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.

  • People make the company.  The folks at KDW are talented, professional, friendly, and second to none.  In spite of the full book of business they keep, I never once felt like my calls were ignored, rushed, or unimportant.  Architects, project managers, superintendents.....they were all top-notch.  Our design/build experience with KDW exceeded all our expectations.

    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."

    Working with KDW to build our state of the art High Bay/Heavy Lift Fabrication Shop was nothing short of pleasurable and professional.  Their knowledge of construction techniques is amazing and every sub-contractor that was used did impeccable work. We could not have chosen a more competent General Contractor on our million dollar expansion project.

    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.
