  • Obtain and review quotations for all Mechanical, Electrical, LV & IT Equipment and materials other than the fixed-rate items.
  • Maintain a database for cost price lists for Mechanical, Electrical & IT typical material, and labor man hours cost.
  • Utilize engineering expertise to perform in-depth analysis of project scopes, identifying potential risks, opportunities, and value engineering options to optimize cost efficiency.
  • Prepare detailed and organized estimate documentation, including breakdowns of costs, assumptions made, and methodologies employed. Keep records of all estimates and bid-related documents.
  • Generate and track bids and budget estimates from the pre-concept design stage to the construction document stage.
  • Present value engineering and cost-saving opportunities to clients as required to meet budget constraints.
  • Stay updated with industry trends, materials, and construction methods related to Mechanical, Electrical, and IT systems. Identify opportunities for process improvement within the estimation process.
  • Recognize/identify potential document discrepancies and errors and develop RFI questions for a timely response.
  • Preparation of shop drawings and build sheets during project execution stages to facilitate the project management department.
  • Assist in tracking project costs against estimates, highlighting discrepancies and suggesting corrective actions to ensure projects remain on budget.
  • Performing a wide range of engineering tasks by operating computer-assisted design or engineering software and equipment such as AutoCAD.
  • Develop scope letters for each bid and budget, review bids from sub-contractors, review scopes of work, and analyze costs as bids are received.
  • Evaluated change orders and informed project management about their potential implications on project cost, schedule, and quality.
  • Attend meetings with the shareholders to update and discuss the project conditions, estimate totals, and incorporate value engineering where required.

Qualifications

  • 3-5 years of experience in MEP design or estimation.
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Knowledge of Electrical power distribution systems, Residential Load Distribution, Electric codes, HAP load calculations and Ducting/Piping systems, AHSRAE Standards.
