Services

At The Logan Company, we collaborate with clients to develop customized estimates for construction projects—no matter where you are in the design process. From the preliminary design stage (even if it is scrawled on a napkin) to construction documents, we recognize the key to customer satisfaction is flexibility. See examples of our projects.

Preliminary Budget Estimate

The Design Process starts with a Preliminary Budget Estimate based upon available information. Our team of estimators gathers data from site visits, interviews User Groups (Architects, Engineers, Facility Managers), reviews initial drawings and examines historical cost information.

Schematic Design Estimate

Based on schematic documents, we prepare estimates using measurements and pricing of parametric quantities. We use printed drawings or electronic documents to produce material takeoff using On Screen Takeoff. The estimate will be prepared in systems or CSI format and can be used to verify the established budget and to identify areas that need adjustment to satisfy budgetary requirements.

Design Development Cost Estimate

The Logan Company's team of experienced estimators prepare estimates based upon the completed design development drawings and outline specifications. Whenever possible, your customized estimate is based upon detailed measurement pricing and includes provisions for reasonable allowances for the remainder of the work. We use printed drawings or electronic documents to produce material takeoff using On Screen Takeoff. Your estimate will be available in either systems or CSI format to allow comparison with previous estimates and the established budget.

Construction Documents Estimate

Based upon the working drawings and final specifications at the 100% completion stage, The Logan Company will prepare a final estimate. This estimate will be based on the measurement and pricing of quantities. The estimate can include detailed information on irregularities or areas of concern that would hinder the construction process. Your estimate will be prepared in trade (CSI) format for comparison with, and evaluation of, the bids received. This will also enable a comparison with previous estimates and with the established budget.
