Project Estimator

Daniel Rakes


Daniel has always known he would work in construction. Back home in Delaware, Daniel got his start cleaning up construction job sites while still in high school. It wasn’t long before he was working with framing crews and picking up the trade as fast as his foreman could task him.  Fast forward to university and he’s studying architectural engineering and construction management. In a fortunate turn for Collier Construction,  Daniel eventually decided to move south to be near his siblings living in Nashville.

As a project estimator, Daniel is constantly expanding his knowledge and skillset to build better budgets. His time as a warranty manager and superintendent for Collier are invaluable and give him a better understanding of what goes into construction. You will also find him working hand and hand with the designer and superintendents to make sure they have everything they need out in the field day to day.

”One thing about me is I am not a huge talker. I am a good listener. I work hard to organize information people give me in meetings and emails and turn it into clear concise budgets and documents.”

When Daniel is not working you’ll find him spending time with his lovely wife, Gianna, and his son James, you’ll find him in his garage making stuff for their home, or you may even see him in Coolidge Park playing spikeball. Daniel and Gianna spend their weekends giving back to the community via their church’s youth program.
