How To Streamline And Ensure Accuracy In Bids?

Hi guys I've been lurking for a while here but finally decided to create an account and post. So my problem is I am quickly being overwhelmed with the ability to get large accurate bids done. I'm a half of a two-man remodeling operation we've been in business for about 3 years now. We have been self teach ourselves the business side of things as we go along. So my question is this, usually for a bid I measure everything out and calculate everything down to the dollar. But I just had four bids for large extensive remodeling projects. Basically from the studs up. I'm having troubles coming up with accurate numbers for a project that has so many pieces. What's a faster way that I can do this?

For that kind of work?

I would guess you are pretty much stuck piecing it out, at least most of it. So many variables. It isn't like a pole barn or slab where you can basically toss out your square foot price and call it a day.
