It incurs cost and risk, so it’s always best to have a Mechanical and Electrical Contract Review system in place to put you in the best position to subjectively evaluate those risks. Whilst we can undertake your estimating work we can also assist your estimator by reviewing the contract documents. So before taking on more estimators consider UK Estimating Support.
