We convey estimation with the quickest turnaround time. With our services, we assist in saving up to 60% of the cost. Among many other benefits, our solutions provide a clear set of mind to contractors for an accurate estimation of concrete usage. 

Consequently, it is easier to place orders to suppliers without worrying about material wastage.

Concrete Takeoffs and Estimating

The building foundation is laid on bricks, sand, and cement but to make it secure, firm, and structured, we use concrete in combination with rebar in a variety of forms. Here, Constructem purvey a seal of trust through its concrete takeoffs and estimation services for all sorts of construction projects from erecting the tallest empire to building a small three-family apartment or public building.

Constructem is fixing the right spots with its concrete estimating services for myriad construction projects and civil works where the precise assessment of concrete takeoffs is crucial and a prerequisite for submitting a proposal for a new project or tender. The concrete takeoff process might be a little challenging for big constructions. The presence of concrete pavements with different sizes and densities is more critical. In some circumstances, a substantial amount of cast-in-place concrete may be needed to form the building foundation. The concrete estimate for the structural walls, beams, columns, etc. is another example.

For all such construction tasks, our estimation services are helping your dream construction projects stand tall and strong with our concrete solution so that you never run out of money, concrete shortage, or wastage till the completion of the project.

Hire our estimation services today to earn more and more profit through wise investments in the future!

Why do Concrete Takeoffs call the Right Punch of Estimates?

Whether you’re putting together a fast quotation or submitting a formal bid, you need to nail your takeoff when you’re estimating your next concrete work. You will overestimate or underestimate the project if your material takeoff calculations and measurements are inaccurate. Your labor cost estimates will be directly impacted by incomplete or inaccurate concrete amounts, which will also influence your concrete cost estimations.

So, we are providing the right rebar and concrete estimating services to all construction projects ranging from small residential projects to extensive commercial projects. Done your concrete takeoffs estimation now to be tension free later.

What’s Included in Concrete Takeoffs Estimation?

For a concrete estimation job, one must take off not only the concrete but also the formwork, rebar, reinforced welded wire mesh, prestressed cables, anchor bolts, and vapor barriers to finish the project. Precisely, all the necessary concrete kinds would be added along with their compressive strength (measured in pounds per square inch) and the required quantity (usually computed in cubic yards).

Concrete Estimation Services We Offer

We offer comprehensive spreadsheets for estimating concrete, which contains cubic yards of concrete for various building projects. The amount of reinforcement, cement, sand, aggregate, etc. may be obtained if you want to delve into further depth. In addition to this, an excel file with a list of all building operations and the amounts of all materials is also given as the overall construction estimate.

Slabs, tie beams, concrete footers, and the total cost of constructing a driveway are all estimated as part of our concrete estimating services. Residential and commercial building projects are also eligible for this service. In addition, we offer an overall cost estimate for all building supplies, such as Visqueen, wire mesh, stirrup, dowels, anchors, and structural rebar

Save on Additional Expenses with Accurate Construction Estimation

We have been delivering quality concrete estimating services to concrete contractors and real estate property developers. Generally, the contractors who construct avenues find it difficult to estimate precisely for bidding proposals. We use software like Bluebeam, Planswift, Accubid and break down each length and width for every concrete block and takeoffs as per the clients’ requirements along with the labor cost.

Construct’em Estimation consultancy has professional concrete estimators, certified by the American Society of Professional Engineers, the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors, and the American Association of Cost Engineers that considers excavation, leveling, compaction of the soil transportation, equipment, and many other factors to offer quality services.

Concrete Takeoff Estimation

How we make the Road Map to Quality Estimating Takeoffs

Our experts when providing concrete estimating services always add up to our reputation with their unparalleled services. We are not a new estimating company. Our considerable experience in the field makes us prominent among our competitors. We never compromise the reliability of estimation services and cater to our clients with the best we can ever do. Our team at Constructem follows some simple tips and tactics to give you every possible concrete estimating solution you need.

i. Always Review the Plan and Specs

Everyone coming for estimation services requires a correct and reliable construction cost estimate that is only possible if the estimators are aware of the main plan and its specification thoroughly. Only by this approach, any skillful estimator goes for further steps in estimation jobs, including material measurements and takeoffs.
Verify that you are taking measurements from the appropriate location. Ask the architect to explain if you are unsure about where to obtain your measurements from. There may be instances where the project documentation directs you to avoid scaling the drawings or making use of the computed or stated measurements included in the requirements. This frequently happens with electronic documents since extending or decreasing the drawing's size before printing might lead to an erroneous scale that will negatively influence your bid.
For instance, the project documentation may not need a vapor barrier for the building's slab on grade, or the foundation walls may mention 1,000 psi concrete when, in reality, it should be 2x that.
Look for any discrepancies between the plan drawings and the specifications, any omissions of information, and anything else that seems odd as you go over the plans and specs. Once more, if something appears to be incorrect, speak with the architect or engineer to acquire the right information.

ii. Understand the Scope of Concrete Project

As soon as the client gives its project details, various general and sub-contractors indulge themselves in the bidding process. Here, a little information about the scope of the projects is mentioned in the project detail. This helps the subcontractors to submit the lowest bid possible.
Make sure the general contractor isn't subcontracting out the site preparation, for instance, if you're used to doing it yourself while conducting concrete construction. On the other hand, if the general contractor insists that you be in charge of site preparation and you are unable to accomplish it, you may need to hire a subcontractor to do that task.

iii. Check out the Scale of each Plan Sheet

Different details in the estimation takeoffs plan sheet include various scales that are not a big issue when dealing with digital estimating software that can automatically manage this thing. However, in the case of manual calculations, our estimators do consider the scales and promote quality concrete estimating services.

iv. Complete your Measurements

Our expert concrete estimating team then starts collecting measurements right away. Printing the necessary plan papers, together with the scale ruler, colored pencils, and highlighters, is what they efficiently do for manual takeoffs. Along with measuring the size and linear feet of the concrete placement, they don't forget to count any other things you may require.
Different advanced digital takeoff software permits the estimator to take hassle-free moves by just clicking, dragging, and pointing your mouse in a few clicks. To make this happen, our estimators have gained remarkable expertise in handling such software. They can easily obtain the length and breadth of linear feet depending on the materials you are taking off. Since you can adjust the height, or thickness, of a slab to get the amount of concrete needed, using takeoff software for your concrete works may save you a tonne of time when gathering your measurements and completing calculations.

v. Find your Materials

Finding the concrete quantity manually can be a little complex and tricky to handle the big numbers. However, Constructem concrete estimating services entirely depend on digital estimating software as they are more accurate and human error-free. By this means, we can even find the total cost of concrete in a construction project by providing the unit price. It's important to remember that pricing may vary from the estimated cost and the actual cost a little bit, as price volatility has recently been a worry.

vi. Double Check for Quality Assurance

It never hurts to have an extra pair of eyes to review or spot-check to make sure everything was measured accurately and all your calculations for material amounts and costs were done correctly. That’s what our estimators always do to avoid any miscalculation that may lead to false estimations. Even though it may take a little more time in the beginning, once you've included it in your workflow, it will significantly raise the caliber of your bid submission.

vii. Finalize your Concrete Takeoff estimation

We complete our estimation process in 24 to 48 hours and send you finalized accurate concrete takeoffs, without overestimating or underestimating your construction project.

Concrete Takeoff Estimation

Accurate Concrete Estimation in 4 Essential Steps

The usual foundation for concrete takeoffs is a combination of four things completed step by step: labor, materials, overhead, and profitability.

Overhead

The term ``overhead costs`` refers to a broad variety of charges that your company must incur to operate smoothly but which are unrelated to the project itself. Whether you have current projects to work on or not, you will still need to cover overhead expenses like insurance, office employees, vehicles, software, and rent.

Materials

Materials may include elements that are to be measured in terms of length, area, and volume, with concrete often serving as the primary component and being primarily measured by volume, typically in terms of cubic yards.

Labor

The cost of labor includes all of the time necessary to put up the forms, pour the concrete, and complete the project.

Profitability

To keep your business operational and profitable once you've calculated these factors, you must add a profit margin to the calculations.
