Construction estimation is obviously a key element in the construction planning process. With so many things to monitor and consider, budgetary concerns should be addressed not just by the construction lead, but by a select team of individuals assigned specifically to do cost estimation.
There may come a time when your cost estimators are not available for whatever reason. If this happens, will your estimations be halted?
Construction project managers want the answer to be “no”. Unfortunately, if estimators suddenly become unavailable in the middle of the estimating process, it often prompts project leads to:
Rushing to get the estimates done even without the original estimators could lead to construction delays, increases in expenditure, decreased accuracy in the reports, loss of customer confidence, and a lot of confusion.
The best way to ensure that the estimations continue without a hitch is to use a construction estimator software. Desktop applications such as ProEst allow several users to access a single system of cost data, so that changes are transparent and everything is set according to a predetermined estimation structure. Even if your assigned estimators are unavailable at the moment, you can rely on construction biding software to proceed with your estimations without a hiccup.
