Estimating Building Construction
Attendees of this five-day course will be fully prepared to work as estimators for contractors bidding institutional or commercial building projects. Upon completing this course, students will be able to accurately take-off and summarize work quantities from architectural drawings. Students will learn to apply the correct costs for both labor and materials, and will leave this course having prepared an accurate estimate for a complete commercial project. Students attending this course attain a level of proficiency that might otherwise take six months or more to achieve with only on-the-job training.
In just five days, attendees of this course will learn how to produce accurate detail estimates of commercial buildings. Mechanical, electrical, sitework and other specialty trades will be estimated using comparative appraisal estimating techniques. Students attending this course will develop the underlying skills needed to create and organize accurate estimates. Math and takeoff skills necessary for estimating the general construction trades are covered in detail in this course. Different types of drawings needed to visualize the building and its components are also covered in detail.
