Tony Abi-Daher, Allied’s senior estimator, uses ProEst software skills and experience on each project estimate. His main responsibilities are to analyze blueprints and other documentation in order to prepare time, cost, materials and labor estimates. Tony assesses cost effectiveness of products or services and tracks actual costs relative to bids as the project develops. During the estimating process, he consults with clients, subcontractors, vendors and other Allied personnel, including superintendents, to discuss and formulate estimates, and resolve issues. He also confers with engineers, architects, owners, subcontractors and vendors on changes and adjustments to cost estimates. Often times Tony prepares estimates for planning, organizing and scheduling work, and to select vendors and subcontractors.
