Fundamentals of Construction Estimating

Fundamentals of Construction Estimating 

David J. Pratt

Preference :

Fundamentals of Construction Estimating is written to provide the reader with the resources necessary to learn how to estimate the construction costs of building projects following the methods employed by successful general contractors. The book is primarily intended for the person who is beginning to learn the process of construction cost estimating, whether he or she is a student taking a course in estimating at college or someone who has recently assumed estimating responsibilities in a construction organization. The text will also be of interest to construction managers, supervisors, and practicing estimators who, from time to time, may wish to refer to a source of estimating data or simply investigate how other estimators approach this subject.
