Due to the excessive volume of projects we are receiving to price we have decided to open another position in our estimation department. Fortunately the person we picked before is doing it well so we decided to give a second chance to people with the same skills who sent their CVs for that first job offer.
We are currently looking for an Assistant Estimator to join our company immediately. We will provide the required training to reach the level of knowledge required for the position. The person selected will be working together with me helping with take-off of projects and any other tasks that involves the position.
This is a good opportunity for people with a bachelor in Architectural Technology, Building Engineer or Quantity Surveyor. As construction technology grows more complex, we are looking for a candidate with a strong knowledge of building science and construction processes, which are both critical to successful estimate preparation.
The candidate has to show capability to understand structural drawings and ability to draw free hand as in many cases we end up drawing the type of structural details we are pricing for due to insufficient information from engineer drawings.
An Estimator at ASME is an individual who prepares cost estimates for architectural and structural steel structures; from Bespoke feature Staircases, to Data Centre’s, to Key Building Refurbishments and Commercial Buildings. The chosen estimator must rely on the use of construction plans and their own experience in the industry to prepare and analyse project budgets and spending.
If you are still interested in the position please read below the exercise proposal we are going to revise in order to select the final candidates. We will do face to face (or skype in case you are not in London) interviews to the final 3 candidates and from that we will take the decision. Note that we don’t mind your working experience so we will base our decision mainly in the way you solve the proposed exercise and your education.
We need you to price the attached steel structure. The proposed drawings doesn’t have all the information required but that’s something that happen quite often in this sector. You will have to research how to price it and use your imagination. The final price doesn’t have to be right but your answer must show us that there is an argument behind it.
Your proposal hast to have the following points.
- Take off in Excel document of all the steels required. We will appreciate if you use formulas to get final weight/prices/etc. Take off: list of materials with quantities and types.
- Handmade drawings of at least 3 different type of connections. They don’t show any connection so you have to imagine it.
- Explanation of the installation process (just number few steps to take in count for pricing the installation).
- Final price of the job and comments to explain the reason of your quote.
