Here’s the hard truth: Customers don’t really care about excuses. They want an accurate, transparent, and professional bid as fast as possible. Effective estimating requires a fine balance between hard facts and intuition.
As you combine the inputs of architects, manufacturers, engineers, and your own expertise, you are expected to synthesise a staggering amount of information into a viable, accurate project estimate and bid. This is no small task. Then, once the bid has been won, there is still plenty of room for errors and missed opportunities to creep in and erode profit margins.
