MTI is committed to effective cost management that translates into reduced and controlled project costs while maintaining quality. Delivering a project within budget requires more than cost estimating – it requires Cost Management. Cost Management means partnering with Owners & Architects to meet specific requirements, while efficiently guiding the process of sound decision-making.

MTI provides Conceptual Cost Planning as one of the first steps allowing Owners to validate project budgets and secure funding.

Before embarking project design, MTI reconciles scope versus budget to ensure that the project parameters are clearly defined for all team members.

Throughout the design phases, MTI works as an integral member of the project team to analyze components, identify potential cost issues and develop solutions to maintain project quality while eliminating redesign and cost overruns.

DG Frondorf and Associates, LLC


DG Frondorf and Associates, LLC was founded by Daniel G. Frondorf in 1999. Recognizing a need for accurate estimating and related technical services among small and mid-sized sitework contractors, Daniel provided services to support these already overworked contractor staffs, allowing them to do the hands-on work required. Because of the demand for these services, DGFA has grown to meet the needs of its clients, and has become a unique family enterprise that is used over and over by companies both small and large. DGFA has helped companies with estimates on every significant construction project in the Greater Cincinnati area for more than 15 years.

Our clients have changed through the years, too, and now include not only contractors, but architects, engineers, construction management firms, developers, property owners and other consultants. Whatever your estimating, budgeting and project-specific data needs, DGFA provides you with accurate, complete, timely, and friendly service.

CMT Consultants, LLC

CMT Consultants, LLC has over 34 years of estimating experience in the industry – 22 years as a mechanical contractor and 12 years in construction management consulting.

The owner has earned the recognition of being named a Certified Professional Estimator (CPE) through the American Society of Professional Estimators. With the distinction of CPE, the estimator must be ethical at all times and provide an estimate that is within their skills.

The estimate is a tool for the owner/design team to ensure the project design is within budget and minimizes their risk as much as possible. An accurate estimate provides the entire design team a comfort level in knowing that their design is within the owner’s budget.

Each estimate submission is treated as a new project and will be tailored as needed for the owner’s requirements or special project elements. Some of these elements are: project phasing, wage rates, site conditions, overtime/premium time, compressed schedules, additions and/or renovations. All documents are reviewed and questions/assumptions are vetted prior to completion.

Each estimate will provide as much details/breakdown as possible. Included will be design contingencies, escalation to project midpoint, supervision, overhead and profit.

CMT Consultants, LLC has also attended the Virginia DGS/Bureau of Capital Outlay Management CPSM Seminar and is familiar with the estimates, estimating format and procedures required on Virginia DGS projects.

CMT Consultants, has experience in office buildings, K-12 schools, higher education, retirement/assisted living center, data centers, labs, hospitals, government buildings, parking garages, museums, recreation centers, public safety centers, courthouses, police stations, fire stations, etc.
