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.

    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.

    The work and craftsmanship executed by the KDW team is truly inspiring and remarkable.They have a way of making what seems nearly impossible, possible and turning your dream into a reality. Their ability to adapt and meet strict deadlines will astonish you. They were an integral part to the true success of our construction phase and allowed us to become the Premier Water Park in Austin.

    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.

    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.
