Capitalize On Your Experience!

MACC Estimating Group offers an entrepreneurial opportunity for leaders in the construction industry to breakout on their own, become their own boss, and grow their own business by becoming an independent estimator with our group.

We Help Architects

We are more than estimators, we are former contractors helping architects get what they want for, from, in, or out of their projects.  We do that by bringing decades of construction experience, an intimate knowledge of general contracting, and a desire to produce a better outcome for architects during the design phase.

Are You...


Grateful for the opportunity, grateful for our clients.


Giving value before expecting anything in return.


Able to get the right answer.


Do what we say, sometimes more, never less.

If so, then you share the MACC Estimating Group core values! That's an important place to start.


"I used to lead 175 employees and spend 12+ hours a day and most Saturdays at the office. Now I have a business with no employees, and I work from home with time for other things, and keep almost everything I make." - Jim Paras, Founder of MACC Estimating

Frequently asked questions:

Yes and No. Each estimator has the freedom of movement with his clients. However, it is expected that each estimator is an expert in the market(s) that they serve.  You won’t be providing value to your client pursuing or following a project to a market that you do not know.

Generally speaking – No. Each estimator is required to enter into an agreement with MACC. MACC’s purpose is to provide life changing opportunities to former contractors – not build a consultancy firm. However, it is possible to create a co-venture with other estimators to share various expenses or to just work and learn together.
