GOAL:I seek to support one flooring company in Denver. I am a freelance commercial flooring estimator.

Seven years of commercial flooring estimating with Shaw/Spectra Contract Flooring Support of seven high volume salespeople estimated 13 million in sales per year Seven years of Callidus Estimating Software - Expert Level
Western regional Callidus trainer in the Spectra Contract Flooring Network Western regional technical support for the Spectra Contract Flooring Network Recognition of Excellence Award for the Shaw Western Region 2004
Recognition of Excellence Award for the Shaw Western Region 2006
I hosted a training seminar at the Spectra Denver office for new estimators needing to learn Callidus basics. After a week of training, I send them to their home offices where they were productive immediately.

Lastly, I solved a pattern problem with the Callidus software. Callidus does not handle pattern repeats well so I developed a work around that became very reliable.
The pattern solutions resulted in combining manual estimating techniques with software tools to result in accurate estimates for patterned carpet.

Spectra Contract FlooringDenver, CO
Estimating Manager

An absolute multitasking position, I provided estimating support for up to seven salespeople who produced near 14 million in sales per year. Responsibilities included the ability to absorb multiple construction documents and translate them into precise flooring estimates in a timely manner. The estimates ranged from TI projects to large multi-million dollar projects. The construction documents received were hand drawn sketches to complete construction documents. The most important part of my job was taking the logic of manual flooring estimating techniques and apply them to commercial flooring estimating software.

Beyond the in house estimating services, I also provided constant technical support to the office staff due to the fact that so many construction documents are obtained online. Outside our local office, I became the expert Callidus user for Spectra Contract Flooring at the national level so I supported numerous other Spectra estimators.

Sutton ConstructionAngel Fire, NM
Home Designer/Drafter

This job included working face to face with clients to design and draft luxury custom homes in the mountain resort of Angel Fire, New Mexico. I used AutoCAD and ArchiCAD software to design second homes for clients. Most of my clients lived out of state so effective long distance communication was essential. I constantly communicated with clients and local builders to develop the rough sketches into full construction documents ready for permitting and construction.
