Join Christopher Randall for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of a real-world example, part of Learning Trimble Accubid Pro.
- [Instructor] Now let's take a look…at an actual working estimate file,…and see how all the entries have come together…to create an actual estimate price.…Starting with the takeoff screen,…you can see all the different lines of takeoff…and how they're broken down by system, phase and area.…Here's the lighting,…distribution,…and so on.…Next, the extension screen.…
I have all the different lines of entry.…They're all added up together.…Prices have been selected.…Items without prices that are shown in red are quoted.…At the very bottom of the screen, you'll see the totals.…Material total and labor total.…Next, on the direct labor, I've picked my crew size.…
The hours have been calculated.…There's a total cost of labor at the bottom.…Incidental labor.…We'll need some truck drivers on this job.…We'll also have a non-working foreman.…This is hours not related to installation or material,…but more supervision.…There is a slight labor factor.…This is a remote location, so I added 2.5%…of 100% of the direct labor hours.…All of that's calculated on this screen.…
