Benchmark Estimating is specialist cost engineering consulting practice with vast experience of delivering a wide range of major construction projects, particularly in the infrastructure, utilities and civil engineering sectors.

Working with contractors, consultants, design companies and many other organisations, we follow at all times the five first principles that underpin everything we do. This approach equips us with a problem-solving way of thinking that has helped us to streamline estimating processes whilst improving their consistency and reliability.

Our first principles approach and its advantages

01

We have built our team on the fundamental belief that estimating expertise alone is not enough – it needs to be combined with in-depth construction knowledge.

02

This combination of skills means we can look beyond the numbers and take into account construction issues and tailor our estimates to the nuances of a project.

03

In working to this approach, we base estimates on work that’s particular to a project – far more accurate than relying on standard-rate data.

04

We also provide estimates to cover the lifecycle of a project, as the design goes from 50% to 80% to 100% – strategic, concept and detailed stages. Again, more accurate than estimates based on a standard rate.

05

Our estimating services include negotiating prices on behalf of the client, which we couldn’t do without an understanding of construction processes – another aspect of our activities that ensures the most accurate estimating.

A combination of estimating expertise and in-depth understanding of construction processes

We go beyond the figures. Our belief is that estimating expertise alone is never enough – it needs to be augmented with in-depth construction know-how for truly accurate estimating and scheduling.
