CONS-1004Construction Estimating Fundamentals

Before dealing with the specifics of construction estimating, it is important for the student to have an understanding of the pre-construction phases of a project. This course will first provide an overview of topics such as stakeholders, project delivery methods, the design process and contract documents. The foundation for any cost estimate is an accurate quantity take-off, so the course will focus on a few sample trade areas. Then students will apply prices to some of the quantities resulting in examples of project direct costs. Students will also be exposed to some of the expenses that make up the indirect costs for a project. The final topic will be the bidding process and related documentation. 

Other Information

This course, if taken in addition to "Construction Project Mgmt:  Basic Principles", is equivalent to "CIV2201 Project Administration"  and is a credit in Architectural Engineering Technology, Sturctural Engineering Technology, and Building Design CAD Technology.
