Building Construction Courses - Principles and Practices of Estimating for Construction and Design Professionals


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

  • Focus on basic principles and practices used in construction project estimating
  • Study the four primary estimating approaches and learn the background information regarding how and when each should be applied
  • Share experiences and ideas as you attend with chief estimators, staff estimators, project managers, facility managers, project architects, and engineers

Target Audience

This course focuses on the introductory knowledge and the basic skills necessary for successful construction project estimating. You should be comfortable with basic algebra and have a beginning understanding of building and construction procedures. The course is not intended for experienced estimators. Our objective is to present the requisite information and to demonstrate effective techniques for entry-level estimators so that they can become more proficient and productive.

Civil Engineering Outline
The course covers the following topics:
  • Project Delivery Approaches and Their Effect on Estimating
  • Types of Estimates and Their Accuracy
  • Useful Techniques for Take-offs: Determining Quantities
  • Avoiding Estimating Errors
  • Factors that Determine Variations in Estimates
  • Developing an Estimate
  • Computer-based Estimating
  • Contractors Perspective: Estimates and the Bid Process
