Estimating costs for steel framework is a complex undertaking. Niik Steel understands these issues by sifting through the layers and analyzing all aspects of your project's engineering, detailing, fabrication, erection, and safety requirements. To facilitate the decision-making and budget processes, we undertake a detailed review of all factors that may impact total cost, including structural components, connection details, site conditions, and discrete work elements.
Our knowledge and expertise in all facets of steel fabrication and erection enable us to accurately scope out timelines and costs based on your specific project requirements. We recognize the importance of good coordination and communication, detailed information, and accurate documentation.
The traditional method of estimating prevalent decades ago is becoming a dying art; it lacked efficiency and did not allow for fluid budget updates from design changes. The singular approach of pricing a project based on tonnage opens the door for challenges with accuracy. We believe that investing the time upfront pays dividends in the end. With Niik, we input a model to which we apply labour standards, followed by doing hard take-offs of literally every piece. The result is an estimate in which we have high confidence.
