SE­NIOR ESTIMATOR

Australian House & Garden - - My Ideal House -

‘Tech­nol­ogy has changed the game mas­sively.’ Craig Cussen, site su­per­vi­sor

What does an estimator do? I’m the money man! It’s my job to es­ti­mate the cost of build­ing the house, to or­der ma­te­ri­als, deal with con­trac­tors and send out pur­chase or­ders. I have to keep on top of all the or­ders so that every­thing’s ready to go at the right time. I’ll be on site ev­ery day. How dif­fer­ent is this build to oth­ers? It’s very dif­fer­ent; there are ma­te­ri­als in this house that I haven’t dealt with or or­dered be­fore, so it’ll be a great ex­pe­ri­ence. How did you come into your line of work? I was go­ing to go into com­put­ing, but my un­cle sug­gested that I give this a try in­stead. I thought, “Ev­ery­one does com­put­ing, so I’ll give this a shot.”

I’ve been with Mir­vac for nearly eight years now and I’ve never looked back.
