Estimator

Before laborers or equipment operators set foot on a project, there are often hundreds of hours into bidding and winning the opportunity to build the job. Whenever a project opportunity emerges, it’s the estimator’s responsibility to figure out how to build the job, calculate quantities and timelines, and ultimately assign a dollar figure for what it’ll take to do the job profitably, yet competitively. Too low and they jeopardize the project from the start, and too high the company won’t win any work.
