Estimators play a critical role at CRB. As a Design, Construction and Consulting firm, CRB requires estimating expertise to support business goals and project management from project inception through final construction completion. Estimators are expected to adapt methods to match the intended use of the estimate and the level of project definition available: relying on conceptual methods in the early stages of design, developing detailed labor and material estimates as design approaches full-project definition, and the ability to supplement these methods with a network of subcontractors and vendors when preparing construction proposals (Lump Sum, GMP, T&M, etc.).
The Electrical Estimator will report to the Lead Estimator in the Region and the Corporate Estimating Manager. At times, the Electrical Estimator will be asked to lead estimates; however, this responsibility will typically fall to the Lead Estimator. Estimators will focus on projects destined for construction within their resident Region, but, as a Corporate Employee, estimators will support other regions as the workload dictates.
