The Table of Allowance (TOA) for the NMCBs
contain specific information on the quantities and
characteristics of construction equipment available to
the NMCBs. The TOA-01 contains equipment and tool
kit descriptions. Kit descriptions are presented by their
section and numerical sequence as listed in the NMCB
TOA-01 followed by assembly numbers, as shown in
figure 2-23. Also, refer to appendix B of the P405 for
the complete listing of tool kits and equipment.
Preliminary labor estimates and detailed labor
estimates are the two types covered in the following
Use preliminary labor estimates to establish
budget costs and to project labor requirements for
succeeding projects and deployments. The estimates
are prepared from limited information, such as general
descriptions or preliminary plans and specifications,
that contain little or no detailed information. In some
eases, you can make a comparison with similar
facilities of the same basic design, size, and type of
construction. A good preliminary estimate varies less
than 15 percent from the detailed estimate.
The NAVFAC P-437, Facilities Planning Guide,
volume 1 (drawings on CD ROM) and volume 2
(materials list on diskette) is an excellent source for
preliminary estimates. This manual can be used to find
estimates for a wide range of facilities and assemblies
most commonly constructed by the NCF. The NAVFAC,
