Project Estimating II
Students will complete quantity takeoffs and pricing for an office/factory building (design provided) and for a modular residential building of their own design. Design elements may include, but not be limited to, site work, excavation, backfill, carpentry, concrete work, and masonry. Students develop estimates at different levels of detail, with a focus on contractors and subcontractor's estimates, utilizing manual and computer aided methods, including, but not limited to, MC2 ICE estimating software, and Microsoft Excel. Students will understand differences between databases, spreadsheets and manual methods. Interim deadlines will be set for completion of the various stages and meeting the target deadlines will be a meaningful component in the evaluation.
