Our team can help you
At KDM, we are well versed in all levels of estimating including Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Document (Definitive) estimating methods for all disciplines. Dan has also worked on many successful Design-Build teams in the past. As a CPE, Dan follows the Standard Estimating Practice Manual guidelines established by the American Society of Professional Estimators.
These guidelines allow us to utilize the CSI (Construction Specifications Institute) master format for all of our detailed estimates. What you get is a legible, systematic and understandable estimate.
Our estimating software (ArenaSoft, LLC) is a state of the art estimating system with "dump to Excel" capabilities,  assemblies capabilities, and click on Cost Data from R.S. Means. We use GTCO CalComp Digitizers for accurate quantity surveys.
Value Engineering is also a key asset at KDM. Due to our versatility  and long tenure in the commercial construction industry, we have many options to choose from in order to get your project back on track and in budget.
We also offer pre-construction services in order to steer our clients in the right direction. Our relationships with Architects and Engineers throughout the state of WV, Ohio and Pennsylvania have allowed us to maintain a consistent client base in just under 8 years of operation.
And finally, Dan has been an expert witness in a multitude of cases involving construction litigation.
Our Motto
"For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost, to see if he has enough to complete it"? "Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, saying, "This man began to build and was not able to finish." LUKE 14: 28-30
