Course details

Building upon the topics presented in BLDC 2300, Estimating 3 provides the opportunity for students to measure items of work on more complex structures than the previous courses have introduced. Topics include development and application of labour and material prices for items of work. The course also identifies the role of construction cost accounting in the construction estimating process. Lecture topics will also include the ethics and challenges estimators will face in relation to fair business dealings, subcontractor relationships, and bid shopping. This course may be eligible for students to receive funding through the StrongerBC Future Skills Grant at www.bcit.ca/financial-aid/strongerbc-future-skills-grant. Students register themselves into the course, then apply for the StrongerBC Future Skills Grant to cover payment, if eligible.
