Cost Estimating

LINK Management understands the importance of cost estimating at the beginning of every project, regardless of its scope. Accurate estimates are crucial for the budgeting process, to confirm or revise design decisions at the various stages of the project development, and to analyze the accuracy and responsiveness of contractor bids.

LINK Management prepares estimates at the initial outset of the project and during stages of project development. We are able to achieve a level of project-specific accuracy by maintaining and updating our own knowledge base of construction costs, as well as continually monitoring these costs through various market changes.

LINK Management's Cost Estimating Services include:

• Preparation of schematic, conceptual and pre-bid estimates
• Value engineering cost estimates
• Bid packaging and phasing strategy
• Bid analysis and schedule of values review
• Pay request validation
• Change order estimates and verification
• Cost to complete
• Damage calculations for the preparation and/or analysis of claims
