05. What does an Electrical Estimator do?

An estimator estimates two things: the cost of each component installed on a project AND the time cost for a worker to install it. The estimator takes these costs for every component across the entire project, and comes up with an ‘estimate.’

Good estimators are able to factor changing conditions into their costs as well. Costs change month to month, project to project, and are different in each geographical area. Lack of ability can seriously and quickly damage a company’s reputation. ESTILEC takes you through exactly these aspects of the role… so you can get the right price, the first time!
