Prepare cost estimates for construction projects, or services to aid management in bidding on or determining price of product or service.
Construction estimators calculate the price of time, labor and materials for a specific job, and then put together a bid. For new entrants to the field, that might involve blueprints, pencils and a calculator. For senior estimators, or those working at a large company, software does most of the heavy lifting.
