Stewart Thompson, a veteran in the electrical and mechanical services industries, responded to growing demand for professional estimating engineers with the establishment of SpecialEST in 2004. The company was founded espousing the aim to "provide our customers with a fast, reliable, professional and cost-effective estimating solution." Ever since they have been providing unparalleled estimating and bidding services for electrical and mechanical building services contractors. Helping them to win work at the correct market value. They have been able to do this for local companies and larger national contractors because of the combined experience of their team of over 125 years, commitment to using only the latest technology, and complete service with aspects not provided elsewhere such as attendance of pre- and post contract meetings and site surveys.
A comprehensive overview of their services follows, but in brief:
Estimates are calculated using the latest software systems - Luckins Software Toolcase and Barnes Computing - that list over 500,000 products with all prices updated on a weekly basis. Enquiries are made to your specified suppliers and subcontractors to produce the most accurate estimate possible. The estimate systems use known and custom scales to calculate a total tender price taking into account your labour rate prelims and mark-ups, industry standard labour timings - or your custom timings - and discounts. The systems can export the estimates in a host of document formats, the most popular being Microsoft Word and Excel, and Adobe PDF.
Local collection and delivery is available, as well as first class post and courier service national delivery.
These estimating systems give us access to over 500,000 products, with all the prices updated on a weekly basis. Furthermore, we will send enquiries to your specified manufacturers, suppliers and subcontractors for their pricing estimates.
We will then calculate your final tender costing taking into account discounts and labour installation times, where we use the industry standard, but can apply your timings. Our estimate documents can be locally collected, or delivered electronically or by first class post, courier or locally by a member of our team, in a multitude of formats. The most popular being Electronic Estimate format, Microsoft Word and Excel (2007), Adobe PDF (2009) and AutoCAD (2009).
