Devcon follows just one iron-clad rule about estimating – “no surprises.” Devcon’s budgets are detailed and cover all construction costs, including permitting and inspection fees. We expect similar clarity and detail from subcontractors. One of the reasons customers trust Devcon is that they quickly learn they can trust Devcon’s estimating.

The resulting budgets include a detailed analysis of the cost and schedule impact of various design options, as well as cost avoidance ideas from our own seasoned experts and from subcontractors. In addition to best practices learned from decades of experience on a wide range of projects, Devcon estimators continuously update their knowledge of construction materials and processes to improve efficiency.

Ultimately, the estimating process allows Devcon to establish a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) that we will then use to create a detailed cash flow forecast and construction schedule.
