About Us
Trusted professionals engaging on your behalf.

At Carroll Estimating, we know you want to do more profitable builds with ease. In order to do that, you need to spend more time focussing on your builds.

The problem is there’s a shortage of resources, and the cost of everything is constantly changing, making it hard for you to keep track of your finances which may feel overwhelming and frustrating.

We get it. We know how tight margins are. And we grew up on building sites like yours. With a team of six, innovative costing technology and a record for never having missed a tender deadline, we know we can help you prevent these challenges from eating away at your profits.

What our clients say

A lot of our time is spent tendering, procuring suppliers and contractors, preparing valuations, and negotiating final accounts with design teams. We now have Carroll Estimating handle most of that so we can focus on our 4-5 jobs at once.
Sean Regan
Managing Director
We were finding the measurement of projects very time-consuming. Carroll Estimating helps us save us time. They've been a pleasure to work with because they are visible on site, reply quickly to queries, and everything is done promptly. We'd highly recommend working with them.
Martin Murphy
Managing Director
Before working with Carroll Estimating we were pricing all our tenders after working hours and at the weekends while meeting clients also. Carroll Estimating goes to site and engages with our clients from the very start of the project to completion. Carroll Estimating helped us save time, win more tenders, and we always know our live costs on every project.
Patrick O’ Toole
Having a Contractor's QS onboard with us has made a huge difference in the last year. Carroll Estimating are visible on all our sites every week, they see the progress, and they value the progress. To us, having a team of surveyors at the end of the phone, with a prompt reply helps us focus on the build at hand.
Brian McCarthy
Although we have in-house Quantity Surveyors, our tendering department can sometimes be overwhelmed with tenders; that’s where Carroll Estimating has come in to help us on numerous occasions. “When they say they take control of the tender process, they mean it. From procurement of subcontractors and suppliers, to getting quotations on all aspects of a build, they have helped us be successful on a number of tenders.”
Michael Duggan
Before we used Carroll Estimating, we just added rates to a Bill of Quantities; that has changed with Carroll Estimating applying their knowledge on heavy civils works. The breaking down of rates into plant, labour hours and material costs has helped us be conscious of our time and costs on each of our sites. A quick call and the Carroll Estimating team can easily tell us the cost of our machinery on site.”
