A construction estimate forecasts the costs required for a construction project. It is a list of materials and activities that are required for a construction project. It includes material quantities along with unit material rates and labor hours. It is just like a BOQ and contains a list of all the construction materials along with their costs. Construction estimates are useful for bidding and also help in controlling costs during the executing phase of the project.
The first step is to measure the material required for the construction project. Measuring the material quantities is called “take-off” in construction. After having a list of materials, we need to put the unit costs and then multiply them with the material quantities. This will give us the total cost of each line item. Finally we sum-up all the costs in order to get the final estimate of the construction project.
There are 5 fundamental types of construction estimates based on accuracy. These include;
