Senior Electrical Operations/Project manager with extensive experience in industrial and government construction. Skilled in estimating, contract review, purchasing and overall site management. Excellent background in design, construction, scheduling, permitting and budgeting. Experienced in developing and implementing hard bid and design build programs for major organizations.

Our primary customers are the small to medium size contractor that may need help from time to time and does not have the work to keep a full time estimator employed.  We can get you back in the field with your crew, not behind a desk doing what you really may not want to do.  Our rate is lower than you can hire a foreman in most cases and you only pay when we work for you.  We usually can get a drawing taken off completely in 2 to 2 1/2 hours and this is only for the drawings with takeoff on them not for schedules or specs or details.

We also do change orders for contractors that need some extra help in this area because you just don’t seem to have the time to do it and the GC is saying it is going in as a “no change” unless you give them a price.  We will have it you immediately!

Other customers are General Contractors that want a check figure on their sub-contractor or need an estimate for a project that they don’t have a qualified sub to give them a price

We do layout for contractors that want to maximize their estimate by combining and selecting the best routes and saving your Foreman the time doing this and keep him with the crew maximizing production.  A small investment in this area can represent a huge profit at the end of the project and your customers will really appreciate these drawings when doing trouble shooting in the future.
