UDS greatest strength is cost evaluation. Our cost estimating efforts begin with the Program Level estimates of the proposed work. These estimates serve as our "Cost Models" for the project and will be updated to reflect the additional information and details included on the Schematic, Design Development, and Construction Documents.
We work directly with contractor, subcontractors, and the Client throughout the design phase to ensure design components align with available funds. Our final cost estimate, prior to bidding, is used to evaluate the competitive bids received for the various elements of work. This continuous estimating process works to avoid possible bid day disappointment of high bid prices and insures that on bid day the project is within budget
