A part of KDB’s pre-construction design build effort is providing our clients with timely and accurate cost models throughout the entire DB process. Working with developers, construction management, architects, engineering consultants, and others, KDB engineers and estimators provide innovative ideas along with cost models to assist the developer in developing and maintaining budgets.
Whether provided with a conceptual project in its earliest stages, or with a partial basis of design, our experienced design build estimators in conjunction with our professional engineers utilize the latest software and estimating systems to assist the team in developing cost.
Our preconstruction team can also provide peer review services and design assist evaluation of means and methods to produce a path to the budget goals on many projects. Whether this is derivative of a plans and specifications bid process or at any level of the design development process our team of experienced estimators and preconstruction leaders will evaluate cost effective materials, equipment alternatives as well as perform a constructability review including prefabrication methods.
KDB also pursues the full range of fully designed projects. Our “Plans and Specs” team pursues a targeted variety of healthcare, data center, education and Federal and commercial construction projects best suited to our talent and capabilities.
A team developed material standard evaluates best value for materials including reliability, serviceability, safety, durability and cost to provide affordable quality to the project.
KDB specifically utilizes the “Trimble AutoBid” estimating software in conjunction with the “CINX” pricing update service. With these tools, KDB estimators provide our clients with the most updated and accurate industry pricing available.
