Suffolk County Design Build GC/CM | Senior Estimating Role Available

Your new company
I am partnered with Long Island based GC/CM and Design/Builder firm that has been in business for over 40 years building large-scale retail, industrial warehousing, and mixed-use residential developments across the tri-state area. They focus on project values ranging from $1M to over $100M.

Your new role
My client is looking for a Senior Construction Estimator based in their Long Island office responsible for producing full construction cost estimates for mainly GMP contracts. This will be a hands-on role that will require the successful individual to actively bid, having a very good network of reliable subcontractors that can be leveraged in producing competitive cost estimates.

You can expect the following on a day-to-day basis:

• Review blueprints, specifications, proposals, and other documentation to determine the scope and requirements for cost estimates
• Prepare detailed estimates of costs for materials, equipment, and labor, using estimating techniques and knowledge of construction procedures
• Visit job sites to gather information on access, storage for materials, project obstacles, and other factors that could affect cost
• Consult with clients, architects, engineers, subcontractors, and vendors to discuss budget, procedures, specifications, and materials
• Determine pricing for specialized equipment, materials costs, location factors, and projected labor wages based on current market rates
• Use estimating software and knowledge of accounting principles to produce complete, accurate estimates
• Compare bids from subcontractors and vendors to formulate a competitive overall bid
• Present detailed estimates and bids to management for approval before submitting to client
• Ensure proposals and estimates comply with laws, regulations, and company policies
• Lead, coach and mentor junior estimators
• Continually seek out the latest construction innovations, methods, and cost data to produce up-to-date estimates

What you'll need to succeed
To be successful in this role as a Senior Estimator, you should have at least 8+ years’ experience in the industry delivering a mix of GMP, lump-sum, or negotiated estimates for a range of projects across the tri-state. You will be able to build on existing subcontractor relationships and, ideally, have a Civil Engineering, Architecture or Construction Management degree or similar experience. Having experience with On-Screen Take-Off and Procore are not essential, but highly desirable.

What you'll get in return
In addition to a competitive salary and benefits package the company has a supportive management structure and can offer excellent scope for growth and development. If you are looking to take on greater responsibility, be a part of major projects and work for a vibrant business with excellent career scope, then we would like to hear from you.
