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.

  • 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.

    When Goya realized the need for a large facility capable of heavy production, we knew KDW would be our designs/builder and Houston would be our home. This is our second project in 6 years with KDW and the Goya team considers the KDW team part of our extended family."

    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.

    KDW has worked with us on two of our facilities, and we have been more than pleased both times. Their expertise in building for companies in the manufacturing industry resulted in facilities that were optimized for our purposes, resulting in smart layouts and highly-efficient spaces. When it comes to customer service, KDW has been affordable, personable, and timely. We highly recommend KDW for your company’s design/building projects.
