ABOUT US

I AM Builders is a National Construction Estimating Firm in the business of helping contractors win projects.

We estimate and takeoff your entire project for you based on local pricing.

Most contractors are so busy running their jobsites that they NEGLECT the estimating. You’re supervising jobs, making deliveries, going to jobsite meetings, and the only time to work on estimating is NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS.

It doesn’t have to be that way!

OUR TEAM

Daniel Quindemil is founder of I AM Builders. He is a Licensed General Contractor with over 10 years of experience in the design and construction field.

He started I AM Builders in 2015 with a vision of changing the construction industry. When he was in the field he realized contractors were busy and didn’t have time to focus on the important parts of their business like estimating and sales, so he launched I AM Builders to help busy contractors.

He has a Bachelor Degree in Architecture, LEED Certified, a member of the American Society of Professional Estimators, and has been part of some notable projects for Bacardi, University of Miami, Private Developers, and most recently the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

Daniel manages our team which includes professional engineers, architects, and civil engineers. Everyone at I AM Builders has a background in construction and has actual field experience and professional training.

We use a Double Verification system where our Estimators perform the estimates and our Senior team which reviews and finalizes. This ensures you get a minimum of two sets of eyes on your project and two opinions regarding pricing and takeoffs.

That’s why were are also able to work with conceptual and projects in the drawings phase because we have so many projects to reference.

Because of our experience, I AM Builders is able to estimate all types of projects from private owners and developers to US Government Federal and State projects.

We’ve worked on countless Government projects US-wide and even Worldwide. Most recently we’ve worked on the the following projects:

  • US Embassy Jerusalem

Estimating for Conceptual, Schematic, Design Development, and Construction Documents Phases

Many times projects required preliminary estimating or budgets when they are in the planning stages. We work with Architects and Developers to build these budgets early on in the process.

This is extremely valuable for making design and financial decisions on projects. Since we’ve worked with so many types of projects, we are able to conceptually estimate projects when the final decisions have not been made yet.

CASE STUDY: How I AM Builders won a $4 Million Hospital New Construction project for the Go2Guy General Contractors

Xavier Miranda, owner of the Go2Guy, is a client of ours and primarily worked on GC and Subcontractor projects. He got this incredible opportunity to bid on their company’s biggest project, Jackson Hospital West in Miami, FL.

Their only issue was the lack of time they had to bid such a big project while still running their other jobs.

Because we had worked on a few jobs with them, they contacted us to help them prepare a bid package. He hired I AM Builder’s construction estimating services to calculate his labor and material including equipment and profit.

I AM Builders estimated the project and adjusted for Davis Bacon Prevailing wage rates. We also assisted in the negotiation and qualification phase on behalf of Go2Guy.

Fast forward several months and Go2Guy WAS AWARDED a $4 Million Contract.
