Project Estimator – Boston, MA
Spaceworks Architectural Interiors has methodically revolutionized the delivery model for corporate interior fit-outs (www.spaceworksai.com). We are a rapidly growing private company in Boston and currently seeking a motivated, detail-oriented individual to join our Estimating Team, reporting to the firm’s Design and Pre-Construction Manager.
This is a unique opportunity to become part of a great team, participate in a highly collaborative environment, and gain outstanding industry training. While the role will primarily involve estimating, the desired individual will be wearing many hats and taking on a variety of responsibilities over time.

· Read and interpret construction drawings and specifications to determine project scope.
· Complete detailed independent takeoffs and gather relevant product quotes.
· Evaluate pricing and prepare detailed estimates and bid proposals for multiple concurrent projects.
· Compile and organize project-related documents, drawings, and quotes.
· Collaborate within the estimating team to coordinate meetings and tasks with your peers.
This may be the job for you if:
· You’ve earned a Bachelor's degree or equivalent. A GPA of 3.4 or above is preferred and a degree in the field of construction or design is a plus.
· You're a team player, but are comfortable working independently and can keep a level head under pressure.
