Few Architects, Engineers or Contractors escape the almost daily task of estimating construction, and other costs. Requests for such estimates often come at a time when all the information that is needed is not readily available. This one hour online course offers some tips and tricks for coming up with the "quick and dirty" estimate on a wide variety of projects. Sources of information outside your own office can often be tapped and other ways to get reliable costs and reasonable contingencies are included. If estimating costs is any part of your practice, you may well find this brief overview of great help. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
