Accurate repair and remodeling estimating involves a lot more than simply pricing a quantity take-off. It requires a real understanding of how a project will actually be built. This two-day class is practical training that addresses the vital importance of understanding the SCOPE of projects to arrive at accurate cost estimating. The single most important credential that the estimator takes to the job is experience.
The “big picture” estimating process, including an overview on quantity take-off & project pricing will be followed by a focus on the front-end process. In two informative days that combine classroom discussion with hands-on skill building and real-life estimating practice, you’ll learn how to identify and quantify the unique requirements of each repair and remodeling construction project - from restrictions on stockpiling materials to matching existing construction. . .sequencing to working around ongoing operations. And you’ll understand how by making Scope of Work integral to the estimating process, you can boost the accuracy of every estimate you prepare.
The role of RSMeans data is valuable in the construction estimating process but the accuracy of the aggregate project cost is only as good as the Scope of Work to which they are applied. Good cost data is irrelevant, if the estimator is lacking an accurate scope of work for a project. The successful estimator is one who has taken the opportunity to learn as much about the building process as possible.
Taught by the estimating and engineering experts of RSMeans, Assessing Scope of Work for Facilities Construction is appropriate for anyone responsible for designing, budgeting or bidding for facilities repair & remodeling and maintenance projects. It’s particularly suited to:
