The completed estimate, our standard estimating reports and all the quotes we have received are sent to you on the agreed date. A unique model tender letter is supplied which outlines what your estimate is based upon. We also include a schedule which details all the companies we have sent tender enquiries to; whether they are a sub-contractor or a supplier, whether they are specified or not and their prices. This can be used to evaluate your commercial risks and approach to the tender. Most importantly, we will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Once your tender is submitted, usually there are post tender negoiations and prices. We can help with this process, along with producing a great schedule of rates to maximise your profit potential from variations.

“We are finding that estimating these days is more about what’s not on the drawings and in the specifications than what’s on them. Our background experience allows us to see the missing pieces more clearly, this is where Experience really counts,” J.Johnson MD.
UK Estimating Support was established in 2004.
John has over 30 years experience in the M&E contracting industry. He started his career in 1981 as an indentured apprentice with Drake and Scull and worked on a wide variety of contracts with this major M&E company. The contracts included hospitals, schools, prisons, power stations, commercial premises, chemical and petrochemical sites, WTW & WWTW. After completing his apprenticeship, John gained his City and Guilds Part 1, 2 and C certificates, ONC and HNC. John started as an estimator then moved onto become a senior estimator before managing the estimating department of a large mechanical, electrical and construction company. His experience gained commercially, contractually and practically was the key ingredient which allowed UK Estimating Support to provide a successful estimating service to mechanical and electrical contractors for the past five years.
