The seventh edition continues to build on the strong foundation of the previous editions. The need for estimators to understand the theory behind quantification is critical and must be fully understood prior to performing any computerized estimating. This underlying premise has been one of the guiding principles that began with Mr. Dagostino and continues with the current author.

This edition uses extensive examples and exercises to demonstrate methodology and to the organization of the estimate. Estimating is an art that relies heavily on the judgment of the person performing the takeoff. A person’s estimating skills can only be developed with practice; therefore, the reader is encouraged to work the example problems and apply the skills taught in this book. Since the estimate is used throughout the project, the assumptions and methodologies assumed must be documented and organized so that subsequent users will have access to this knowledge.

The intent of this revision is to expand the estimating material covered by this book and to bring other material in line with current industry practices. The following is a list of key changes and additions that have been made to this edition: The discussion of the different types of estimates (e.g., square foot and parametric estimates) has been expanded in Chapter 1.

 ➦A chapter discussing the project comparison method, square-foot estimating, and assembly estimating has been added at the end of the book as Chapter 21.

The term “specifications” has been replaced with “project manual” when referring to the book that accompanies the plans and includes the contract documents and other information as well as the technical specifications. 

The term “specifications” is used to refer to the technical specification. This was done to be consistent with practices of the Construction Specifications Institute.

A chapter providing an overview of the use of computers in construction estimating has been added as Chapter 5.

A discussion of how to determine labor burden has been added to Chapter 7 (formerly Chapter 6).

A discussion of how to determine labor productivity has been added to Chapter 7 (formerly Chapter 6).

 The term “work hour” has been replaced with the more commonly used term “labor hour” throughout the book.

The use of published estimating data, such as RS Means, has been added to Chapters 7 and 21.
