Conceptual Estimates for Tulsa Area Construction Projects

Building First Nations preliminary estimating services ensure your Tulsa area construction project has a clear view of expected costs so we can complete your build on time and within budget.

Begin Developing a Realistic Construction Budget With Knowledgeable Preliminary Estimating Services

Think of conceptual estimates as the initial draft of a movie script. While there’s more to develop and feedback to incorporate, you’re outlining the main components of the story in the early stages. Building First Nations’ preliminary estimating services give you a general idea of the total cost based on the limited available information about your project’s scope, materials, and labor during the initial design and preconstruction phases.

During this time, we begin seeing the effect different design and construction elements have and whether they are feasible with your budget. We take pride in providing accurate conceptual estimates by using our expertise, analyzing data from similar previous projects, and keeping a close eye on material, labor, and construction costs. That’s because we understand inaccurate or undetailed preliminary cost estimates cause significant problems for commercial or industrial construction projects, including cost overruns, delays, and even project cancellation. With BFN, you have a partner that builds a plan that allows us to complete the project on time and within budget every time.

Cost Estimating vs. Conceptual Estimating

Conceptual estimating is used in the early stages of a construction project to provide a general idea of costs. It’s based on preliminary design documents and outlines the project’s overall scope. On the other hand, cost estimating is a more detailed process later in the project when more specific design details are available. Actual quantities of materials and labor hours are used to produce a precise budget for your project. As a full-service general contractor, BFN is here to provide you with cost and conceptual estimates to align your goals and project costs.
