Digger Specialties, Inc. an industry leading manufacturer of Outdoor Living Products has expanded their Design Assist program for Architects, Builders, Developers, Contractors, and Design Professionals.

Project Estimating Take-Off Service

In August of 2017 DSI established an Estimating Program to assist customers by providing Take-Offs for prospective jobs. When the service was originally launched the focus was on large complex projects. Over the past few years, the need for this service has grown significantly. To meet this increased demand DSI expanded the reach of the Estimating Program in several ways.

First, they hired a second estimator to assist with the increasing workload. Scott Thomas joined the DSI team with Jeremy Price, DSI Lead Estimator. Second, DSI expanded their scope to include all sizes of estimating needs. Whether it is a residential or a large complex project DSI wants to help you complete your project. Their team looks at prints and asks the pertinent questions to make sure they are correctly estimating what you and your customers need for the project. A Parts List will be provided and upon request a Takeoff Legend Sheet can be produced showing where the parts fit into the project.
