Estimating is a key skill that cannot be taken for granted. The more information pulled with an estimate, the better the end-result.
At CONNECT, we adopt positive estimating, meaning we do not exclude items that are simply too hard to cost. Positive estimating ensures that all design gaps get filled and assumed costs, impacts, risks and opportunities are reflected within the overall estimate.
Our honest approach will inform you of the true cost, not the cost that you may necessarily want to hear, but fore-warned is fore-armed.
Our honest and positive estimating approach has been utilised to good effect on these projects: -
Midland Metro Extensions, 2015 to 2017, £500m
Coventry Masterplan, SLC Rail, 2014 to 2018, £80m
Worcestershire Parkway Station, SLC Rail, 2014 to 2016, £17m
Confidential Rail Extension including stations, 2018, £150m
