Scheduled Dates Coming Soon!

Experience 3 days of hands-on training in civil estimating. This course is designed for beginning to intermediate estimators, as well as any construction professional who needs to refresh their estimating skills. Participants use concise and proper methods to prepare thorough, organized cost estimates. Participants gain knowledge and skills from real world instruction by experienced estimator.  Practical application using hands-on exercises from real examples will guide participants through critical problem solving and discussion.

LEARN HOW TO:

  • Accurately quantify earthwork, pipework, and paving.
  • Properly adjust quantities for swell, shrink, subsidence, and waste.
  • Select appropriate equipment for a cost-effective estimate.
  • Determine accurate productivity rates for projects.
  • Calculate the production cost estimate of a project by using the crew analysis method.
  • Analyze and apply appropriate overhead markup.
  • Compute labor cost and labor burden applications.
  • Find efficient takeoff shortcuts on site and road plans.
  • Use techniques for making bidding more profitable
  • Understand WBS Structure with applications to your estimate

ESTIMATING EARTHWORK

Minimize your estimating earthwork risk by increasing your estimating knowledge and skills. This course will teach the estimator correct guidelines for verifying quantities, adjusting soil swell and shrink, selecting efficient equipment and determining productivity using numerous real-life examples

ESTIMATING PIPEWORK

Discover the principles of underground utility construction cost estimates. This course shows participants how to improve costing, pricing, and production techniques of underground utility contractors on private and government projects.

ESTIMATING ROADWORK & PAVING

Learn the primary aspects of estimating roadwork and paving construction. Participants will hone skills necessary to assemble a detailed and accurate estimate using paving and roadwork items.  Whether unit cost or lump sum, road project or site paving, practical experience is gained using hands-on exercises and problem-solving challenges.

EQUIPMENT, LABOR, OVERHEAD COSTS

Calculate real-world direct costs and markup costs for the contractor the proper way.  The estimator will learn and receive all the tools necessary for accurate costs to use in their estimates using industry proven methods.
