Building Estimating Services Manchester


Getting it right matters. Each set of plans is pored over by one highly experienced estimator who sees the job through, asking questions along the way if required. And that takes time. But it’s worth it to have an accurate figure which protects your profit. And we’ll always quote the cost and the delivery date before you commit.


Our service represents excellent value based on the years of building expertise we offer and the quality of the estimating software we use (the best in the business). Your customers will be delighted with the professional quote, detail, accuracy, and correct spelling (!) It pays off, to up your win rate


Our estimators will read everything you provide and double-check any details with you that aren’t clear from the architect’s notes. This quality and eye for detail are near on impossible from those 24-hour services where all you’ll get are a list of assumptions or exclusions and the need for YOU to scrutinise the estimate.


We’re flexible when it comes to materials prices. We’re not tied to one single Builders Merchants. That would be limiting, wouldn’t it? Our estimates are produced using local merchants prices in close proximity to the scheme – and you can specify your own prices for labour and materials if you prefer.
