The Job

The Company

My client is a large national main contractor who specialise in large scale new build and design and build projects. They carry out a range of build types including RC Frame, Steel Frame, Timber Frame and Traditional Build.

The Role

My client, a longstanding main contractor is keen to appoint an Estimator to assist with the pricing on their new build and Design & Build projects. RC Frame, Steel Frame, Timber Frame and Traditional Build types are at the forefront of their pipeline, with projects ranging between £2m and £30M. As an Estimator, you will be responsible for the pricing of tenders via Bills of Quantities and Spec and Drawings.

As an Estimator, you will hold the responsibility of extracting the full client brief on receipt of the tender and will be able to price, hold tender adjudication meetings and be client facing in order to attend pre start meetings. Liaising with Engineers and Tender Planners is also a must for this role, to make sure that the clients are getting the full tender including risk assessments, design (for D&B) and initial project plans. You will understand that pricing as an Estimator can be challenging regardless of the value.

Qualifications & Experience

Other responsibilities will include carrying out site feasibility studies, taking necessary photographic evidence, looking at value engineering and organising internal estimating team.
