DRAFTING AND ESTIMATING

When precision is key, count on our specialists for your drafting and construction estimating needs. We can create blueprints and technical drawings and then calculate material lists and complex take-offs. Our estimating services will take the guesswork out of your construction specifications so you can get back to building.
PROFESSIONALS RELY ON OUR ESTIMATING SERVICES

From framing to decking to complex structural connection needs, we provide accurate estimates to complete any project. Our specialists work with you to help finish the job no matter the size. We can also create quantity takeoffs for doors and finished basements to give you a detailed estimate of materials and labor based on your blueprints or plan’s specifications.

Our team offers estimating on materials including:

  • Lumber and Millwork
  • Windows and Doors
  • Exterior Building Materials and Hardware
  • Roofing and Flooring
  • EWP Drawings: I-Joists and Beams
  • Trusses and Wall Panels
DIGITAL DRAFTING

One of the most difficult elements of creating your dream space is visualizing how your room will look once finished.

Our sales and design team is happy to sit down with you, listen to what you want, and then provide a free design with a corresponding estimate using our CAD (Computer Aided Design) software. During this process, you’ll be able to experience what your finished space can look like, giving you confidence before proceeding in your project.

VALUE DESIGNING

At select BFS locations, we can help you draft plans and design a house for maximum efficiency. This means less waste, higher quality and peace of mind. And it doesn’t stop there. If we can save you time or money with a product swap on a quote, we’ll give you that option too.

You can count on a single integrated data platform for whole-house framing, assurance and confirmation of exactly how the structural frame will be assembled on site. This results in a true balance of performance and cost expectations from entry-level to luxury homes, and quick and accurate information exchange about changes, revisions, upgrades and layout options.

Our goal is to help you build as efficiently as possible. We offer full house design and engineering with software and technology for: floor systems, wall designs (for job site stick-built or pre-manufactured components), roof systems using manufactured trusses, material take-offs coordinated through floor, wall, and roof systems. Why is this important? You'll receive a higher standard of accuracy, and better communication with framers.
