Affiliate InstructorSenior Estimator, Graham Construction

Background includes well over $1 billion in a wide range of estimates including; life sciences, living
facilities, education and healthcare, multi-family, labs, processing & manufacturing, commercial, small works and civil projects. The enjoyment of what I do as an estimator is working with developers and owners in the early stages of a project to help with budgeting and constructability issues that can steer a project towards cost and time savings. I pride myself by asking “why” and looking for “the invisible obvious” as I work towards a final cost estimate and never take for granted the wisdom of the Specialty trades that actually put the work in place, they are all valuable and I believe seeking their input while costing out a project is vital.
