Hi Robert, We came in as lowest bidder on the Gunnison County Storage Facility. Our final number was $139,900. The next highest bidder was $151,000 and the highest bid was $250,000.

From Anthony, Steel & Welding Supplier, Florida
I really like the excel format that allows me to edit the report. Great work.
From David, Home Builder, Ohio
Thanks and great job on your estimate.
I have been working on my comparison with yours....however...
What I am doing is taking the labor part and seperating it...I assume I would get roughly the same comparison.
I may have further questions if that is OK.
Additionally, I may want to hire you for addtional services on this project if that would be OK.
