Estimating Services

The success of a project often depends on the extent of scope definition prior to project approval. Major project decisions must be made early. This gives maximal opportunity to influence costs.

Forecasting the cost of facilities needed for an investment proposal:

  • Scope definition and feed┬ádesign
  • Estimate criteria and design
  • Bulk Quantity Takeoffs
  • Type 1, 2 and 3 Level estimates
  • Operating costs

The cost of installation, materials and labour cannot be established with certainty until a substantial amount of engineering work has been undertaken. This can rarely be justified before a decision to proceed is reached and furthermore cannot be completed until a significant commitment has been entered into.
