From conceptual budgeting to detailed estimating and value engineering, our experienced staff here at Dollar are ready to serve & tailor our estimates to the client's preconstruction needs:
As a service to many of our clients, Dollar's preconstruction team gets involved in the early "schematic" stages of document design, and provides estimating services throughout their development as an effort to help our clients insure their project's design remains within the constraints of their budget.
Dollar utilizes both OST "On-Screen" and Trimble Tekla's "3-D Construction Modeling" programs, which allow us to perform quick and accurate quantity take-off and prepare / update estimates for our clients. Our ability to overlay electronic documents helps quickly identify changes in updated documents, and our 3-D modeling capability allows us to create a present a visual model of the scope.
Our experience and expertise in the various aspects of concrete construction allows us the opportunity to advise the client with regard to maximizing efficiency of detail with regard to constructability, cost and schedule.
Our staff can provide task durations and preliminary schedules for the scope of our work, so to assist the client in creating accurate and realistic construction schedules.
Dollar's estimators provide extremely detailed bid proposals, clearly indicating specific scope inclusions, important bid clarifications, pricing breakdowns, and a list of any noted exclusions. Such detail eliminates last-minute questions as to exactly what scope is covered when our proposal is received on bid day.
Often we are asked to offer 'Value Engineering' ideas during the design-development stages of a project, in an effort to help a client reduce cost, without sacrificing quality, function ability, or safety of the structure. Depending on the specific projects and details, we can often provide suggestions to help reduce projected costs.
Dollar Concrete's field management and construction crews have the experience, skill & know-how to layout, prep, form and construct a wide variety of vertical & horizontal concrete systems. Communication and early planning with the client are key to eliminating field issues and improving upon the project schedule.
