"Most contractors are missing out on over $200,000 per month in project contracts and they don't even know it. They are busy, no time to estimate, and they are leaving money on the table. A lot of money.

Our goal is to help our clients win projects and ultimately be successful."

-Daniel Quindemil
 Founder, I AM Builders

WHO IS I AM BUILDERS?

I AM Builders is a national construction estimating firm in the business of helping contractors win projects.  

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

Over the years, we've created a blueprint that many of our contractor clients are following that is getting them up to 50% close rates, tons and tons of project leads, and more projects they can handle.

WHO IS I AM BUILDERS?

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 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.

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU WIN MORE PROJECTS?

"I have NO TIME to estimate projects"

      -Every Contractor in America

The enemy of every contractor is the lack of time.  Most contractors are busy working IN  the business rather than working ON the business.  If that's the case, you're not alone.  We've worked with over 1,300 contractors nationwide estimating and consulting, and that's normal.  

But you've probably tried doing it yourself, working at night after work.... probably even on the weekends on the kitchen table.  We'll prepare your entire bid for you so you can focus on running your business and get your nights and weekends back.

Stop missing out on bids because of time.

Stop missing out on bids because of time.

You're probably MISSING OUT on $200,000/mo because you're busy 

We did an analysis and more contractors are missing out on several projects per month that they can actually win because they are so busy they just pass them up.  

Depending on what your average contract value is, most contractors are missing between $200-500K per month in sales because of being busy.

We'll prepare your entire estimate for you so can keep bidding those jobs.

We can estimate your entire project for you based on your LOCAL PRICING so the numbers will be accurate

I AM Builders is a licensed General Contractor and US Based so we have actual building experience.  

We use a combination of a cost database and our experience to price your projects based on the zip code of your project (Note:  Everyone at I AM Builders has actual field experience in construction, not just theory or "paper estimating").

Pricing for labor and material varies by area and zip code so we make adjustments for local labor rates, material pricing, and even look at the area's property value to determine accurate pricing.

We even back our estimates with a $1 MILLION ACCURACY GUARANTEE which covers all of our clients by our Errors and Omissions Insurance.

We can help you NEGOTIATE AND CLOSE based on proven strategies

Estimating is only a small part of what it takes to win a job.  We like to see this as a TEAM EFFORT.

What do you do after the estimate to give you the best chance of winning?  We can help you work the numbers when you're negotiating, jump on a conference call with your client (as your estimating team) to help you close.

We can even advise you on EXACTLY WHAT TO DO to have them wanting to USE YOU instead of your competitor.

Over the last 10 years, and after speaking and working with THOUSANDS of Contractors, we get to see what WORKS and what DOESN'T.   We have some clients landing 50% of their bids by implementing some of the strategies we can help you.  

These are strategies we didn't make up - we listened to our clients and created our blueprint based on what they are doing right, and avoiding what they were doing wrong.  Best of all..... IT WORKS for any construction business.

And if you're serious about growing your business, we can help you get more project leads and close more sales.

After working with on the estimating side of things, we help many of our clients get more leads so they can keep growing their business.

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, the contacted us to help them prepare a bid package.  

I AM Builders estimate 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.

FAQ

How much does it cost?

Every project is unique so to get a quote, you can send your plans to info@iambuilders.com. General price ranges for smaller projects can run in the $200-300, mid-sized projects can be in the $400-600 range, and large projects $1000+.

What is your hourly rate?

Our pricing is based on a per-project basis, not hourly. Our estimates are perfect for busy contractors that need an “On-Demand” estimate completed. Most contractors bid only a few projects per month and our pricing tends to be more affordable than hiring a full time in-house estimator.

Can I see examples?

Yes! Visit our Featured Estimates page to see examples of estimates we’ve done for other clients. You’ll see examples for Developers, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Architects, Residential Projects, Drywall and Framing, Painting, and more!

What is your turn around or delivery time?

For most projects our delivery is between 6-9 business days. Occasionally larger or more complex projects may take 8-10 or 10-12 business days. We always quote you an estimated timeframe before starting. If you have a rush project needed sooner than 6 days, let us know your bid date and we’ll try to accommodate, or add a small expedite fee to cover overtime costs with a guaranteed date.

What software do you use for estimating?

We use digital takeoff software to perform our quantities and a proprietary software to prepare and finalize the assemblies and pricing. Our labor and material pricing comes from Craftsman National Construction Estimator Database Suite which is updated multiple times per year, and pricing is based on your project’s zip code so your bid will be as accurate and competitive as possible.

Where do you get your prices from?

We get our pricing from Craftsman National Construction Estimator Database Suite which is updated multiple times per year, and pricing is based on your project’s zip code so your bid will be as accurate and competitive as possible.

What types of estimates do you do?

We specialize in Commercial, Residential, and Industrial projects. We perform estimates for Remodeling, New Construction, High Rises, Multifamily, Restaurants, Mixed-Use Retail and Residential, Warehouses, and more! We do estimates for General Contractors, Subcontractors, Developers, Architects, Owners, Lenders/Banks, Appraisers, Insurance Companies, and more.

What if I don’t have plans for the project?

That’s ok too. We can estimate the costs of projects based on quantities you give us or sketches.

Can you do estimates if the drawings are not completed?

Yes! We work with Architects, Developers, and Owners frequently in the early planning and design stages. If you have preliminary drawings, or an idea of what you would like to build, our team can estimate the cost of construction so you can make educated purchasing and design decisions.

How do I send you the plans for the project?

We make it easy to send us your plans. You can send them to us in any of the following ways:

You can email the plans and trades you would like to bid to info@iambuilders.com

You can email us your Invitation to Bid Email to info@iambuilders.com with the trades you would like to bid.

You can upload through our Dropbox by visiting: www.iambuilders.com/upload

What payment methods to you accept?

We use secure Quickbooks Online Payments where you can easily pay with your Credit Card. Once you send us your plans, we’ll send you a Quickbooks Invoice prior to starting for you and your team to review. If you choose to proceed, you can easily make a payment through your Desktop, Mobile Phone, or you can call us directly to process the payment. You can reach us at: (305) 433-6432.

How accurate are your estimates?

Our estimates are very accurate and based on your project’s zip code so your pricing will be accurate and competitive. Our estimates are designed as guidelines for you to finalize pricing so you’ll be able to make your final adjustments with the Excel Spreadsheet we send you. You can adjust Supervision, Equipment, Profit, and manually override any of our estimated pricing. Our labor and material costs come from Craftsman National Construction Estimator Database which is updated several times per year. Our estimating team are construction professionals with plenty of field experience and we make adjustments based on factors such as changes to productivity, equipment, etc. For example, if a wall is 20 ft high, we’ll need to include a lift along with slower productivity to adjust the labor price.

What guarantees do you offer?

Pricing in all regions varies and we used highly accurate cost databases along with field experience to price projects. We carry a $1 Million Accuracy Guarantee covered by our Errors and Omissions Insurance. If we were to ever make a mistake and you lose money on a project, you are completely covered. There will always be a variation in pricing based on the fluctuations in the market, labor shortages or surpluses, and major events that suddenly increase or decrease material or labor pricing.
