Full Description

This is Excel-based, carpentry project cost estimating template, but useful also for any construction industry and any type of project. Project planners, managers, estimators, organizers, designers can have a huge benefit from it. It can be used for construction estimating, cost analysis, making bids, quotes, but also for evaluating different solutions in the construction project making phase – for example, one job can be done in several different ways, with different materials, machines, workforce types. With our spreadsheet, you can easily compare different project solutions.

Excel is commonly used for estimating because people love Excel’s simplicity and all the useful tools it has. However, Excel estimating models are lacking some crucial things that cost estimating software has – easily accessible database, the ability to divide the project into different phases, have a clear insight into every construction project’s phase cost, and automatic report creation. That’s why we created the MB Estimating Spreadsheet, which keeps all the Excel’s simplicity and ability to use all magnificent tools within but also incorporates crucial options of common cost estimating software. With this template, you are able to create your own database of materials, labor, and machines and easily access multiple database entries at once and create estimates very quickly. You can create as many project phases as different sheets and have a clear insight into every project aspect. You can create reports automatically. In this template, there is a database with around 50 carpentry materials with labor coefficients (man hour – amount of time needed for assembling one unit of material, which is useful if you want labor cost for assembling material automatically), but you can fill the database with over 1000000 rows of your construction material and labor items. And keep using all Excel’s wonderful tools and enjoy its simplicity!
