LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Upon completing this section, you should be able to explain the estimating requirements for a construction project.
As project estimator, you will need to assemble information about various conditions affecting the construction of the project. This enables you to prepare a detailed and accurate estimate. Drawings should be detailed and complete. Specifications should be exact and leave no doubt as to their intent. Information should be available about local material, such as quarries, gravel pits, spoil areas, types of soil, haul roads and distances, foundation conditions, the weather expected during construction, and the time allotted for completion. You should know the number and types of construction equipment available for use. Consider all other items and conditions that might affect the production or the progress of construction.
The construction drawings are your main basis for defining the required activities for measuring the quantities of material. Accurate estimating requires a thorough examination of the drawings. You should carefully read all notes and references and examine all details and reference drawings. The orientation of sectional views should be carefully checked. Dimensions shown on drawings or computed figures shown from those drawings should be used preference to those obtained by scaling distances. inContinue Reading
