PM me info, thanksI use a company to do the take offs for me. I e-mail them the pdf's and they use Agtek to work the plans. I recently sent them plans for a 3 acre shopping center and they gave me a chart with all the yardage, including stripped topsoil, cuts and fills. They also gave me the sq ft of the buildings, sidewalks, lawn areas and the parking lot. They also gave me a 2D model of the site. Charged me $325.
Beware Vinny - dirtwork takeoffs are highly susceptible to errors of both fact and judgement. Pricing the work is also highly dependent upon local cut/fill "balances" for any given period of time.Is there such a thing as an outsource estimating service for site work and if there is does anyone know of one in the Fairfield County Connecticut area??
we have cohesives here that will run tween 30-35% swell. people shouldn't be so reluctant to entertain the services of a soils engineer prior to bidding a project. they can save you a LOT of money and grief when it's all doneif you can estimate paving your more then half way there........length times width times depth divide by 27........use this for ditches, cut and fill etc. Dont forget to add 25 % for swell factor.
Hope this helps some.
don't promote somebody's product or service here unless they are willing to pay the owners of this site some advertising....it's only fairYes there is!
