"An Estimator is known in the industry as either an Estimator or Cost Planner, but whichever term is used they work out how much it costs to supply a building or services to a client.
They become involved in a project in its early stages, often whilst in competition with other companies. They can be the difference between a company winning and losing a project"
Basic day to day duties:
Liaise with the client and finding out what the client wants, managing their expectations.
Researching materials, equipment and labour costs, gathering quotes from sub contractors and suppliers, developing a genuine cost to be presented for tender.
