Construction Estimator Jobs: Future Employment

The arrival of opportunities for estimators in construction, including highway, electrical, concrete and other cost estimators, are due to increase with actual job numbers likely to fair better than for other fields in construction. This is expected to occur through the year 2013 and well into the 2014. Demand for cost estimators will depend on geographic location of employment, and especially for them, specialty within the field, among several other factors and influences.

Positions are expected to increase at a growth rate, for the decade ending 2020, of 36% going by The Bureau of Labor Statistics and this is indeed high among averages. Overall, estimators that are involved in residential projects will probably have better prospects than those in the commercial sector. This, based on residential construction figures recorded to the end of 2012 as compared with commercial. Commerical estimators will also be subject to funding distribution and budget cuts due to the national debt, while at the same time being relied upon heavily for both feasibility studies and those projects placed under scrutiny.
Prospective employees, or estimators who are currently working in defense-related projects will likely be most affected. While segments such as health and security should fair better. Transportation, including uilities, roadwork and bridges, however, will more or less fall along with the civil segment as priorities come to occur. Surely the status of the nations basic infrastructure will determine either the benefit or detriment of their employ. Much will be determined by just how much the country undertakes any major new development, maintenance and repair projects.

Demand for estimators will also involve the ongoing ability to fill positions from those exiting the field, those transferring, such as from engineering and construction purchasing, and those seeking such higher paying positions.

For AEC, trade, management, supervisory and other professional and executive positions for the contractor, and building professionals.
