Facilities Estimator & Construction Inspector

Department Info

Steven Hooker

Construction Specialist III

William Anthony

Construction Inspector


Facilities Planning Design and Construction has a fully dedicated estimator on staff.  Steve Hooker brings with him over thirty years of experience in construction and estimating.  We provide this service to help our customers with budgeting, seeking funding for construction projects and to assist with early scope development based on initial thoughts for a campus facility improvement.

We call this the Pre-estimate (“PRE”)

All PRE requests are developed based on site visits, information provided on the PRE form, any relevant ADA modifications required, as-built plans, and historical data from previous projects of similar scope.  Estimates are formulated using industry driven costing information and current market values specific to our region.

Requesting a PRE is the recommended method for obtaining cost information when seeking grant funding, donations, or HEAF monies, as the estimates prepared via this method are based on a broader definition of the project scope to be used for budgetary purposes. 


Construction Oversight

Facilities Planning Design and Construction has a fully dedicated construction inspector on staff.  Bruce Anthony has extensive experience in the construction industry.

Once a project enters into the construction phase, Bruce coordinates the construction effort to ensure a smooth construction operation.  He coordinates with the campus and the contractor through the project to ensure proper oversight of the daily activities on the site and to help keep the project on-time, safe and minimize disruption to the campus community.
