Electrical Estimating Services

Estimating electrical wiring and electrical fixtures is a major part of MEP takeoff and estimating. Electrical estimating is not limited to a small range of residential or commercial projects, it is one of the most important trade in all types of construction. Whether it is a small single family house or a massive power plant, electrical work is essential to complete the job. Bidwin Solutions possess a professional team of electrical estimators who are experienced enough to produce a well-organized and accurate estimate. 

Electrical estimating include a list of wirings to be used in the project. The estimator should keep in mind, the thickness of wires, type of insulation to be used and length of the specific wirings which eventually help the contractor to prepare a perfect bid price and win the job with good profit margins. The second thing to be calculated is electrical fixtures. It includes all light fixtures and electrical related equipment shown in electrical drawings set. The estimators at Bidwin Solutions calculate the counts of electrical fixtures and note down the full description of each and every fixture for the sake of accuracy.

In electrical estimating, accuracy is the key to win the job and maximize the profit. For example, drawings show a LED pendant light at 10 locations in the drawings. This is the responsibility of the estimator to find the wattage of the light fixture and mention it in the description to calculate perfect pricing. In some cases, the information about wattage is missing from the plans, in this case, the estimator make a suitable assumption and mention it on the final spreadsheet.

Process of Electrical Estimating

While understanding the process of electrical construction takeoff and estimating, one should have a good deal of knowledge of how construction works. First of all, the contractor shares the project plans along with the scope of work with the estimator. The estimator goes through the plans and specifications and prepare an initial grasp on the type of the project. Secondly, he start working on the takeoff working on the electrical sheets using software like Bluebeam Revu and PlanSwift. Using these software, the estimator perform a detailed quantity takeoff by identifying, marking and calculating electrical wirings, conduits and fixtures.

After marking the quantities on electrical drawings, the estimator prepares an excel spreadsheet with all the quantities mentioned and broken down according to the floors. After preparing the spreadsheet, the estimator start pricing the individual line items. Pricing is the most tricky task in electrical estimating as the estimator has to keep a lot of factors in mind like labor prices, labor productivity, use of equipment, equipment rentals, permits, mobilization, possible delays, final clean up etc. Keeping all these details in mind, the estimator does a detailed broken down pricing. Finally, the estimator calculates the contingency, overhead and profit for the client which is mostly provided by the client.

It gives us a final sheet with a detailed breakdown of electrical components with overhead and profit mentioned at the bottom. Feel free to contact us to check a few samples of our recent work.
