As a construction consulting firm, PCM provides construction cost estimates for Owners, Architects, Engineers, General Contractors, and Trade Contractors at all phases of design, from schematic documents through hard bids. Recognizing the importance of an accurate estimate, PCM meticulously quantifies the observable and factors in the unforeseen to ensure project costs are captured. Our quantity surveys are developed using OnCenter’s On-Screen Takeoff (OST). Our pricing is based on our proprietary database, based on subcontractor and vendor pricing we receive weekly and is supplemented by Timberline and RS Means. All estimates are thoroughly reviewed internally to ensure scope is captured and pricing is accurate.
PCM provides cost estimates for an entire project or a single division which includes Site, Structural, Architectural and MEP’s. Various estimate formats are utilized depending on the level of detail required or the Agency for which the estimate is being prepared. Estimates can be prepared using unit pricing, broken out by labor & material, separated by phases of work, or however, else a client requires.
