Construction Estimating Template

Our Construction Estimating Template is a must have for all builders and construction companies who undertake domestic building projects.


Estimating is the most important thing you do as a builder / construction company.

The construction estimating template we provide has the labour and material cost price for every single standard item required for domestic extensions, refurbishments and new build houses. It can even be used by specalist subcontractors.

Our construction estimating template is in microsoft excel and you can add or delete items as you wish. The template include for over 200 standard build items. It is a complete construction estimating template, everything is set out in a professional way. All you have to do is insert the m2 or Lm for each item and how much profit (OHP).

The construction estimating template is a one off purchase and you can use it for the life of your business. It really is a must have for all builders. This template will pay for itself within two estimates because it will save you so much time preparing your quotation. Plus your clients will be impressed with the professional lay out and are more likley to offer you the contract, even if you are not the cheapest quotation.
