Assuming no prior knowledge of blueprint reading and mathematics, this manual guides readers through a material quantity survey, the conversion of the material quantities to a monetary value, and the addition of labor and equipment costs, using actual construction plans as a reference. The volume outlines estimating procedures and mathematics, efficiency and productivity, earthwork, concrete and masonry, structural and miscellaneous steel, wood and plastics, doors and windows, thermal and moisture protection, finishes, mechanical and plumbing, electrical, and the bid package, contract, and follow-up. For estimators and project managers.

Digital-media expert and database designer extraordinaire Larry Ullman has written two other popular books in this series: PHP for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide and PHP Advanced for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickPro Guide.
