Hey there, I own an Interior and Graphic Design Firm in the States. I need someone that understands construction, residential mostly. I need someone that can do material take offs. I need someone that can help with creating schedules and milestones. I need someone that can make drawings needed for construction, as well as pulling permits. I need someone that can create estimates and proposals for customers. I need someone that can take a set of measurements that I give them, quickly understand them, and help create a schedule, estimate and proposal, and a material list. Ideally this person would also help with managing my sub contractors. They would check in with them to make sure the job is going on schedule, and staying under budget. This can all easily be done virtually for the right person.

hi, I have a carport that needs a roof. I have a company that I have contacted to engineer and build the roof for me, but the roof sheeting and some other items they do not stock- and I would like to buy these from another company. The problem is, I do not know how much to buy. I cant work out how much material would cover the roof as there is a 20 degree slope on the roof plus roof sheeting needs to be cut, there needs to be a little bit more for waste, sheets will overlap etc- its confusing for me. In total there is 3 building products that need to be worked out and measured out etc. I will supply measured detail for the raw product as well as the cost to buy it from the store, you would then work out how much I would need to buy, as well as how much it would cost me. The three items are roof sheeting, battens (you may call them purlins) and also ridge capping. All are steel products. I am looking at having this done within the next 2 days. Successful applicant will...

This is for a construction company. I need to have designed, an excel spreadsheet, a program.... or a webpage, that can be taken with an estimator to a customers home when providing a quotation and allow the estimator to simply punch in the dimensions of the project and have this program/spreadsheet automatically calculate and present everything. I would like this 1 program/spreadsheet to streamline several processes: 1. A quoted price and graphically presentable quote to be generated, able to be printed, signed and used as a contract. The price and items included would autopopulate based on the measurements and add-ons selected 2. allowing the customer or estimator to adjust that price by simply selecting different available add-ons and upgrades (which would vary in price based on the measurements and dimensions input) 3. creating a material list based off of these input dimensions and measurements 4. creating a cost of materials and labour based on dimensions and measurements 5....
