Why CES Ltd?

Before I answer can I just ask you a few questions:

  1. Would you climb aboard an aeroplane with a pilot that has flown nothing more than a kite?
  2. Would you go to a surgery and seek medical advice from someone holding nothing more than a first aid certificate?
  3. Would you trust your company and livelihood to an estimating company that can read drawings and schedules and produce impressive looking priced documents?

If you, and I hope you have answered a resounding NO to any of these questions please read on

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Choose CES?

We have a proven track record of delivering winning tenders with maximum profit margins.

How much will it cost me?

Unlike other online estimators that can apply a cheap and standard price list to inflexible excel based estimates we offer a bespoke service tailored to every project. We are not nor claim to be the cheapest but you will get full value for money and the same if not better service than a direct employed estimator. I can only advise that you contact me for further deatils

How long does a tender take to price a job?

This is totally dependant on many factors but primarily on the clients requirements. Needless to say I have never ever missed a tender submission date.

What does CES do that I can’t get cheaper elsewhere?

What don’t we do?

We are a direct extension of your company whilst in your employment. We come to your home or offices to meet you and become acquainted with the project. We determine, together, the best delivery strategy for you and the project. We follow this up with a mid tender review meeting and finally, prior to submission a tender adjudication meeting. It is here where I handover all the pre-tender documentation, agree and amend areas identified and finally complete the Form of Tender ready for submission.

Is it possible to seek free estimating advice at CES?

We will provide assistance and guidance in all matters whenever requested. So  you need to get in contact before we can offer any benefit.

How can I trust CES?

Every project and client is treated in the utmost confidence.

I can and have provided a signed non disclosure agreement to certain clients upon request


We won’t brag about our clients/tenders, but just let the results speak for themselves
