Project Overview:

This project was an engagement with a prominent construction and home renovation company based in Vancouver, called “Kerr Design Build”. They have been providing high-quality renovations and new homes for more than 30 years and reached out to us to tackle some of their challenges.

The client requested using Microsoft Excel for project estimation purposes as they needed a solution for summarizing these estimations and producing comprehensive reports. Furthermore, they required the ability to create invoices based on the project estimations. Managing payments efficiently was also a crucial aspect of the challenge. Lastly, Kerr company sought a solution for effectively organizing and managing contact information.

We set out to refine their construction estimating practices and engaged in detailed discussions to fully grasp their unique challenges and project objectives. Recognizing the pivotal role of precise cost estimation in the construction industry, we utilized the capabilities of Microsoft Excel to develop tailored solutions. The result was a transformation of their construction estimating processes, enabling them to achieve higher levels of efficiency.

Technologies Used:

Macros played a crucial role in automating tasks like invoice generation, data summarization, and payment management, contributing significantly to the efficiency and effectiveness of our solution.

Challenges Faced:

During our collaboration with Kerr Design Build, several key challenges were addressed to optimize their construction estimating processes. The main challenge was to integrate a versatile and robust estimation system using Microsoft Excel, which had to be both intuitive and comprehensive enough for various users within the organization. Additionally, the requirement to automate invoicing and manage payment schedules demanded precise customization of Excel functionalities. Another significant challenge was ensuring that all project-related data remained synchronized across different sheets, enhancing accuracy and efficiency in reporting and billing.

Applied Excel Solutions:

To tackle Kerr Design Build’s specific challenges, we developed an advanced Excel solution tailored to streamline their construction estimating and management processes:

Client Info Sheet:

This sheet captures essential client details such as names, addresses, job descriptions, and billing dates. Crucially, any modifications in this sheet automatically update corresponding fields across all other relevant sheets, maintaining data integrity and coherence.

Estimation Sheet:

Here, costs are broken down by job phase and division, including categories like Professional Fees, Permit & Connection Fees, Site Overhead, and Sitework. This structured approach allows for precise estimations, and with the implementation of a simple button click, comprehensive reports are generated, summarizing the estimated costs.
