Tech/Engineering - Architecture / costing
French term or phrase: économiste
Hi, I'm doing a job that involves a list of all the different kinds of functions in an architect's office. I know what an economiste in this sense does [from my own dealings with my architect on a renovation]. He/she is the person in charge of developing a costing for the project based on average costs/charges, and this is what the selection of the bids from the RFP is compared to.

But what's the job denomination in EN?
Needed today asap ...
