Conceptual Estimating

Accelerated & Accurate Estimates

Accelerated & Accurate Estimates

Producing a realistic cost analysis at the earliest stage of a project quickly determines if the budget is aligned. We eliminate wasted time and money over-designing a project through our accurate conceptual estimating.

KDW has a tried and true process to define project scope and estimate a reasonable cost for any facility with limited design:

  • Define owner program
  • Create conceptual layout and design
  • Cost control estimate
  • Repeat as necessary to ensure budget and scope best serve the clients requirements

    We use our design-build checklist, historical data and lessons learned from previous projects to streamline the process and reduce questions to the simplest degree. The design and the budget must be married in order to maximize value, and our conceptual estimating process creates that union quickly and efficiently.

  • We could not have picked a better partner, to help us in establishing a productive plant in SW Houston. KDW met with us several times, to develop an understanding of our needs. Once understood, they incorporated our proven program with their local knowledge of Municipality, available Materials, Sub Contractors, and other Project Management Guidance.

    In 2013 WIKA Process Solutions LP and GAYESCO INTERNATIONAL LCC started working with the KDW team to design & build our brand new manufacturing facility on a 13 acre lot in the Pasadena ship channel area. From start (concept & initial renderings) to finish (January 2015 moving in) the KDW team supported us in every step of the way.

    KDW built our new shop addition. They helped me with the Design and planning of the build. They did a wonderful job from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend KDW and Rolf for any construction needs. They are a top notch company and I am proud to tell people who built our building and very proud of our new shop.

    JDR recently partnered with KDW on a build to suit lease for a purpose designed facility to support the growing needs of our expanding business. We could not have been more pleased with the support from their team and the seamless process from the front-end conceptualization phase to the final walkthrough. The integrated model KDW utilizes ensured that the end result met our business needs in line with the agreed budget. I would recommend KDW to anyone considering a new facility project due to their straightforward approach and outstanding level of service.
