Cost Estimators perform an important role within the Contracts and Pricing section of the Business Management organization. Cost Estimators develop material and man-hour estimates, analyze and compare cost information for proposal variances, project funding progress, and compile estimate documentation to support contract negotiations. Estimating apprentices will evaluate customer requirement documents, participate in job scope development and budget distribution, assist with planning workflow for trades departments, and analyze performance to budget.
Apprentices selected for the Advanced Optional Programs will spend about two years on the waterfront and the remainder of the apprenticeship in the optional program for which they are selected. Criteria for selection include academic grades, craft performance, attendance, personal interest, and aptitude for the work.
