Real-Time Estimating

Manufacturing Plant Construction Cost Certainty

Leverage collaboration for your value.

Understand benefits and costs early in your project—you deserve the opportunity to make decisions on the budget allocation of your manufacturing facility project.

By tracking what is changing, how it is changing, and whether those changes were intentional, real-time estimating keeps manufacturing facility projects on track and owners informed at a deep level.

Our estimating team works closely with the engineering team throughout the engineering process to keep the project owner in the loop. With updates as often as every week, estimators compare one 3D model to the next, then quantify and identify the value associated with changes between them.

Our clients typically gain five percent more value because of the insight our team brings to the table.

We track and monitor all developments

Throughout the engineering process, our estimators work hand-in-hand with the engineering team to review updated 3D models as often as weekly. By comparing models against each other, quantifying changes, and applying value to them, project owners receive unmatched insight into the plans and gain the ability to provide a deeper level of direction in all aspects.

The benefits of double- and triple-checking

The sheer volume of moving parts within any manufacturing construction project, whether new build or renovation, makes it challenging for one team to understand every facet and impact of each decision. Our manufacturing plant construction cost estimators can check that information against the plans and then deliver updated, accurate information to the project owner.
