PRELIMINARY RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL TAKEOFFS

Our team can develop Preliminary Takeoffs before investing a lot of time and money into a project to make better design and business decisions. We work with basic Construction Drawings or even sketches. Getting it right in the beginning before you start your home construction is critical to the success of the project.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION FINAL TAKEOFFS AND ESTIMATES

Before starting construction it’s important to verify the bids being submitted by your contractors and subcontractors to avoid being overcharged, and to prevent tactics like front loading and unnecessary change orders. If you’re investing in a residential development project, our team can help you solidify and finalize your numbers before starting.

OWNER/BUILDER OR INVESTORS

Do you need to know if a residential investment is worth starting? Our analysis will review the project and give estimated pricing of a project before submitting for financing, obtaining vendor quotes, and to verify budgets to make correct investment purchasing decisions.

“Most contractors are missing out on over $200,000 per month in project contracts and they don’t even know it. They are busy, have no time for estimating, and they are leaving money on the table. A lot of money.

We designed our construction estimating service with the goal of helping our clients win projects and ultimately be successful.”

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.

With our construction lead generation services, we’ll find new leads personalized for your business.

Most contractors are so busy running their jobsites that they NEGLECT their bidding. You’re supervising jobs, making deliveries, going to jobsite meetings, and the only time to work on bidding 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 1,400 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 find your leads for you and can even takeoff your complete construction project after so you can focus on running your business and getting your nights and weekends back.

Stop missing out on bids because of time.

You’re probably MISSING OUT on $200,000 per month because you’re busy

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 yourself the best chance of winning? We can help you work the numbers when you’re negotiating, and even 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 easily show you.

These aren’t strategies we made 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.

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.
