D & D Construction Solutions provides different types of estimates to our wide array of different clients. We use Sage 300 CRE to provide detailed estimates, budget estimates, rough order of magnitude budgets as well as conceptual estimates. We also provide quantity surveys (take-offs) to our clients who would rather price their own estimates.
Our pricing is generally based upon RS means databases, industry experience as well as input from local subcontractors and suppliers. Overhead and Profit are calculated on industry standards, however these markups can be tailored to our clients normal Overhead and Profit rates. We can also adjust such things as local taxes, bond rates, contingencies as well as other markups as directed.
ESTIMATING & BUDGETING
Before a project breaks ground there are many different processes that take place. This is what most of us in the industry call "Preconstruction". Preconstruction processes are site selection, design and engineering, constructability, contracting, procurement as well as other processes depending on the project type. This is a very important stage of the overall project. Planning the project before the project breaks ground prevents problems once the project is running that could cost delays and most of all lost profits.
D & D Construction Solutions can assist our clients with preconstruction by providing plan reviews for constructability, value engineering, contract reviews as well as procurement issues such as long-lead items that could affect the schedule and timing of the project.
Every project needs a way to get from the start of construction to final completion. Without a detailed schedule the best project can take a mis-guided path that puts both the time allowed and the budget at risk. Why risk losing time and money? The need for on-time deliveries and construction activities are guided by a good schedule.
D & D Construction Solutions provides our clients with a detailed construction schedule to maintain their time frame as well as budget to make their projects a success!
D & D Construction Solutions has a mixed and unique set of skills, experience, and knowledge to provide support on disputes that arise from construction projects since most projects tend to be one-off endeavors. We provide expert witness testimony and litigation support to our clients to accurately defend position in respect to the claims. Our clear, concise and objective research is a very cost efficient way to provide your legal team with the expertise that is required in resolving the issues that can come about even when the project is well managed.
