Our team can prepare the takeoffs and estimating for your project so you can have a valuable negotiating tool in budgeting and negotiation
We provide Quantity Takeoff Services to Our Clients in All CSI Divisions
We measure the quantities with the help of the latest digital software i.e Planswift which easily imports the drawing plans and allows the estimator to complete the takeoffs of quantities by point and click method. This automation rules out the chances of errors that otherwise occur if you takeoff manually. We accept drawing plans in the following formats:
.TIF, .TIFF, .PDF,.DXF,. DWF, .DWG, .PLN, .JPG, JPEG, .CPC, .OSX, .DJVU, .CAL
The estimate is delivered in EXCEL spreadsheets and contains item description, quantity, unit of measurement, and location. All line items in the material takeoff services can be organized either in CSI MasterFormat, Uniformat, by cost code, or construction phase. We can also utilize your customized format as per your requirements to deliver accurate material takeoff.
Our takeoffs also include labor cost if required by the client. It helps them in negotiating prices with their subcontractors. We take into account skilled and unskilled labor requirements, local wage variations, and deliver labor costs in most of the CSI trades.
We also calculate labor manhours for most of our clients along with material labor takeoff and pricing.
Our estimates contain marked-up plans which are color-coded with each description and detail properly referenced on the drawings in our quantity takeoff.
