This two-day course teaches attendees how to quickly deliver accurate square foot estimates using limited budget and design information. The seminar utilizes the RSMeans electronic database Square Foot Construction Cost.
RSMeans has created a unique “building assemblies/square foot cost approach” that is flexible and shows attendees how to create a very reliable preliminary and systems electronic estimates using bare-bones design information — basic building use requirements, budget, building code, building type. Workshop sessions provide model square foot estimating problems and other skill-building exercises. Attendees are encouraged to learn from each other by bringing organization-specific problems and examples. The seminar instructor uses these to illustrate important points and achieve learning objectives. Courses can be custom-crafted to meet specific organizational goals.
