MEP Estimating also known as Mechanical Estimating primarily because of its major role in the sector, becomes one of the major concerns after grey structure is built in a bid of project. And providing a reliable estimation and takeoff service assistance for those who deal with it is amongst vitals. Although people who have done MEP estimation for years, it is noted that since the launch of recent advanced takeoff and estimation software, the most effective way to carry out MEP estimation has changed.
MEP estimation comprises of 3 underlying fields of work and since they can collectively be called out when dealing with projects their cost estimation is done at a same trading sheet. These 3 are Mechanical work, Electrical and Power related work, and Plumbing lines work.
Although this trade of work is called for all trades underlying, but the largest contributing costs are often for the mechanical work. The reason for it becomes the large HVAC systems deployment and other mechanical works. Labor costs are fairly the same but these materials have the highest ratio in this part.
Doing an effective MEP estimation is necessary for accurate overall cost estimation. HVAC quantity takeoff, plumbing, piping, material and labor estimating, for all residential and commercial or industry works can be done accurately and fast with 3D rendering and 2D rendering software which can help estimators rapidly catch errors. One such software is Viewpoint MEP Estimating. Others also are helping a lot of other Cost estimators such as Esticom, PlanSwift, ProEst and Square Takeoff.
