How RSMeans Unit Price
Data Works (Continued)
Sample Estimate
This sample demonstrates the elements of an estimate, including a tally of the RSMeans data lines, and a summary
of the markups on a contractors work to arrive at a total cost to the owner. The RSMeans Location Factor is added at
the bottom of the estimate to adjust the cost of the work to a specic location.
Work Performed: The body of the estimate shows
the RSMeans data selected, including line number, a brief
description of each item, its take-off unit and quantity, and the
bare costs of materials, labor, and equipment. This estimate also
includes a column titled SubContract. This data is taken from
the RSMeans column Total Incl O&P, and represents the total
that a subcontractor would charge a general contractor for the
work, including the subs markup for overhead and prot.
Bonds: Bond costs should be added to the estimate. The
gures here represent a typical performance bond, ensuring
the owner that if the general contractor does not complete the
obligations in the construction contract the bonding company
will pay the cost for completion of the work.
Location Adjustment: RSMeans published data is
based on national average costs. If necessary, adjust
the total cost of the project using a location factor from the
Location Factor table or the City Cost Index table. Use
location factors if the work is general, covering multiple
trades. If the work is by a single trade (e.g., masonry) use
the more specic data found in the City Cost Indexes.
Division 1, General Requirements: This is the rst
division numerically, but the last division estimated. Division 1
includes project-wide needs provided by the general contractor.
These requirements vary by project, but may include temporary
facilities and utilities, security, testing, project cleanup, etc. For
small projects a percentage can be used, typically between 5%
and 15% of project cost. For large projects the costs may be
itemized and priced individually.
This estimate is based on an interactive spreadsheet.
A copy of this spreadsheet is located on the RSMeans website at
http://www.reedconstructiondata.com/rsmeans/extras/546011.
You are free to download it and adjust it to your methodology.
