  • 4. Valesco Estimating and Post Contract Accurate estimating is the key to profit in construction, so the estimator must be aware of all factors affecting project costs including identifying areas of risk for consideration at the final review stage. By applying computer aided techniques to the estimating and tendering process an estimator can price a bid swiftly thereby allowing more time to identify the critical elements of a tender.Slide number 5 of 20
