Metals Estimating Services – Structural Steel Cost Estimation

The estimation service ensures that the project runs on the minimum costs, reduced storage space at the site location, and stay with your time schedule. We calculate and offer accurate quotes to our clients which include materials, accessories and erection costs.

Keep in mind that prices offered by a supplier or manufacturer are quoted as of the time of delivery, which means future deliveries are subject to the same laws of fluidity in pricing. Incorporating an escalation clause into a contract to deal with unexpected rising material costs may help absorb any increases. The framing system of a building typically contributes a minimum of 10 percent to 12 percent, sometimes more, of the total building cost.

You can put certain things on autopilot. Staying efficient and productive is the key to coming in under budget. We’ll take care of the time-consuming task and perform your material take off with pleasure. Utilize our services to get more bids out, reduce waste, save revenue, and master your time.

Structural Steel and Metal Prices vary widely, even just from day to day. Considering the fact that Major Construction Projects require several months or even years to complete, the risk of the budget and the entire project being thrown into a tailspin is large especially if the potential fluctuations across the proposed project’s timespan are not accounted for.

Many of the steel fabricators and manufacturers, even steel framing contractors have trouble reading the technical details from the plans and making accurate takeoffs with structural details due to less technical know-how. We specialize in providing a complete range of steel estimating and detailing services with the ability to handle complex structures.

Man Hours and Labor Costs
