Introduction to Construction Estimating




MCA is proud to partner with BuildForce Canada and their E-Learning Centre to offer its members access to first-class online courses.

This training program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to visualize the scope and magnitude of a construction project and produce reliable estimates. This is accomplished by reviewing drawings through various phases of a project with the aim of determining the quantity and type of materials required for the project.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the building practices involved in the construction process
  • Consider factors that affect labour and operational costs when preparing estimates
  • Consider the management of materials for an estimate
  • Describe how to maintain systems for managing records
  • Know how to produce accurate and professional estimates
  • Know how to assemble bids and meet bid closure deadlines
