The ECA is pleased to introduce the Professional Estimating Group (PEG).  Formed in late 2017, this group is focused on bringing together and supporting the estimators, spec writers, quantity surveyors, and PMs who work hard to keep the project pipeline full!

Through special networking, mentoring, and professional-development events, the PEG will cultivate the business relationships and friendships that every professional needs to excel in their work. Spread the word to the estimators, spec writers, quantity surveyors, and PMs that you work with. Get involved in the PEG!

If your firm is an ECA member, there's no additional cost for joining the PEG. Email Daniel at to learn more or phone 780.483.1130.

Why PEG?

"Estimating is first contact: with the client, the designer, the trades, the suppliers.  Let’s build a community of relationships that inform us, connect us, and empower us to be better at what we do.  We are facing as an industry an economic reality not seen in a generation, how do we survive without community?  The PEG is where this community has started, and it will now thrive, and evolve."
