Foundations of Demolition - Estimating Course

Foundations of Demolition Estimating Course

The National Demolition Association is excited to offer a one-and-a-half day seminar focusing on Demolition Estimating. Throughout this workshop, attendees will learn proven estimating techniques for a wide variety of projects in multiple industries. From conducting an initial site visit to analyzing the success of a bid, this course offers something for everyone involved in demolition estimating. During the seminar, attendees will work through a sample bid and compete with small groups to create the most qualified bid for a project. Attendees will leave this seminar with new information on the processes required to develop, organize, and implement an effective estimating program.
