I am looking to hire someone to assist me a construction cost estimator/quantity surveyor) with putting together a system to assist in putting together construction estimates.
I currently have many different excel spreadsheets with my own cost estimates from past jobs we have completed. When I start a new project I constantly refer to many different estimates I have completed before (excel spreadsheets) to copy and paste the data.
My goal is to do two things:
1) In a simple manner, keep track of past job costs we have used for Material & Labor
2) Being able to quickly input this onto a spreadsheet so I can then configure the quantities.
Please present to me in a basic manner what methods you use and feel free to email me questions before submitting a proposal, I am obviously looking for another cost estimator / quantity surveyor to do this type of work as they are the only ones who could understand my goal here.
Thank you for your time

How old is the data that you are trying to organize? If current, I would forego Excel and do something in Google Drive with google apps scripts so that it would be universally available and current information.
