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 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 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.
The shown building is a project that we are about to start and it will be interesting to see how the candidates try to price it. We don’t expect them to come back with the right figure but we expect them to have a number based in a logical reasoning.
The candidate will price the whole structural steel structure. Bear in mind that we expect to design, fabricate and install all the steels shown on drawings. I’m attaching a file with all the material measured so we don’t expect you to do any measurement, we only want you to analyse the information given and based on that and all the assumptions that you reckon it’s required for the job, get a final price. We will take in consideration those answers where the installation process is explained for all the different locations.
The candidate will pick 3 random connection details of the purposed structure and will do a handmade drawing of the connection. The handmade drawing has to show elevations and 3D of the detail.
The candidate will price the drawing of column strengthening. Supply and installation.
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.
