Benchmarking for Estimators: A Practical Perspective on Programs

Posted by Terry Morrison on Apr 17, 2018 11:24:00 AM

Programs pose a unique challenge for estimators hoping to capitalize on project history. Projects constructed as part of a group or program are often executed in fundamentally different ways than their stand-alone counterparts, which offers economies and efficiencies that do not exist for stand-alone projects.

When Estimating Worlds Collide… In a Good Way

Posted by Tony Colburn on Apr 25, 2017 11:17:47 AM

The owner develops an estimate. The engineer develops an estimate. While both are right, they’re rarely close and often worlds apart.

They Never Forget the First Number

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Apr 4, 2017 11:17:00 AM

Let’s face it. We are all biased. Bias stems from our past and our current environment. It influences our future. Bias shapes the way we feel, the way we think, and our behavior. It drives our decision-making process more than we care to admit.

Project History Cheat Sheet

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Jan 17, 2017 11:49:00 AM

Everyone has individual cheat sheets. They’re usually  Microsoft Excel workbooks that  are updated  every so often . Estimators create cheat sheets because either  there isn’t  a central database,  or there isn’t  one that they trust . In this case, I’m  referring to a cheat sheet of historical project costs.

2D + 3D + Sage Estimating = 5D BIM

Posted by Sage Estimating on Sep 27, 2016 10:10:00 AM

We've all been waiting for an intuitive solution that complements VDC teams and estimators rather than forcing a process to fit technology. After the success of eTakeoff's Bridge and proving that a system can learn from mapping efforts between a digital plan and Sage Estimating, the promise of Bridge and Navisworks is holding true. It looks like Autodesk QTO users have something to cheer about.
