Join Christopher Randall for an in-depth discussion in this video Labor column notes, part of Construction Estimating Takeoff.
- [Instructor] Although we've been filling…in labor columns as we go along,…I thought it'd be good to reemphasize a few points.…First the labor column.…Most labor unit publications have different labor columns…to reflect the degree of difficulty…in installing the material.…They're usually something like normal,…difficult, and more difficult, or very difficult.…Take a look at this chart.…On the chart you'll see there's a description…of the material and the different degrees…of labor difficulty for the installation.…For instance, half inch Rigid Steel Conduit…installed under normal conditions has a labor factor…of 6.2 hours per hundred.…
Three inch Rigid Conduit will be installed at 28 hours…per hundred under difficult circumstances, and so on.…Notice this note at the bottom.…It tells us that if you're using similar material,…Aluminum threaded Conduit, the labor units are almost…the same except for we add 18%.…Just be sure when you're copying over…your labor units to your takeoff sheet…that you're using the correct ones.…
