“How to Make a Good Estimate Look Even Better” was an article published in the August 2017 issue of EC&M magazine, that I wrote. It had such great reviews and response, I thought that I would expand on this subject.
I expanded this topic into a six-page article that is available on my website.
A brief outline of the article is as follows:
- What is Productivity?
- Labor Reporting
- Collecting the Labor Data
- Demotivators in Construction
- Motivators in Construction
- Methods of Improving Productivity
- What to Do?
Remember, estimating is expensive, poor estimating is costly, and quality estimating is profitable.
