CET-120 - Construction Estimating

2 credits

This course is an introduction to the detailed and challenging profession of construction estimating. Students will learn how the wide range of construction materials, construction methods and business practices impact the overall cost of a construction project. Students will use plans and specifications from a recently built construction project to produce a detailed construction estimate for that project and better understand the wide range of direct, indirect and general overhead expenses that impact the cost of a project. Students will be introduced to a variety of cost data resources used in professional practice and will work on an independent bid proposal for a commercial construction project culminating in a bid opening. Students will build on the technical drawing skills mastered in ABT-150 .
