Estimator Jobs in Petaluma, CA

Responsible for gauging the cost and time a project will require. Estimators may travel to worksites, read blueprints and technical documents, collaborate with engineers and other high-level personnel, or consult construction experts in order to gather data regarding materials, labor, and time needed to complete the project. They analyze this information to calculate reasonable cost-effective budgets and probable project timelines. Strong computer skills are important, as most estimates are determined using programs.

Estimators produce output for several purposes. Some focus on specific parts of a larger project, such as the time needed for a particular phase or cost of plumbing. Others compile these focused assessments into general estimates for the entire project. Still others might coordinate with sales teams to use their calculations to plan and deliver bids to clients.
