COST ESTIMATING

Sherlock, Smith & Adams’ cost estimators have a reputation for developing thorough and accurate construction estimates. One of the reasons they are so successful is their early involvement in the process. Design concepts are developed around the budget to minimize “cost creep” as the details develop. Our cost estimators have expertise in industry standard software and DoD software to meet any format required. They stay current in changes in the economy and the industry to ensure accuracy in the estimates. Of course, as the level of design progresses, so does the level of detail in the estimate. Any concerns with the budget are identified throughout the process so that design decisions can be made if necessary to meet identified constraints. Our cost estimators are familiar with DoD programmatic requirements and monitor the costs so that if the estimate approaches any of the identified thresholds, appropriate actions can be taken to keep the project on track.
