Estimating services at R&D Air Supply comprise much more than the primary responsibilities of individual quantity take-offs and pricing of mechanical services for all types of projects. Our extensive base of trade subcontractors within the sheetmetal, electrical, plumbing and control service industries in combination with recognised suppliers and manufacturers of high quality HVAC plant and equipment ensures that R&D Air Supply can offer a particularly competitive pricing structure.

Our estimating services at R&D Air Supply, specifically for design and construct type projects affords many other valuable pre-construction services including: defining scopes of work; assessing alternative designs, materials, systems and methods; and managing the intent of the design team and aligning these with the requirements of end users.

With our internal resources R&D Air Supply can offer other estimating and pre-construction services providing added value to the project and include:

  1. Working in with project planners and quantity surveyors to estimate the amount and type of material required to deliver the project to specifications;
  2. Preparation of early budget proposals on prospective projects based on concept documents and scope of works;
  3. Production of progress estimates at design milestones or certain stages through the course of a project;
  4. Evaluation of alternative systems, plant and equipment material and associated cost savings;
  5. Review document progress and coordination at design milestones or certain stages through the course of a project;
  6. Working with the project programmers to develop preliminary construction programmes and design milestones;
  7. Efficiently hand off the estimates for a project to the project manager and superintendent prior to the commencement of construction.

The rapidly increasing costs in the construction and building services industries, lack of resources and poor bidder interest commonly result in inaccurate and more often than not costly pricing. At R&D Air Supply we pride ourselves on building and maintaining subcontractor and client relationships by adapting these expectations and thus providing value to our clients and differentiating ourselves from our competition.
