Facilities Management Trade Shops
For work you plan to do with the FM Trade Shops, the following estimating services are available:
Budget Estimates are rough (+/- 25%) estimates to give you a ballpark idea of cost and/or help you decide if you want to proceed with the work. We do not perform any design work to prepare budget estimates and we provide them at no cost to the requestor.
Fixed Price Estimates are based on a well defined scope of work. The Shops prepare fixed price bids on a competitive basis with outside contractors, or on a sole source basis when the customer needs to know exactly how much they will spend on a job. The Shops do not charge for fixed price estimates when we perform the work described in the estimate or have an opportunity to compete for it. Otherwise we ask that customers cover the cost of preparing the estimate.
You can request either type of estimate by issuing a service request through Customer Service using either the on-line request or at 255-5322.
Facilities Management Project Services Group
The FM Project Services Group provides conceptual cost estimating for renovation projects as part of our project planning services. The PSG will meet with you to develop an understanding of your project and then work with you to establish a project plan including articulation of scope, schedule, project delivery method, and approximate project cost. For more information, please call Pat Redder, Director, 254-2768.
