This fifth course in the Facility Condition Assessment Survey (FCAS) series describes how to build the actual cost estimate using the CESS spreadsheet. Topics include: using assemblies and item takeoffs to build a cost estimate, how to modify an estimate created from an assembly to fit your specific situation, and the additional “add-on” cost factors that are an integral part of an estimate.

  • Navigate through the CESS.
  • Define an item and an assembly.
  • Create an estimate using an assembly takeoff.
