Construction Estimating Using Excel This course is of particular interest anybody involved with construction. Very little knowledge of Excel is needed. This course covers many different spreadsheets needed to do a quantity take-off on many different construction materials:

  • Concrete

  • Finishes
  • Masonry
  • Metals
  • Openings
  • Paving
  • Thermal & Moisture Protection
  • Wood

The take-off is performed using many different units:

  • Cubic feet, cf, ft3, cu ft
  • Cubic yards, cu yd, yd3
  • Feet, ft
  • Square feet, sf, ft2, sq ft
  • Tons
  • Pounds, lbs, #
  • Linear feet, lf
  • Square, sq
  • Foot board measure, fbm
  • Gallons, gal

We will use only a few commands, like border and fill color. We will use only a few built-in functions like SUM and PRODUCT. I have included an installation program that will install all the files covered in the course plus some additional blank forms.
