Building estimating services in Staffordshire including

Stoke-on-Trent

In this climate of exceptionally competitive tendering, contractors are obviously at risk if their tender is too low but overpricing may result in the loss of a contract.

 

Malcolm Sales has the expertise to provide accurate building estimates that are genuine, realistic and take into account the individual contractor's required profit margins.

 

We generally fill the gap in the small contractor's organisation that have limited staff and are unable to devote the time and effort into building estimating to provide accurate estimates.

 

 

 

How we work

Our estimates are prepared with the use of computers, and material costs are generally updated with every estimate prepared.

 

Having had over 30 years experience in preparing contractors estimates, we have tailored our estimating to suit contractor's needs and finances.

Pricing Structure

 

As an approximate guide, our maxiumum for the preparation of estimates for building and contracting works (Labour, Plant & Materials) prepared from a plan and simple specification supplied, and based on the total of the estimate, excluding any Provisional Sums or site visit, works out as follows:

 

                             Estimate Total              Approximate Fee

                                    £5,000                                £80

                                   £10,000                              £110

                                   £20,000                              £155

                                   £40,000                              £185

                                  £100,000                             £385

                                  £250,000                             £710

                                  £750,000                           £1,785

 

Where there is a degree of repetition, housing schemes etc., or where the scheme is basic, factory units etc., then our charges are much less than those listed above. More complex specifications can cost more, and if the specification has to be returned with each individual item priced, then this obviously takes more time to prepare and so costs more. But from our experience, the basic estimate as indicated above is all that is required in most cases at the tender stage. The only additional charges made are for site visits as required.

 

Our estimates are prepared with the use of computers, and material costs are generally updated with every estimate prepared.
