EXPERTISE IN CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATING
The Woolsey Company specializes in construction cost estimating at all phases of design and construction, working with owners, owner's representatives, architects, engineers and contractors.
TYPES OF ESTIMATES
Order of Magnitude & SF Estimates
These are early cost estimates and are generally based on historical costs. These types are applicable at the programming, pre design, and schematic phases of design.
More detailed than our conceptual cost estimate products, assemblies estimates are compiled when the project scoping is clear enough to identify particular assmeblies, i.e. "square foot of pavement", "cubic yards of excavation and fill", but is not defined well enough to compile a full unit cost estimate.
Unit Cost Estimates
Unit Cost estimates are very detailed. Each scope item within the project is scoped, itemized and priced and placed in the universal CSI MasterFormat. These estimates are applicable at the design development, construction documents, permit/bidding and construction administration phases of design.
