Estimating – SD (Schematic Design), DD (Design Development), CD (Construction Document)
Before a project begins, having a clear idea of all possible concerns, costs, and factors is vital for the end result to come to fruition. A well thought out plan will make for a more successful outcome. Throughout each phase of the estimating process, FitzGerald and Sons Plumbing Company gives an experienced and thorough perspective. With over 50 years of combined experience with estimating, we have worked with a wide variety of project types, including commercial, healthcare, education, government, industrial and religious structures. Our insight can “fill in the blanks” so an owner can have an accurate picture of the budget from start to finish.
We will be with you through every phase
Schematic Design Phase:
We call this “the idea on a napkin” phase because it is the initial dream with few details worked out. By the end of this phase, square footage for the project and the unit price could be established.
Design Development Phase:
We make sure all aspects of the schematic will function as needed.
We zero in on budget for the project. Through our years of experience, we have significant data which can help us guide you away from high cost decisions which could derail your intended budget.
We ensure all building codes can be followed once the plan is executed.
We work tirelessly with the designer to make any modifications or changes needed to guarantee the plumbing is what you want.
We contribute meaningful cost saving suggestions and solutions to the designer and owner at this point.
Construction Document Phase:
We provide accurate quotes on needed materials for the project.
We are responsive to all questions or concerns of the designer or client.
We offer further suggestions which could make the project more economical and efficient.
