General Conditions Cost Changes


Starting with Goldenseal 3.2 we have made some minor improvements and changes to a few of the Assemblies in the General Conditions estimating cost category.

  • Scaffolding Rentals are now clearer about daily versus monthly unit costs
  • Temporary Toilet includes more plumber labor
  • Temporary Wood Heater now includes setup costs plus daily cost
  • Temporary Power Pole is now in the Temporaries subcategory
  • We tweaked a few of the material quantities in Temporary Fencing costs


If you have Goldenseal 3.1 or earlier, you can import these Assembly changes into your company file.

To add the changes, first download the update file. Follow these steps:

  1. Click this link-- General Conditions Update.
  2. Save the text file on your hard drive and remember where it is.

Next, import the data into your company file:

  1. Open your company file.
  2. Choose Import from the File menu, and choose **Other Update from the submenu.
  3. Locate the General_Costs.txt file that you just downloaded from the website.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Goldenseal will automatically change the assemblies.

**If you have an older version of Goldenseal, you may not see the Other Update command. In that case, use the Payroll Update command instead. It does exactly the same thing.
