When preparing the drywall estimate, complete knowledge of the drywall installation process is required. Our drywall estimators start with the review of drawing plans and systematic bid documents to identify the scope of the projects. Then, using the latest takeoff software like Planswift, we measure the walls, partitions, and ceilings by the point and click methods. The use of digital software mitigates the chances of errors and the exact square footage are measured.

All the quantities are then exported to EXCEL spreadsheets and organized with floors, wall types, partitions, sections, and elevations. The exact amount of material i.e sheetrock panels, drywall mud, screws, beads, clips, etc, required to complete the installation process is estimated.

Pricing is applied using RSMeans and our construction cost database for up to date and location-based costing of material and labor. We can also use your labor rates and send you quoted material lists that you can forward to your vendors.

Local labor rates and labor hours, transportation costs, painting costs (if required), wastages, and other miscellaneous costs like permits, taxes, site repairs, cleanups, etc. are mentioned in our estimates. We also employ value engineering to increase our client’s profit potential.

Quick Turnarounds

We have a staff of skilled estimators that can estimate or takeoff home plans in as little as 24 to 48 hours, both for commercial and residential projects. Turnaround times for commercial estimates might change depending on the complexity and scale of the project.

Accurate Construction Cost Database

We deploy RSMeans and our developed construction cost database for material, labor and equipment pricing for up to date and zip code based costing.


The first step in the estimating process at World Estimating is the review of the drawing plans by the MEP specialist, who has extensive prior experience working with Mechanical (HVAC), ducting, air-conditioning systems, refrigeration units, Electrical, low voltage equipment, and Plumbing takeoffs. The specifics, timelines, and requirements, together with a few small general observations, are taken into account.

Each drawing plan is then uploaded using our approved software, such as Trimble, Bluebeam, Plan Swift, FastWRAP, FastDUCT, etc. A senior estimator, who assures a cold-eyed evaluation from marked-up plans and takeoffs sheets in EXCEL, reviews the quantities from the plans after our qualified and certified estimator takesoffs them and ensures that all considerations, correct standards, and codes are followed.

Each line item is quantified, stated, and given the appropriate explanation in accordance with the goal. It is defined what the job-winning approach will be for bid estimates, procurement, and supply needs. After the estimation department has undergone peer review, estimates for residential, commercial, and industrial projects are presented to clients.
