3 ways Cordell Cost Guides can help your business 

  1. Estimate more accurately - it's easier to estimate accurately with individual labour, material and plant hire costings. Each costing rate includes the labour required to fix the item into position, all material costs including appropriate allowances for waste, and any plant hire costs involved.
  2. Save time – don’t waste time with multiple sources, use one comprehensive resource in a convenient electronic or printed format that gives you current data and 12 months’ estimator support.
  3. Save money - each element is shown independently and then totalled to give you the total dollar value. This allows you to accurately compare the rate given against your own particular situation then accept the rate or make any price adjustments.
