Our estimating team analyzes project plans and specifications to prepare comprehensive and detailed estimates on projects for both residential and commercial. Communication between our estimators, sales team and the client based on objective estimating techniques and the experience gained from past projects is a key to the success of any project. Our sales team is at the front line of the process, working hand in hand with all departments. Preplanning is a key to cost and time savings, and addresses complex construction issues. We provide the input and insight necessary to provide value engineering recommendations that can potentially reduce costs and enhance a project’s value. SUI does not view value engineering as a process to eliminate scope, but rather as an opportunity to develop innovative approaches to achieve the design intent. We take pride in being efficient and accurate. Members of our estimating team have diverse experience backgrounds that allow for a well-rounded view of projects. We provide both straight take-off and conceptual estimating. We design custom computer-based programs, including daylight modeling, so our sales team can present a true representation of a project’s scope. Our budget pricing/proposals are never estimated on a per-square-foot basis.
