Job Description for Production Estimator

A production estimator is a key employee for construction and contracting firms. This is the person who assesses a variety of disparate aspects of projects and determines their costs. The estimator's job is essential because his/her determinations will be used when bids are submitted for construction, remodeling, or renovations. If the figure is too low, the contractor may have trouble getting the difference and have to assume the overrun cost; if the figure is too large, the firm may not secure enough bids to remain operational.
