Responsibilities of an Electrical Estimator

 

For each project, Electrical Estimators assess various data: blueprints, timeline, materials, wire lengths, major appliances, utility placement, outlet placement, and electrical codes. They also take note if there are custom fixtures needed. Electrical Estimators assess the supplier cost of these factors and determine how much each electrical element will cost the contractor. Considering the materials, Electrical Estimators also study the overall labor needed for each project. They may work with one primary contractor or have subcontractors. 

 

Furthermore, Electrical Estimators determine the potential profitability of a project. Some contractors may decide not to continue bidding for a job if the costs are so high. What Electrical Estimators do in this situation is to look for alternative ways to lower the cost like changing suppliers or cutting labor costs. They work efficiently to prepare and submit bids on time, ensuring that it is competitive and accurate. 

 

Electrical Estimators work with contractors, designers, engineers, architects, and other professionals engaged in the construction project. They communicate in a timely and effective manner to ensure that all projects progress within the set timeline.

Skills and Qualifications of an Electrical Estimator

 

While no course focuses solely on electrical cost estimation, it is studied as part of academic programs like Construction Management, Engineering, or Construction Science. It is advantageous for candidates to have a bachelor's degree in one of these fields. Completion of an electrician training program is likewise beneficial. 

Previous work experience as an Electrical Estimator or as an Electrician is a plus. Additionally, candidates with certification from the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE) or the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering International (AACE) have an edge.
