AWI Advanced Estimating Seminar - Iowa / Nebraska - November 2016

Hosted by the AWI Iowa/Nebraska Chapter

As a linchpin of the successful outcome of projects, the estimate can “make” or “break” your company.

- Learn advanced techniques for estimating complex projects, fine-tune your analyses of job costing, and justify the added value your company can offer for your proposed price while you beat the competition.

- Devise an effective process for determining your costs and marking up the costs to meet your overhead and make a profit.

- Advance your skills for gathering all the special considerations that may influence the job.

The faculty guides attendees through unique woodworking problems and leads them to real-world solutions.

Sessions include:
- To Bid or Not To Bid
- Buyouts
- Cost Book
- Finishing
- Delivery
- Installation
- True Cost of Operations
- Hand Off To PM
- Eight (8) real projects that have been completed by the presenters companies. We give an overview of the projects, then the attendees do material take offs and put labor hours to the individual projects. These are for the most part small portions of a larger project, but very detailed.
