Our estimation process

  • The estimation process at Reltic starts with a formal meeting of estimators to discuss and identify the scope of work. This also includes the allocation of tasks to trade specialist estimators.

  • Then after reviewing the project documents and specifications provided by the client, the trade specialised estimators import the plans using the latest software and measure the dimensions and scales by the point and click method to digitally takeoff the quantities.

  • After performing the on-screen takeoffs, all the material quantities are exported to EXCEL spreadsheets.
