Estimating

We rely upon a state-of-the-art estimating system for nearly all of our projects, enabling us to provide responsive, accurate estimates for our clients.

This system consists of:

  • A conceptual estimating tool, which aggregates historical material costs and labor productivity to quickly budget projects from their earliest stages.
  • A quantitative take-off estimating system, with a database of over 800,000 items that provide a high-level of accuracy for all types of mechanical systems and materials.
  • A 3D shop drawing system which provides detailed real-time estimates for finalized systems.

Each level of estimating is carried out by our seasoned project executives. Using metrics from prior projects, UMC can accurately predict specific labor and material quantities for each area of the building. These details, scope and cost breakdowns aid in staying on schedule and under budget.
