This is a book and CD. With over 45 years of experience in contracting, managing and estimating electrical projects, the author has compiled literally thousands of installation labour rates used in everyday estimating procedures in this easy-to-use manual. These labour rates complement the instructional portion of this manual that is written in simple, easy-to-digest construction language. Many professional estimator's guides are like door stops, filled with cumbersome and dreaded "refer to page number X" and "see note Y". They are not user-friendly or easily referenced. With its larger font sizes, larger format for easy viewing and its lay flat binding, so that it will stay open on an engineer's desktop or on the technician's sawhorse or truck hood, this manual is the optimal choice when deciding which reference material to use. Included with this book is a CD with all of the spreadsheets and forms that estimators need on a daily basis. Just download them onto your hard drive and print them out. Use them time and again for all your electrical estimating projects.
