Roadwork And Paving Estimating

Roadwork And Paving Estimating

Students will learn to accurately estimate roadwork and paving costs of all types. Using real sets of drawings, students will perform a variety of take-offs on various road, paving and parking lot projects. Students will apply material and labor costs to associated takeoffs to assemble a complete estimate using efficient and reliable estimating takeoffs. This course is designed to improve estimator productivity and increase equipment selection and costing knowledge. This course is ideal for road and highway contractors, asphalt and concrete pavers, commercial contractors and developers, and DOT employees.
