Title:Manual for basic construction and materials takeoff workshop
Author(s):Jones, Rudard A.
Subject(s):Home construction
Abstract:This Basic Construction and Material Takeoff Workshop and Manual is intended to provide basic information on: 1) materials and their application, 2) construction details, techniques and procedures, and 3) methods for takeoff of material quantities required for a house. The material takeoff procedure presented is based on a TAKEOFF CHECK LIST. The check list is designed to aid the estimator in his takeoff process by giving a logical step-by-step procedure which will avoid overlooking any portion of the material needed for construction of a house. Generally speaking, the check list is arranged in the order of the construction sequence of a house, excepting in those instances in which it is considered more important to group materials together. The manual is heavily illustrated with drawings taken from the Minimum Property Standards of the Federal Housing Administration. The MPS are also used as construction standards for most of the manual.
