Design / Civil / Structural Cost Estimating

UDS will work with our professional design team to establish appropriate bid alternatives to maximize the design features included in each project while maintaining costs within the budget. UDS accounts for site development, utilities, structural systems, exterior envelope systems, finish systems, and equipment specialties.


We prefer to develop the project estimate in “Building Component Format,” i.e. foundations, structure, exterior walls, finish trades, etc., which facilitates making comparisons and developing alternative solutions.

This “monitorable” format provides a means of creating an audit trail from the initial estimate to the project’s completion.
