Join Christopher Randall for an in-depth discussion in this video Keyed notes and directives, part of Construction Estimating Takeoff.
- [Instructor] The pictures of the drawings…are not the only place that tells us…where the material is included in the job.…Sometimes, there are notes and other written directives…that instruct us to provide…and install material or other labor.…For example, remember the trench details…on the exercise file AE5.04?…They told us how deep and wide the trench was.…Let's take a look at that.…Here, you will see a note on the top left-hand part…of the detail that tells us to include…a Mylar caution tape with the trench.…
This is exactly what I'm talking about.…We know the distance of this trench…is 120 feet, so we will include…a separate takeoff item for 120 feet of caution tape.…It is important that you read all…the notes and directives on your drawings,…so that when they direct you to include materials…or labor not shown in the pictures,…you can do that and remain accurate.…
