Educating Construction Professionals
Attendees of this five-day course will learn to better understand the methods by which sitework construction cost estimates are developed. This course is designed for new estimators, more experienced estimators who have never been exposed to formal training, and other construction professionals. This course will cover all the tasks required to develop an accurate sitework estimate. Students learn to calculate work quantities from engineering drawings, correctly adjust for material swell and shrink, assemble efficient crews, and determine productivity.
This course consists of a full week of hands-on training in sitework estimating. It will enormously improve and complement your knowledge and experience in sitework construction. Learn the concise and proper methods required to prepare thorough, organized cost estimates. Learn how to avoid the many problems associated with this complex and demanding scope of work. The training provided will enable you to effectively evaluate the extreme range of sitework price quotations that are often received by the general contractor. This course will provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to assemble and organize all elements of an accurate sitework estimate. Testing and practical application of the skills you will learn is accomplished throughout this course with a series of hands-on exercises and problem-solving challenges and discussions.
Class size is limited to 12 registrants.
Upon completion of the course students will be able to put into practice real-life methods for determining job costs, and use essential formats for clearly estimating equipment, labor, material and other service costs related to completing a project. They will be able to assess and decide how a variety of physical site complexities may affect the estimated cost of a project and use methods to counteract these variances. Students will be able to better identify and interpret general site conditions, special conditions and technical specifications associated with sitework projects.
