WALTER K. ZIEGLER
Vice President of Estimating and Purchasing
ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Walter oversees the preparation of all budgets and bid proposals. Pricing a job requires a thorough understanding of construction. Walter develops a complete knowledge of construction documents, determines which trade groups will be involved, and provides an accurate and competitive price for the work.
Walter and his staff of estimators are also responsible for pricing and negotiating contracts with subcontractors. A comprehensive understanding of each subcontractor’s scope of work and scheduling concerns is essential. Throughout the duration of the project, Walter monitors the subcontractors’ performance to ensure that they are providing the highest quality of workmanship with the appropriate manpower to complete their job on schedule.
Walter, like all Gallin employees, goes out of his way to build a collaborative relationship with his clients. By thoroughly understanding clients and their priorities, Walter is able to give them what they want at a price that fits their budget.
