Estimator Jobs

Estimator jobs are vital within every construction firm. Estimators are essential for every type of construction project, with each project needing an accurate and comprehensive estimate of materials needed. Estimators work closely with engineer's and architect's blueprints to prepare a complete list of all job costs, including labour, material, equipment, and speciality items necessary to complete the project.

 Estimator Jobs: Main Responsibilities

The main duties carried out by Estimators involve the following;

  • Analysing blueprints, proposals and other construction related documents to gain understanding of projects
  • Gathering and analysing price data regarding the cost of labour, materials and subcontractors.
  • Detailing the estimated cost of a project to potential clients
  • Convert and present data in both numerical and visual form so that it’s simple for clients to understand

Estimator Jobs: Required Skills and Work Conditions

Estimator positions require knowledge of construction techniques and proper scheduling of purchases. Estimator candidates also require the ability to work accurately and quickly under pressure. Successful Estimators will have a strong grasp of mathematics and must be computer literate. Estimators work is generally office based but some field coordination is often required, with the average working week varying depending on project requirements. Estimator Salaries range from £50,000-£70,000.
