Estimating for residential, commercial & industrial projects

Need an estimate for a new project or renovation? If it’s in South East Queensland, we can help!

Cost means time and time means cost. And lost time means added cost

So we use CostX software to prepare our estimates and Bill of Quantities. We specialise in:

  • Residential estimating
  • Architectural style estimating
  • Renovations, extensions & house-raising
  • Multi-residential
  • Commercial & industrial
  • Trades Packages
  • Subcontractors trades & supplier take offs

Simplified pricing

A quick drive around town shows just how varied construction and design can be. So, rather than providing an individual quote for every job, we base our quotes on the total floor area of your project. Sure, sometimes we under-quote, but that’s life. I’m not a QS for the money, rather the lifestyle.

Bill of quantities

Since we quote based on your total floor area, it’s easy to give you an exact price right here (all prices excl. GST):
