Our Services Include:

Bid estimates

Bid estimates are documents that provide potential buyers with an overview of the estimated costs for a particular project. By offering professional cost estimating services, SMA MEP is able to provide accurate bid estimates and cost plans that ensure efficient and effective project management.

Design estimates

Design estimates can cover anything from budgeting, manpower needed material procurement, and the timeline given for fulfilment. SMA MEP Estimating Services specializes in design estimates for successful construction projects.

Budget estimates

Budget estimates are a critical component in cost estimating services. These estimates provide an accurate picture of the amount of money to be allocated for a project and help ensure its successful completion. They are usually created by accounting professionals who add up calculated costs, materials, and labor to arrive at an estimated figure that should reflect the actual costs of the project. Additionally, budget estimates help to identify potential overruns before they become an issue during implementation

Design build estimates

Design-build cost estimating is a method of modern project forecasting that combines both the design and construction process by having one source handle all facets from concept to completion. By carefully considering components, associated costs and any other expenses related to a project, this innovative approach helps creates tangible financial goals for an efficient and successful outcome. Design-build construction estimating services take into consideration industry knowledge, historical data and input from contractors, suppliers and other third parties. The final report is a well thought out strategy that includes material prices, labor rates and overhead costs to ensure each client gets unmatched quality results.

Preliminary estimates

Preliminary estimates are initial cost estimates that show the estimated costs of a project before committing to any contracts or agreements. SMA MEP estimating services allow business owners to explore different options and make decisions based on accurate cost estimations. Preliminary estimates in cost estimating services provide a detailed assessment of both the direct and indirect costs associated with a project and include areas such as long-term local labor costs, purchasing materials, permitting, and subcontracting work. This information is particularly important for construction professionals because accuracy in preliminary estimates can significantly affect the success of any project.

Change order estimates

Change order estimates are incredibly important in cost estimating services. They help to accurately assess and gauge the amount of overhead or extra time that may be spent on projects that may not have been indicated in earlier estimates. Change order estimates provide predictability for the client, and accuracy for the contractor, which is so important to delivering services efficiently and up to professional standards. It also creates an opportunity for collaboration between both parties, helping make sure that projects are delivered as expected, within timelines, and can reach desired objectives with greater ease. In summary, change order estimates are a very meaningful part of construction estimating services that should not be overlooked.

Value engineering estimates

Value engineering estimates are an important process utilized by cost estimators when determining the projected cost of a product or service. This valuable tool takes into account the quality and scope of the cost estimating project and compares it with other used techniques to determine if there is any potential for cost reduction. Through careful analysis, adjustments can be made that could lower costs without adversely affecting the outcome of the project.

Quantity takeoffs

Quantity takeoffs in cost estimating services are a process of estimating construction costs based on the physical elements being built. This includes sizing and evaluating items like materials, labor hours, and equipment needed to construct a project. In order to ensure the highest level of accuracy, SMA MEP estimating services review and verify quantity takeoffs by an experienced cost estimator certified in the latest technology used to complete them.

Independent estimates

Independent estimates in construction estimating services are assessments that allow customers to identify known costs associated with a specific project or venture. They are conducted by outside contractors and provide a second opinion to the customer’s internal estimates. Additionally, independent estimators can also review design options, manufacturing processes and logistics plans which help make sure the customer’s project is completed in the most efficient manner possible. By utilizing independent estimates in cost estimating services, SMA MEP ensures customers can be confident they remain on budget while avoiding any potential pitfalls along the way.

Bid documents review

Bid documents review in cost estimating services is a critical step when determining whether there is sufficient detail for an accurate bid. This review process can be incredibly helpful for those who are unfamiliar with the specifics of the project, as it allows them to better identify potential risks and accurately assess pricing. It can also provide additional insight that may influence decisions concerning cost allocation and subcontractor selection. With a well-executed bid documents review, SMA MEP estimating services more confidently proceed with their cost estimates, knowing they have taken into account all the necessary elements.

Bid Submission Assistance

Bid submission assistance in construction estimating services is a process designed to help contractors submit the most accurate and competitive bids possible. These services offer guidance in researching material costs, labor costs and any other factors involved in a bid. Assistance also includes breaking down complicated specifications into more manageable pieces and creating high-level estimates that can be adjusted within a certain range as needed. The ultimate goal of these services used by SMA MEP estimating services is to ensure that contractors are able to prepare timely and professional bids for various projects without making costly miscalculations or errors along the way.

Litigation claim support

Litigation claim support in SMA MEP estimating services is a specialized area of the construction consulting industry. Its primary purpose is to provide information to attorneys and their clients involved in litigation issues related to construction projects. Cost estimators work with legal professionals and owners to assist with the discovery process in cases involving claims for contractor defaults, alterations, delays and disruption. Litigation claim support in cost estimating services also involves uncovering elements that should have been included but weren’t – providing key pieces of evidence when an owner has suffered damages due to deficiencies on behalf of the contractor.

Expert witness

Expert witness in material takeoff services refers to a highly-specialized professional who provides reliable, objective, and authoritative overviews of economic damages and financial losses. Expert witnesses are usually individuals with extensive experience, expertise and qualifications in the field, who can analyze and assess complex issues to come up with a clear opinion on the extent of impairment or injury as well as the anticipated costs for recovery.

Cold eye reviews

Cold eye reviews in cost estimating services refer to a thorough, objective examination of existing estimates. This type of review is conducted from an external perspective and involves breaking down the cost elements that make up any given estimate so potential discrepancies can easily be identified. The goal of a cold eye review is to identify errors or areas of improvement before projects are approved for development. It also provides assurance that plans developed by an SMA MEP estimating services are necessary, realistic, and reflective of current market conditions.

Feasibility studies

Feasibility studies are a crucial part of construction estimating services, as they provide necessary information to determine whether or not a project is feasible within a given budget. These study findings include the evaluation of available resources, review of regulatory standards and industry best practices, assessing the economic viability of the proposed project, and identifying potential risks and opportunities for innovation. A thorough and detailed feasibility study provides valuable insight into every element associated with a cost estimate – from planning and design to implementation and maintenance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When producing material takeoffs for construction projects, it is important to understand what exactly is included. At SMA MEP estimates, our material takeoffs are very comprehensive and detailed. They include every necessary factor in a construction project including materials, labor, equipment use, as well as any special accessories that may be required.

Estimating and doing a takeoff for a construction project requires precision and accuracy. The very basics are the project drawings, blueprints, specifications and other documents that provide information on the materials needed and the dimensions of the job. Additional details such as labor costs, productivity rates, permits and fees should also be determined in order to get an accurate estimate.

Our average turnaround time is incredibly quick! We pride ourselves in our ability to respond to orders promptly; typically, customers can expect their order to be completed and arrive within a matter of days from the date they placed it.

Estimators are tasked with providing an accurate projection of the cost of a project, taking into consideration all factors that could affect the final costs. They look at an array of aspects, ranging from the materials used to labor and transportation costs. Estimators must also factor in any potential risks or delays that may arise during the project timeline, as well as consider any safety or environmental regulations that may apply.

Construction cost estimating is an essential part of any construction project and accurate estimates are a huge factor in being successful. Being able to budget properly is crucial and the impact inaccurate estimations can have on missing deadlines, going over budget and having unexpected costs can all be avoided when accuracy is taken into account.

Perhaps the most common mistake made during the cost estimation process in construction is overlooking certain components of a project. This can mean leaving out important items that may contribute to an increased total budget, such as materials and labor overages, unforeseen permitting costs, site prep or other fees.

The cost of construction can vary greatly depending on the type, size and location of a project. Home renovations, for example, can usually be completed far cheaper than building a high-rise office tower in an urban area. Things like labour costs or materials needed to complete a job will all play a role in determining the overall cost of any given construction project.
