. At Build Estimating, we can use the budget and scope information to provide costing that meets these needs, so you won’t need to waste your valuable time redesigning or negotiating with frustrated colleagues and customers.

Self Build
The vast majority of developments exceed budget, and self builds are the most affected by this. It is difficult for a non-professional to remember to take everything in to consideration, and missed or hidden costs are the main factor in causing budget problems which can lead to the failure of projects. Getting an accurate cost estimation is extremely important not just for your own peace of mind, but for the bank if there is a mortgage involved. We take away that stress at Build Estimating with a reliable, quick and affordable cost break down that you can present directly to your bank. If you’re planning an extension or conversion, we can also price these up as smaller jobs, so the turnaround time will be quicker, making your decision and planning much easier.

The Details
For smaller jobs, we will respond with your estimate in 48-72 hours. For larger jobs, this may take 5-7 days as the estimate will involve many more individual materials.Your estimate pack will be presented as a detailed breakdown of all costs, including labour andmaterialsschedules. For all estimates we use the specs from your plans or tender document to ensure accurate pricing, and will even factor in your standard job mark-up. Our years of experience mean that we leave no stone unturned, so that you have a complete rundown of all costs plus an idea of what to quote your client.
