The Bay (and beyond) Estimating Service

We offer an affordable building estimating service, which is easily accessible by anyone involved in domestic and commercial building projects.

Using our own in-house software and quantification techniques, we can quickly convert your drawings into an accurate schedule of quantities and/or labour and materials estimate. We specialise in all building works, from alterations to new build homes, factories, schools through to high rise projects, and cover all trades.

Estimate schedules are produced generally in the format of NZS 4202 (standard method of measurement of building works) and supplied to you in Microsoft Excel, Word format or pdf as you require.

Labour, materials and subtrade pricing can be included in estimates as required.
