2010 National Construction Estimator (National Construction Estimator (W/CD))
(3 customer reviews)
58th Annual Edition - Current building costs for residential, commercial, and industrial construction.
You can estimate most construction jobs by relying on past experience to determine manhours and material prices. But sometimes a lucrative job comes along for work that you've never done before. How can you find reliable cost estimates for that type of work?
With the 2010 National Construction Estimator you'll find estimated prices for every type of construction job imaginable for residential, commercial or industrial work. Prices are included for common building material -- based on typical selling prices of building material dealers and wholesalers.
Estimated manhours are included with recommended crew sizes, and the total labor cost for installation of practically every construction item in existance. Wage breakdowns for 24 construction trades are provided, add the zip code into your computer with the disk enclosed and your wage rates are automatically adjusted in your estimate.
Assembly prices are also included on many items to help you quickly estimate the construction costs you need. Simply plug in the square or lineal feet and the estimate is finished. Then you can add any extras to make it more precise.
Includes a CD-ROM with an electronic version of the book with National Estimator, a stand-alone Windows estimating program, plus an interactive multimedia video that shows how to use the disk to compile construction cost estimates. You can print out the estimates you create or export them to QuickBooksPro for job costing. Revised annually.

might be ok
The main reason I wouldn't necessarily recommend this product is because of the CD that comes with it. When I installed the disk on my computer, I was alerted that there was a trojan on my computer, because of the disk.
The book itself is worth purchasing, but I'm not sure I'd chance putting the CD into my computer again.

Easy to use guide for estimating work across the country with the area modification factors. Makes estimating a new project quicker and more accurate which is good for the builder and property owner so there are no "surprises" for either party at the end of the job.
