G.C. Solutions, Inc. (GCS) is a leader in the industry with a reputation for producing detailed "bottom up" cost estimates that are concise and, more important, accurate. In today's construction climate, having the "right" number means everything to owners who are allocating tax dollars for new projects, and for contractors who are estimating new profi table work. GCS can provide complete estimates including general-conditions, partial estimates and check estimates. We are also experienced with Joint-Venture estimate coordination and protocol. GCS personnel have years of experience as estimate sponsors with Kiewit Construction, in addition to possessing a thorough understanding of construction means and methods from working as "on-site" managers. GCS can provide a tailored scope of work to meet your specific needs.
