Commercial Estimating

Commercial estimating is the calculation of construction cost of large buildings which can be further divided into small, medium, and large-scale projects. These can be any project from small offices to high-rise buildings or dams. 

Bidding Professionals has the expertise to do all commercial estimating projects from small office spaces to high-rise buildings.

Small-scale projects –  the upgradation of the interior design, small offices, etc.

Medium-scale projects – remodeling or expanding a building

Large-scale –  high-rise buildings, dams, and large warehouses.

Accurate Commercial Construction Cost Estimating

We provide accurate construction cost estimating for commercial projects to our clients. The process is simple. The client sends us the project plans and we provide free consultation as well as a quote to do the project according to the given scope. Once we have an agreement, we charge 50% of the fee initially and start the project.

The first part of the estimating process is to properly review the project plans and determine whether the estimate in question is a preliminary estimate or a detailed estimate. The commercial building cost estimators next mark the blueprints on Bluebeam Revu, a software that is used to determine the quantity takeoffs. The third phase is cost estimating, where we use RSMeans. It is used by commercial estimators to obtain prices for labor and materials, as well as labor productivity.

Once a thorough cost estimate is completed, everything is broken down to show the client every minor detail. In the commercial building cost estimating, we calculate estimates for the foundation/concrete, steel, Roofing, Drywall, and MEP. The final document contains the entire material takeoff as well as material and labor prices and is provided to the client in a well-organized and self-designed format.

Experienced Based Commercial Estimating

Our experience makes us the best at commercial estimating than the usual estimator. Commercial estimators view the commercial estimation with an eagle eye covering each and every aspect of commercial construction and performing quantity takeoffs and cost estimating accordingly. 

At Bidding Professionals, our commercial estimators have more than 10 years of experience working on high-rise buildings and warehouses performing highly accurate quantity takeoffs and cost estimating making them unique in the preconstruction services industry.

Average Commercial Building Cost Estimates Per Square Foot

Commercial building estimate per square foot depends on a few factors:

  • Location of the project
  • The complexity of the project
  • Size of the project
  • Current labor rates

According to the mentioned factors, the average commercial building cost /SF can vary. While performing cost estimating on a complete project covering all the trades, the average cost /SF for a commercial project would be $85-$135. Changing trends and a global pandemic have their effects on commercial building estimates.

At Bidding Professionals LLC, different software is used for different purposes:

Bluebeam Revu and Planswift are used for reading and marking the project plans.

RSMeans is used for cost analysis according to different states.

MS Excel is used to put the quantities and cost in and prepare the final file for the client.
