Q: How do you evaluate projects? Can you do a separate evaluation of the project itself, before bidding on the work?

A: Absolutely. We always start by estimating the workload, setting priorities and raising questions about potential problems. Sometimes we recommend that a separate feasibility study be carried out before creating a detailed plan and budget. This ensures that the project’s pricing works within your budget, including contingencies for additional work outside the scope.
