About the Role

Axiom Builders is excited to open their first ever Seattle office and is looking for an entrepreneurial group to lead the expansion into the US. 

 

The Estimator will support and streamline the costing process on Axiom's growing pipeline of projects, from masterplan wood-frame communities to high-rise luxury towers and almost everything in between. Our estimating team plays a key role in preconstruction by analyzing and aligning trade budgets with project requirements, and effectively communicating project estimate details to clients/owners, architects and other project stakeholders. 

  • Use knowledge of construction methods to determine the most cost-effective approach;
  • Review designs to identify opportunities for cost savings;
  • Coordinate and assemble estimating input and quantities;
  • Prepare preliminary construction schedules, including major activities and phasing;
  • Conceptual estimating from preliminary drawings through final cost analysis;
  • Communicate with subtrades to assist in budgeting to ensure they understand their scope of work;
  • Review bid packages from sub-contractors and suppliers;
  • Assist in monitoring escalation trends;
  • Attend design meetings with Owner and Consultants as necessary.

What you Bring

The ideal candidate is an estimator, cost consultant or quantity surveyor who is eager to join a larger organization and support growing the Seattle operations. With an academic background in construction, you attribute your success to your numbers-driven mindset and detail-oriented way of working. You enjoy working collaboratively in a team environment but can be depended on to excel independently by being resourceful. You value openness and transparent communication - you see it as the key to a team's success. Work culture is important to you - and you are looking for an organization with a strong culture rooted in camaraderie and family.

 

Our Must Haves

  • At least three to five (3-5) years of recommended solid construction estimating, cost consulting or quantity surveying experience;
  • Project list that includes high-rise concrete, commercial, or mixed-use construction will be considered an asset;
  • Certificate, diploma or degree in Building Technology, Construction Management, Construction Technology, or a related field;
  • Willingness and interest to learn virtual construction and 3D modelling;
  • Strong communication both verbal and written - with confidence and ability to communicate with all levels of management.
