Microsoft Excel based estimating program:

Work specific cost estimating spreadsheets all link to a BID PROPOSAL that calculates a lump sum dollar amount. It can also reflect breakout prices and separate costs for project Alternates.

The STRUCTURAL STEEL spreadsheet is a series of take-off work-sheets that calculate steel erection costs for single or multi-phase projects. Built in formulas calculate the cost of steel erection by the number of pieces erected per day. It shows the cost per ton of each work phase (columns, beams, joists etc) and can show, for comparison purposes only, costs per ton based on a simple built in unit price chart.

The MISC STEEL spreadsheet contains formulas that calculate installation costs. A guide number (unit price of familiar similar work) can be entered into each work activity work-sheet. This unit price calculates, for comparison only, the time allowed for the crew plus equipment to install at that designated cost per ton. The estimator enters the time he determines necessary for installation of each take-off item and the work-sheet calculates each unit price according to his choice.

The DECKING and SIDING spreadsheets calculates installation costs. A per square foot guide number can be entered into each work-sheet. This unit price shows the time allowed for the crew plus equipment to install at that designated cost per square foot. This guide number calculates the time allowed for installation at the specified unit price, depending upon the size of the area. For instance, by entering a guide number of .30 (per sq ft), the work-sheet will show that a crew of three men plus equipment can install 5,000 sq ft of decking in 14.7 hrs (depending upon wages and equipment rates). Likewise it will show that the same crew can install 2,000 sq ft of decking in 6.2 hrs at .35 per sq ft, 800 sq. ft. in 3 hrs at .42 per sq ft, or a very small area of 200 sq ft in 1.5 hrs at .83 per sq ft. Again, these crew hrs show up as guide numbers only, the estimator enters the amount of time he determines necessary for installation of each take-off area and the work-sheet calculates each unit price according to his choice.

The REBAR and PRE-ENGINEERED BLDG spreadsheets have built in formulas for calculating that specific type of work activity. These formulas work much like the calculations in the miscellaneous steel and decking spreadsheets, including the use of unit price guide numbers.

A self generating FOREMANS CHECKLIST shows the number of units (beams, sq ft, etc) and the man hours scheduled for each work activity as recorded in the various take-off work-sheets. An onsite foreman, with a hard copy of this checklist can, weekly or monthly, mark the number of units completed or the percent complete. This job-site count when entered into the estimators take-off work-sheets generates an accurate progress billing statement.

A self generating SCHEDULE OF VALUES reads all the estimators take-off work-sheets and lists the costs and the scheduled man hours of each. The project manager builds the schedule of values by clicking and dragging particular work activities into a specific billing phase. These billing phases reflect groups of work activity values and man hours. This schedule of values with the foremans checklist and daily log becomes the projects Earned Value Management System, it calculates values as earned and the man hours earned as the take-off units (beams, joists, lbs, sq ft, etc) are marked complete or the percent complete and automatically registers those amounts earned in the appropriate progress billing phases.

A self-generating foremans daily LOG PAGE is included. It reads the completed schedule of values and creates a column for each billing phase. A work comp code can be assigned to each of these columns. The daily man/hrs worked are logged into one or more of the log page columns for payroll purposes. These logged hours can then be entered into a corresponding weekly log in the schedule of values spreadsheet. This provides for an easy side-by-side productivity comparison; allowing management to compare the man hours earned to the actual man hours expended.

The CHANGE ORDER spreadsheets are linked to the estimators original take-off and when priced automatically register in the schedule of values. Then as contract change orders are issued the settled amount is entered in the change order settled column and the value with the scheduled man hours register as a new line item in the progress billing statement. Change orders can be priced per work activity by crew plus equipment per hour rates or they can be estimated using a unit price take-off work-sheet that is linked to each change order spreadsheet. These work-sheets have built in unit price guide numbers like the miscellaneous steel work-sheets and the direct costs, tons and cost per ton are shown on the corresponding spreadsheet, providing back up for the proposed change order price.

A self generating SCOPE LETTER automatically lists the proposed inclusions, exclusions, and conditions.

There is also a SCHEDULE spreadsheet that reads man hours and crew days and generates a simple bar chart reflecting the duration of each work activity recorded. It also shows the accumulated durations of all similar work activities.

I have used and refined the Excel estimating program to price structural steel, joist and decking, steel siding, rebar and pre-engineered buildings for the past fourteen years. I use the take-off sheets for every job I price regardless of size or complexity. When a project is bid and successfully contracted the BID take-off becomes the project management tool. It is used for progress billing, for productivity comparisons, to compare scheduled durations with actual performance, and it is also used for impact claim documentation.
