In the video I will teach you how to use Excel to build a worksheet for estimating projects for the small contractor. The end result is a very basic, but usable estimating template. I hope to make additional videos to expand on this template and build a complete system of estimating, proposals letters, tracking your hours and materials and invoicing the job. All your information about the job is in one worksheet. I am not selling a product and I am a contractor just like you. I just wanted to teach other contractors how to use Excel in estimating. If I get some interest in the video then I will continue to make more of them. If no one is interested then I'll just stop at one video.
Estimating an entire job couldn't be Easier. If you have ever tried to quote a job from a plan,you would know it can be a very tedious task. Normally you would have the plan in front of you with a pencil and a ruler but with BEAMS the whole process just got a lot easier. With CADImage Takeoff you can measure any plan whether it's for a house, electrical work or any other project that has a plan requiring measurements. Estimating a job used to take hours, now it can take significantly less just by clicking around on the screen. Simply load your plan into CADImage Takeoff (whether it be a Bitmap [.bmp], a Portable Network Graphic [.png] or a JPEG [.jpg] file), select the type of measurement you would like to make and you're away. Start clicking on the perimeter of a house to measure the ent...

Detailed steps of construction estimate work involved by a contractor before the winning of a bid. The proper thought process involved in acquiring remodeling contracts.
Watch as a simple concrete slab, modeled in Revit, is quickly converted into an estimate in Vico Office. The workflow starts by publishing and activating the model, interrogating the quantity takeoff, refining the quantities, and completing the consumption and waste factor inputs. In under 10 minutes we have the first iteration of the cost plan. The 5D workflow continues with constructability analysis, location breakdown structure, and scheduling.

http://www.guideverygood.com/building How to Estimate Building Materials for Home Construction When you're thinking about building a new home, cost is a major factor. While you can use design software with built-in estimators, it can't accurately foretell the fluctuating costs of materials in your community; it can only offer a ballpark estimate. To get a more accurate assessment, Break down the construction process into stages. 1. Figure foundation and flatwork costs by converting the project into cubic yards. 2. Use a linear foot measurement when estimating the dimensional lumber needed to frame the home. 3. Measure a sufficient amount of electrical wire to safely supply energy needs and satisfy applicable building codes. 4. Add up the number of doors and windows and look at di...

Tom Stephenson, Coordinator at the Centre for Construction & Engineering Technologies at George Brown College was interviewed at Construct Canada, part of The Buildings Show 2015, about best practices for estimating and scheduling construction projects. When it comes to the many scheduling software options with BIM integration on the market today, it’s not about what you use, but simply that you should use it. Tom emphasizes the benefits of carefully developing and continually updating a thorough schedule. It is critical to begin using these tools early on. When used effectively, they help project managers plan, monitor deadlines, manage issues and avoid stress to keep projects on track and deliver them on time. By being proactive, all team members will benefit fully from these types of...
