Because we have the ability to self-perform across several trades, accurate estimating is a real advantage with Colantonio.
While we provide detailed estimates on all trades, we base our sitework and carpentry estimates on actual historical costs for sitework, concrete formwork and flatwork, drywall/metal stud, rough and finish carpentry, and any other carpentry-related items. Our estimates consider many factors that others may not, such as stockpiling, handling and disposal of materials, mobilizations, wage rates, etc., which reduces unanticipated costs down the road.
For sitework, Colantonio uses Insite Grading Software to understand the precise import/export requirements. We can then ensure that all appropriate investigation and testing work is done in advance and help the Design Team determine the most economical approach. Our estimators analyze the cost impacts that sitework bidders will identify and structure the bid requirements in the most cost-effective manner.
