Estimating projects “In House” can be

time-consuming and costly!

Our greatest challenge is to keep a project on budget while successfully combining the client’s needs with the site requirements and project conditions. With productivity as a basis, we apply current wage rates to a work crew sized for each task, determining actual costs. We then add material costs to arrive at realistic unit costs. Our services include the following:


Real Estimate Service provides cost estimates at all design stages from concept through final construction documents.


Our value engineering methodology achieves lower costs while increasing and enhancing the scope of design.


Real Estimate Service has extensive experience in providing change order analysis, estimating and negotiating for over a billion dollars worth of construction.


The Real Estimate Service team is able to analyze any alternatives in mechanical and electrical systems, as well as prepare cost analyses for many of the architectural materials.
A Bid analysis can be provided to understand and select the best bid or contractor for your project.


Constructability is a review of the drawings and specifications to ensure that systems and materials have not been chosen that would delay or cause the project extraordinary constraints.

When you hire a civil cost estimation service to handle your estimating needs, you’re leveraging professionals with decades of experience with cost databases and estimating tools.

      • Because estimates and take-offs are their day-to-day work, they effortlessly manage the headache of learning updates to pricing and software so you don’t have to.
      • Independent cost estimators are better than in-house cost estimators for assessing the cost of a project as they have an objective view of the cost of the proposed project.
      • Hiring an in-house estimating department can be too expensive to remain sustainable.

This high cost adds to your business’ overhead without bringing in any profit until the projects that are being estimated are won and completed at a good rate of profit.

Because of this, our cost estimating team and work products have withstood expert peer review in the courtroom and in reconciliations with some of the largest general contractors in the country.

By establishing a realistic expectation, our clients can sleep well knowing their decisions are made on well-grounded numbers. We perform estimates at every stage of construction, from the conceptual level to the full construction document level.
