How can I enter or change my Overhead and Profit applications
With ConcreteCOST, the main estimate is created using a convenient wizardinterface which goes through all cost categories allowing you to select one or more items from each category page. Subsequently you can insert additionalcustom cost items to the estimate. The program automatically appliesoverhead and profits and makes city cost index adjustments.When you select your city from the "City" page of the wizard, ConcreteCOSTwill apply the city index (factor) to the construction costs.Open the "City" worksheet by clicking on the tab. Then edit the index (factor)in green. Use only numerics.Select a city that you believe is close in terms of costs. Alternatively, you canedit an existing entry or add your city to the list.
