DESCRIPTION

CONSTRUCTION ESTIMATING TRAINING

Construction estimation is the foundation that successful construction companies are built on. Without a good estimate construction becomes nothing more than a game of chance, hoping that there is enough money at the end to pay the bills.

However, a good estimate creates a road map that can be followed for the duration of the project. By taking into account all the components required, a specific, dependable plan is created which can be easily tracked throughout the project lifecycle. This allows for accurate scheduling, smoother execution and predictable profits.

By the end of this course participants will be able to:

o Read and interpret construction drawings
o Interpret specifications and break them into scopes of work
