What are the three types of construction cost estimates?
- Estimating with unit rates. A unit-rate contains the average amount of resources you need to install one unit (piece, meter, kg, etc.)
- Resource-based estimating. When an MTO is available it makes sense to use unit-rates for your estimates.
- Factor estimating.
