File Size :- 11.2 MB

Description 


NEW TO THIS EDITION :-
The intent of this revision is to expand the estimating material covered by this book and to bring other material in line with current industry practices. The following is a list of key changes and additions that have been made to this edition:
  • The discussion of the different types of estimates (e.g.,square foot and parametric estimates) has been
  • expanded in Chapter 1.
  • A chapter discussing the project comparison method,square-foot estimating, and assembly estimating has been added at the end of the book as Chapter 21.
  • The term “specifications” has been replaced with “project manual” when referring to the book that accompanies the plans and includes the contract documents and other information as well as the technical specifications. The term “specifications” is used to refer to the technical specification. This was done to be consistent with practices of the Construction Specifications Institute.
  • A chapter providing an overview of the use of computers in construction estimating has been added as Chapter 5.
  • A discussion of how to determine labor burden has been added to Chapter 7 (formerly Chapter 6).
  • A discussion of how to determine labor productivity has been added to Chapter 7 (formerly Chapter 6).
  • The term “work hour” has been replaced with the more commonly used term “labor hour” throughout the book.
  • The use of published estimating data, such as RS Means, has been added to Chapters 7 and 21.
