Join Christopher Randall for an in-depth discussion in this video Length based measurements, part of Construction Estimating Takeoff.
- [Instructor] Some materials are not simply counted,…they are measured in distance…using a ruler or rolling scale.…These are called length measurements.…In this example I am measuring long runs…of ceiling hung cable tray.…I measure a run, highlight or mark it to remind…myself it's already counted,…and then when I'm done I'll add the measurement,…the labor units, to the take off sheet.…(beeping)…There.…
The measurement is 386 feet.…I'll simply enter it onto the take off sheet.…12 inch cable tray.…386 feet.…The price here is 712 dollars…per hundred.…And the labor to install this…is 19.25 hours…per hundred.…
That's an example of a length-based measurement.…
