In such cases, it is normally desired for the parallel check estimate to be completed in advance of the owner receiving the final FEED package estimate from the contractor. That way, a review of the parallel check estimate can be conducted with the owner, providing independent third-party perspectives. Often times, a comparative analysis is developed by CAF-CORPORATION using both the EPC’s and CAF-CORPORATION’ estimate to identify and highlight the gaps.
Benefits With Our Service
Finding qualified cost estimators is a frequent challenge in project engineering departments and can be a considerable cost. With outsourced cost estimating services, you’ll have access to a reliable team of professional experts whenever you need them and for as long as you need them.
When estimating is outsourced, more time and resources are gained to focus on the core competencies of your business project. Although estimating tasks are a critical part of any Project development, they are not by necessity functions in which most companies have experience. By allowing an outsourcing partner to take care of those specialized areas, your company can focus its attention on growing its project engineering development.
Since outsourced partners are not your employees, your company is not responsible for training or managing them. That responsibility falls on the management of the cost estimating outsourcing company, which allows you to focus on the main competences.
With outsourced staff, your company doesn’t invest time in recruiting, interviewing, hiring, training, or managing jobs. Those responsibilities fall to the outsourcing company, freeing up your resources to focus on your employees and core manufacturing functions.
Especially for estimating managers who operate on a tight budget, outsourcing estimating tasks may be ideal.
In this way, you will be able to adjust the difficult balance between cutting costs and keeping your team work load optimized.
When estimating managers outsource estimating tasks, their contracts allow them to pay only for the services they need.
In addition, although many of the professionals on the staff are usually generalists, as technologies evolve, an increasing number of routines estimating tasks are for specialists.
However, if outsourced, companies can benefit from professionals with specific knowledge to be able to efficiently develop your cost estimating plan.
In a world characterized by unpredictability, hiring estimating professionals can help managers stay on top of unexpected changes or the changing needs of their businesses.
For example, a substantial change in the number of attendees to an installation can lead to an increase in the need for certain tasks. And while onboarding new in-house staff can be a lengthy process, getting support from a third party is usually quicker and easier.
Thus, hiring the estimate and outsourcing the technical tasks is a flexible and scalable solution to remain solvent and respond to changes as they occur.

A good outsourcing PARTNER must be up to date with the latest advances in the sector to implement the necessary digital tools taking advantage of these innovations. We have qualified professionals for its execution through the integration of historical data and data analysis algorithms.
