Reflecting the author's 50 years of experience in the heavy construction industry, this is the only book of its kind. It is comprehensive enough to integrate the basic principles of cost estimating and bidding in one convenient volume, and it identifies the organizational and analytical processes involved in implementing these principles.

Focuses throughout on developing a competitive bid for acquiring a major heavy construction contract, performed under fixed price and time-commercial terms in today's competitive business environment. Explains and illustrates all key procedural steps essential to "setting up the estimate" that are specific to heavy construction projects. Explains in detail the various kinds of costs incurred by heavy construction contractors, along with the manner in which costs are typically displayed horizontally in the estimate. Discusses the vertical format of a bid estimate totaling to the final intended bid figure.

Perfect for contractors who want to brush up on estimation skills, or for anyone who wants to learn more about the costs incurred in heavy construction projects.
