Partial Project List

Note:  A conservative estimate of the number of jobs I have bid would be an average of one every two weeks for the last 27 years, or over 700 jobs.  From 1983 to 1986, I managed the construction of three projects for a GC, but the remainder of the time I was strictly an estimator, turning over jobs that were won to a project manager.   Below is just a small sampling of projects that I estimated for employers or clients, to show some of the variety of projects.   All bids below were for “division 9” subcontractors (drywall, light gauge framing, EIFS, stucco, plaster, insulation and acoustic ceilings), unless noted otherwise, and dollar amounts were for their scope of work, not for entire project.  Projects with asterisk* were definitely won; I was project manager on projects with (PM).  Dollar amounts are not adjusted for inflation.
