Must have experience preparing detailed conceptual cost estimates and conceptual cost studies from schematic or feasibility level documentation.
Ability to prepare detailed estimates and as the design evolves, develop variance summaries between estimates and value engineering studies throughout.
Ability to assemble a complete presentation-worthy estimate package that clearly communicates project cost.
Must be able to collaborate with project team to establish the necessary staffing and project requirements.
Must have knowledge and understanding of unit costs and the factors that affect construction cost.
Ability to prepare detailed instructions to bidders, trade specific clarifications and comprehensive bid packages.
Must have experience with the bidding process: soliciting bids, communicating with bidders, evaluating subcontractor proposals, using bid tally sheets, etc.
Make subcontractor award recommendations to the customer/owner and negotiate and finalize subcontracts with trade partners.
Must be prepared to participate and often lead the preparation and presentation of cost / budget information to the customer/owner.
Must have experience being a member of the team involved in request for proposal responses (RFP's) and the formal presentation for a project.
Able to engage and develop business with new and existing customers.
