ONLYDO QUESTION 8

B06 Cost Estimating

Directions: Be sure to make a copy of your answer before submitting it to Ashworth College for grading. Unless otherwise stated, answer in complete sentences, and be sure to use correct English spelling and grammar. Your response should be a minimum of one (1) single spaced page to a maximum of two (2) pages in length.

For the figure provided, answer the following questions. Provide the correct units for each calculation. To obtain full credit, show all steps, state all assumptions (if any), and all the answers must be correct. Work must be neat and legible. A simply stated answer receives no points.

Excavation

- Enlarge the footprint by 5 feet for accuracy and slope, then determine the volume of topsoil to be removed and stockpiled, if the thickness 9”.
- If no soil is to be stockpiled, and the swell is 10 percent, how many truck loads will it take to cart away from the site using 7 cy trucks?
Foundation

A cross section of the 24” wide continuous footing is shown. Assume this footing detail applies to all footings throughout the building.

- Determine the total linear feet of footing required?
- Calculate the cross-sectional area of the footing?
- Determine the volume of concrete in cubic yards for the footing. Add 5% for waste and round off.
Slab

- Given that the slab is 4” thick, calculate the volume of concrete required for the slab (use 8% waste factor).
- Given WWF was specified for the reinforcing in the slab, determine how many rolls are required? Assumptions: 750 sf per roll and add 20% for lap and waste.
- Using the following labor and material rates calculate the cost to provide and install the WWF and pour the concrete slab.
Productivity rate for slab = 0.4 labor hours/cy

Productivity rate for WWF = 1 labor hour/roll

Labor rate for slab and WWF = $14.50/hr
