Construction Estimating & Bidding: Theory/Principles/Process

This 2nd edition comprehensive text covers the entire estimating process, from an introduction to the art to post bid follow up. Well-written, logically sequenced, and easy to understand, it has become the benchmark by which other such texts are judged. Construction Estimating & Bidding is used as (and is ideal for) AGC chapter sponsored estimating classes, as the basic text or a reference, and has been accepted as THE primary textbook by top instructors at many major university construction degree programs. The book was written by construction professionals, members of AGC’s Construction Education Committee. Among other improvements, the Second Edition clarifies several examples, expands the scope of “Cost of Work,” and updates the extensive Glossary.
