Globe’s consulting services and training is designed for the new or growing contractor. Do not be guilty if getting a reputation for being a great worker but a weak business person. Being small and a hard worker will only take you so far as a contractor. If you want to do business to business work you will have to project a professional positive image. This starts from the moment you have the initial communication with a potential client.
Globe’s consulting services and training is tailored to fit your individual needs. After an initial free consultation between your company and ours we will start putting together a plan to help you meet your goals. During this consultation we will decide on a format for your training. It can be in a formal setting where that multiple people can attend or it can be an informal one on one session.

In today’s economy having an independent electrical estimator provides a number of benefits. For Electrical Contractors it means being able to bid that extra job that you might otherwise have to pass on due to time constraints, or perhaps it provides a means to lower the overhead cost, of having an on-staff electrical estimator.

After you sign and return our Service Agreement (per estimate basis) you make the bid documents available to Globe. We will provide you with a bill of material (see example below) and major quotes such as fixtures, gear and any major subcontractor.
We can distribute the bills of material to your supplier quotes or send them to you for distribution. We will create a list of work you will need to solicit sub-contractors to perform. We will provide a list of sub-contractors in your area who are qualified to provide such work.
When the take-off is complete we will give you a computerized summary (see the example below). This summary can be easily converted it to a workable budget. The summary will also have a total for all man hours and material dollars. We will provide a quote on a professionally written scope letter. We will also provide you with a list of inclusions and exclusions for insertion into your proposal.
You as the contractor will be responsible for providing us in a timely manner with all addendums, suppliers where you have accounts, and preferred sub-contractors. We will also need to know what specialized equipment you own and what you will need to rent such as trenchers and lifts. You will also be responsible for understanding and knowing the scope and whether you company has the resources to perform the project.
