How to Estimate Remodeling Construction Costs

Cost estimating software assists estimate remodeling contractors calculate material and labour costs and produce detailed remodeling proposals. As competition for projects continues to increase and more contractors are pressured to deliver fixed-bid work, buyers are adopting modern construction estimating systems, including Web-based systems, to deliver accurate and professional proposals.

At the same time, owners are using these systems to create their own home remodeling estimates and double check the accuracy of project bids they receive. When we speak to residential contractors, the two primary criteria they have for estimating systems are: 1) that it be easy to use; and, 2) that it is affordable.

There are a number of systems that meet these criteria, but they vary in their feature breadth and sophistication. Below is a table of the top core modules you should look for as you evaluate home estimating software.

Spreadsheets for Civil Engineering

Estimators used columnar sheets of paper to organize the take off and the estimate itself into rows of items and columns containing the description, quantity and the pricing components. Some of these were similar to accounting ledger paper. They became known as green sheets or spreadsheets.

With the advent of computers in business, estimators began using spreadsheet applications like VisiCalc, Lotus 1-2-3, and Microsoft Excel to duplicate the traditional tabular format, while automating redundant mathematical formulas.

Many construction cost estimators (over 55%[citation needed]) continue to rely primarily upon manual methods, hard copy documents, and/or electronic spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel. While spreadsheets are relatively easy to master and provide a means to create and report a construction cost estimate and or cost models, their benefit comes largely from their ability to partially relieve estimators of mundane calculations. Accuracy, however, is not necessarily improved and productivity is not maximized. For example, data entry remains tedious and prone to error, formula errors are common, and collaboration and information sharing are limited.

In recent years as that access to information has been amplified, we have not seen the need to use all materials, all kinds of tools to gather information and why not to use such information on our behalf, the excel sheets are templates pre-designed than most professionals use in order to improve and accelerate their work, these excel sheets serve as templates, so you can use them again and again and it is only necessary to modify the input data, currently have prepared hundreds of templates excel for civil engineering, many of which are found in all versions of Excel.

Construction management & general contracting are useful for managing a construction project efficiently

General contracting and construction management are the inherent part of a construction project. Both of them are useful for coordinating and handling projects. But there are basic differences concerning the organizational structure, business relationships, and project entry points.

General Contracting: A general contractor deals with the supervision and management of a construction project. The general contractor accomplishes diversified functionalities as below :-
  • appoint and administer subcontractors
  • Correspond with and between subcontractors
  • Coordinate and plan all job from beginning to completion
  • Look into the matter so that subcontractors get payment in a timely manner
  • Organize all work to be completed with the project
  • Give updates and make contact with the client
The GC is an individual, partnership, corporation, or business body liable for controlling and executing construction related works. There are several well qualified peoples like supervisors, general labor, subcontractors as well as other trades who work in tandem with GC in construction projects. Generally the GC manages the complete project but he/she can also perform with a particular section ranging from the foundation or masonry.

On the basis of design suggested by the client, the GC generally works on a bid process. The client can appoint the GC depending on the low-priced bid, top qualifications, or other scale. Profit can be gained if the GC is capable of executing the project lower than the bid price. If the project contains unanticipated costs, the client will have to reimburse more, modify the project specs, or trim down the project's scope.

Construction Management: The duties and responsibilities of a construction manager are identical with the general contractor. However, the CM is not involved directly on the jobsite where there are general labors or other trade works. The CM plays a similar role of a project manager. The construction manager takes the responsibilities for the planning, coordination, and management of the project on the whole. The main functionality of the construction manager is to offer the client with a functional project.

A CM is appointed to a project prior to a GM generally joins. The CM contributes to the design progression; provide suggestions on desired features, specifications and materials chosen. The CM will frequently offer proposals useful for enhancing the value of the project upon completion and arranging the project for smooth running.

The construction manager performs on the basis of a percentage relating to the project costs. A CM is generally selected for qualifications over lowest price. A construction manager will employ the subcontractors and tradesmen generally via a bid process.

Civil Works Application Helps Get Rid of On-Site Errors

A new iOS and Android application named as CivilWorks aims to help managers and supervisors stay up to date with on-site civil construction activity.

Created by On-Site Civil Solutions, the user-friendly app lets forefront workers perform calculations, input data and email their results to those in charge when they need signing-off on critical work decisions.

Company director Shane Dodd said: Rework - and its lost productivity, ballooning timeframes and added costs - is a global problem. In fact, it is estimated that Australian contractors lose around $177 million-plus annually doing rework caused by on-site calculation errors and poor communication systems.

This application handles sewer main and drainage construction calculations, civil engineering calculations, road and civil construction formulas, and civil volume calculations.

Specially, it calculates converts and adjust grades, determines the correct values for setting reduced levels, new benchmarks and jump up heights. In addition, it performs basic area calculations, as well as cube, cylinder, stockpile and selects trench backfill volume calculations that you can set to include weight conversion factors specific to the stuff you are using.

The application is divided into five sections: Grade & Level Calculator; Area, Volume & Weight Calculator; Ground Conditions; Asset Recording; and Set Out a Point.

CivilWorks retains all the on-site data on-screen to make sure errors do not occur. Calculations, input data and results can then be emailed, at the touch of a button, to supervisors for approval, ordering and confirmation.

“Importantly,” Dodd says, “this email record also supports and promotes traceability, accountability and archiving for project management, which until now has been unachievable.”

The app is very easy to use, but On-Site Civil Solutions has provided an in-app link to handy You Tube instructional videos for those who need a bit of guidance.

While CivilWorks was originally designed for the civil construction sector — specifically, construction labourers, excavators and pipeline installers — the developer says it’s really a general ‘tradies tool’ and is also being used by farmers, landscapers, truck drivers and plumbers.

The app is free to download and gives you a limited free trial. After that, the service will cost you less than $10 a year to use.
