HSCNZL Estimating & Tendering for Plumbers Course

Through our interaction with the plumbing trade, we believe plumbers are ready to embrace a course outlining the fundamentals of good estimating and tendering.

Our course is intended to introduce plumbing tradespersons to the science (or art) of estimating various sections of plumbing works.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:-

  1. Understand how to accurately takeoff and measure the various sub-disciplines within the plumbing field.

  2. Enter the take-off items as line items into Simpro Job Management Software (principles demonstrated on Simpro are transferable to Fergus)

  3. Apply accurate material and labour rates to these takeoffs.

  4. Understand overhead and profit and accurately apply both to the estimate.

  5. Adjudicate and present a tender.

  6. Return a priced Schedule of Quantities back to the main Contractor.

Peter Downey will deliver the next course at a time to be confirmed.

The course is all about learning how to estimate and tender a small plumbing project, creating and using “pre-builds” within Simpro. Skills learnt on this project will be transferable Fergus Simpro? or and to a project of any size. Purely for demonstration purposes, you will be provided with a trial account of Simpro, preloaded with some Pre-builds (similar to Fergus Favourites) and enough back ground data to be able to progress the estimate using any software.
