In the twenty years that I have been bidding construction projects, I have never had an estimator that was so precise and accurate. Palacio works the estimates down to the finest details. Confidence in cost estimating is what Palacio is about. I refuse to choose anyone else!

I have worked with Palacio Collaborative for over ten years on challenging projects. What I appreciate most about them is their experience and ability to read between the lines of early phase design packages to create robust, accurate cost models that stand up to scrutiny.
