Source: uWorkin



Simonds Homes, part of the ASX listed Simonds Group, has developed an enviable reputation over 70 years as one of Australia’s largest and best home builders. Our mission is to provide our clients with well designed, high quality homes delivered on time and on budget. We are gearing up our Projects Business to increase our participation in the rapidly growing government housing sector.


Working with senior management, the Project Estimating and Tender Manager will play a key role in our newly formed Projects Team, based at our head office on St Kilda Rd. The role will develop and manage the organisation’s ability to profitably tender on and undertake large scale housing projects for major developer or government department clients, which are governed by AS Design and Construct contracts. The role is to develop and lead the estimating team to ensure all required project estimates (tenders / contracts / variations / selections / BOQs) are produced in accordance with contractual obligations and company standards. It’s a fast paced environment with a focus on getting results on time.

Key accountabilities include:

  • Scrutinizing Request For Tender (RFT) documentation to develop a clear understanding of Principal’s Project Requirements (PPR) including all drawings, engineering, reports, specification schedules and marketing material, to ensure our tender costings and submissions accurately incorporate those requirements.
  • Building up accurate & reliable project costing sheets.
  • Providing recommendations to senior management regarding tender submissions.
  • Attending production planning meetings to ensure resources can meet production targets.
  • Ensure on-time completion of project estimating tasks - tender / sales estimates / contract / variation / production estimates.
  • Liaising with our Procurement Manager to ensure arrangements are in place for supply of materials and labour as required by the contract documentation.
  • Ensure the estimating team assists stakeholders to resolve any documentation related issues that arise during the construction period.
  • Identify causes of margin erosion and take actions to prevent recurrence by incorporating continuous improvement strategies into QA processes.
  • Provide leadership to our Projects Estimating Team.

Essential Requirements:

  • Minimum 5 years’ estimating experience in the domestic medium density building industry.
  • Knowledge of National Construction Code (NCC) building regulations and other relevant Australian Standards.
  • Exposure to construction of residential housing projects under AS D&C contracts.
  • Leadership and management experience.
  • Ability to interpret construction documentation.
  • Knowledge of Timberline/WMS/Framework.
  • Proven ability to solve problems, mitigate risks and resolve conflict.
  • Demonstrated planning, organisational and time management skills.
  • Excellence in written and verbal communication.
  • Demonstrated business acumen.

  • A variety of career opportunities and subsidised training through our very own, Builders Academy Australia (BAA)
  • Fantastic benefits across a wide range of products and services including a generous discount on our award-winning homes as well as all the great things that go in them
