Cost estimation engineer/technician M/F

Carefully estimates operations in order to produce attractive and effective offers.

Diana, cost estimation engineer
I was looking for an occupation which would provide me with an overview of construction. I found one! We work on buildings and structures that are very different, whether in terms of size, techniques or other issues. I may go from a school, a ministry or a concert hall to a design-build project or a public-private partnership project. One thing this means is that my days are very varied!

Your main duties

In the context of a price consultation and in close cooperation with the sales and technical teams, you assess projects in order to optimise and ensure the reliability of the cost price of our operations. 

Depending on your profile, your main duties include: 

  • Carry out a complete study of the whole project or of a specific trade on the basis of preliminary design drawings
  • Analyse and estimate the costs of a project

  • Intelligence on the performance of new products

You support the sales manager or contract manager during the negotiation phase, and help him assemble a comprehensive and effective offer. After the contract is signed, you prepare the project dossier for the construction team.

Your future path
