Construction estimating has always been part art, part math, and part experience. Whether you’re installing a new pipeline or building a new highway, construction estimators have the potential to earn or lose your construction company millions. Move too slow and they don’t get enough bids in. Move too fast and details get missed that will make a construction project a loser no matter how efficient your effort.


The answer is now available with new construction estimating software packages hitting the market. The best solutions are targeted to your business and built by former construction estimators or foremen. Make sure that your estimating software is designed with your business in mind, and reap the rewards of faster and more consistent estimating.
