Services for Construction Cost Estimation at Nationwide Estimating

At Nationwide Estimating, we provide estimations on all the three essential functions of design, bidding, or control, generally needed in estimating your project costs.

  1. Design Estimates

This service is especially important for owners and designated design professionals, as the types of cost estimates run parallel with the planning and design process. For this category, we are in charge of:

1.1. Screening estimates

order of magnitude estimates, a prediction based on the capacity of the proposed project

1.2. Preliminary cost estimates

Made when conceptual design decisions made
1.3. Detailed estimates

definitive estimates, prepared after drawings completed

1.4. Engineer’s estimates

based on specifications and architectural plans


This type of service is addressed to contractors. Bid estimation submitted to the owner for either competitive bidding or negotiation will consist of a direct construction cost including field supervision, a markup to cover general overhead and profits. For this, we will follow a combination of the following approaches:

  • Subcontractor quotations
  • Quantity takeoffs
  • Construction procedures



Control estimates are used throughout a project to monitor costs. A control estimate establishes the budget estimate for financing, the budgeted cost before construction, and the estimated cost of completion during an ongoing project.
• Budget cost estimate for financing purposes.
• Budgeted cost after assigning to the contractor but before construction.
• Estimated cost of completion during ongoing construction.


For the building cost estimations, we consider all the different perspectives of institutional requirements. We can help you make estimates of the expected costs in various areas such as design development changes, schedule and material adjustments, site conditions that are different than those expected, additional permits imposed during construction, etc.
