Course Description


BLC-295 - Construction Estimating 2 (3 credits)
Prerequisite(s): PREREQUISITES: BLC294
This is an advanced general construction estimating course designed for the building industry to further prepare students to enter jobs which require skills used in the development of complete construction estimates by the quantity survey method. Emphasis will be placed on pricing of direct labor costs, materials, equipment, subcontractor costs, project overhead, and markup. Each student will prepare cost estimates for construction materials that normally fall under the responsibility of a general contractor; electrical and mechanical estimating are beyond the scope of this course. Students will adjust portions of a national construction cost database by substituting local labor and material costs. A discussion of green materials and LEED Certification will be reviewed in the course.
