Concrete Unit Prices
User is confused-- why is concrete by the square foot? Why are there two unit prices for slabs, footings and concrete walls? Why don't we do them with just one Assembly?
Goldenseal construction estimating software includes "double" unit prices for concrete footings, concrete walls and concrete slabs. By doing the pricing with two different Assemblies, we can handle any size of concrete footing, and any thickness of walls or slabs.
Explain the basics:
CONCRETE FOUNDATION FOOTINGS
NOTE-- we used the same calculation in MacNail and BidMagic construction estimating software. There are also some simple unit costs for basic thicknesses and sizes. They can use those if they want to do it in one whack (however the two-unit items will still be useful if they have an odd thickness).
