Preparing Estimates in WFL

The following resources apply to completing Engineer's Estimates in WFLHD:

Estimate Tips

Line Item Numbers: These are very important during Construction. The default values shown will work for most projects. Reserve lines 6000 to 9999 for use during Construction. If 300 or more pay items per schedule are expected, then change the starting number to 0010 and the increment number to 10. This will allow for almost 600 pay items per schedule.

Column Headers: When appropriate, use the Allowance column to provide additional quantity used to round the bid quantity to some interval.
