Why Do I Need Professional Takeoff Support?

The construction takeoff phase is important because it ensures profitability. One of the biggest challenges construction companies face when trying to develop takeoffs on their own is accuracy. If calculations are not precise, it can lead to costly errors and delays due to poor projections. Most, construction projects involve complex plans and blueprints that need to be properly interpreted to project variable project costs. Without accurate takeoff estimates, it can be difficult to land contracts and complete projects on budget.

Calculating Materials for Takeoffs

Having an accurate understanding of local and national material costs is essential during a construction takeoff. 

How it works

Not only do you need to understand what materials are required for the project, but also a real-time cost per unit estimate. Your account representative will provide detailed estimates for the materials needed based on their knowledge of your industry and your current local pricing and costs. Since we factor in market volatility you can be sure your estimates remain up-to-date and accurate. We understand that cost fluctuate even after you've started your project, so we adjust dynamically for unforeseen price increases. This provides a cushion for losses should material prices rise.

Construction Labor Cost

Calculating Labor for Takeoffs

Labor costs are also an integral part of the takeoff phase of a project. Labor costs for general contractors can account for up to 40% of a project's total cost, so it is important to get them accurately estimated in order to ensure profitability.

How it works

 Inaccurate estimates can cause delays and lead to increased construction costs. It is important that local labor costs are factored in conjunction with materials prices because inaccurate labor estimates can lead to ordering the wrong materials or over ordering.

Accurate labor cost calculations allows contractors to plan their scheduling more accurately and efficiently, as well as determine the right number of workers needed onsite at any given time. It's also key to avoid unexpected costs because of poor planning or underestimating billable labor hours.

How It Works


Review the Project Plans 

Takeoff services begin by having your dedicated support representative review your project documents. Once everything is verified, your representative will oversee the estimation process which allows us to visualize the project and determine what materials should be used and in what quantities.

At this stage, digital takeoff solution requires scanned copies that can be uploaded into the software.


Measure the Various Components of the Project 

Estimators measure-out the project to calculate materials needed. Again, manual processes will require taking physical measurements whereas digital takeoff tools generate these measurements.


Determine the Costs 

In this step of the construction takeoff service, we figure out how much everything will cost. We need to know how much materials combined with labor will cost. We use our knowledge about construction materials and manually verify suppliers' prices.


Count and List the Materials Required  

Estimators use a combination of software and hands-on verification to count and list out all materials required for completion of the project based on the blueprint.

Software we use:

  • Bluebeam
  • Palnswift
Determine the Quantities

After listing out all items required along with respective measurements we then calculate necessary quantities needed for each material based on scale provided by design documents and industry knowledge on estimated material costs provided by suppliers or construction software databases containing up-to-date prices.


Create Final Bid

Once we have gathered all this information we are then able to create an accurate estimate and final bid that factors in both costs and markup resulting in an estimate that reflects our view of how much should be charged for your project. We then estimate competitors' bids to make sure your final bid is within reasonable market costs for the project to be completed.
