Owners want to know what they are getting and for how much. Contractors want to provide this information with the hopes of getting the contract for construction. The problem lies in the fact most think that Contractors punch a few numbers in the computer, and the total reveals itself. This is incorrect.
It takes the Contractor a lot of time to produce an exact quote for construction. After completing the quote, chances are that we find that the quote is higher than the owner wanted to spend.
What this means is:
- We still don’t have a budget that is acceptable,
- Both parties feel they have spent too much of their time with no positive results.
- Both partied are challenges as to where to go from here.
We have devised a system that allows both parties to arrive upon an estimated budget without cost to the owner. If the budget is too high, we now have factual tools to reduce it realistically.
