10 Ways to Produce Faster & More Accurate Estimates for Smaller Plumbing & Piping Projects

May 12, 2020

As a construction professional, you know the importance of using the right tool for the job. You wouldn't use a hammer to install a sink, and you wouldn't use a screwdriver to solder copper pipe.

The right tool is obvious in these cases and in many aspects of the work you do. But when it comes to estimating, you may not be aware of all the tools available to you.

Manual takeoff is generally considered inefficient and difficult to maintain as your business grows. If you're estimating by hand, you've probably experienced the challenges of trying to produce estimates quickly and accurately, while also trying to keep track of them all. 

Without a more efficient way to manage this important part of your work, it can be much harder to take on more and bigger projects. And with MEP making up as much as 40% of the total cost of construction, even small mistakes can lead to unforeseen expenses and delays and throw your entire project off course.

Here are 10 ways busy mechanical contractors like you are producing estimates faster, more accurately, and with greater confidence.
