The estimate of the general conditions includes the cost of the project administration,
project equipment, temporary construction and general operations. The administration costs are
broken down into management and supervision, engineering and safety, and office to monitor
and manage the design and construction. The project equipment includes the cost of purchases,
transportation and other miscellaneous expenses. The estimate for temporary construction
includes buildings, utilities, facilities, and protection. Finally, the general operation costs include
permits, bonds, utilities, security, testing, and cleanup.
Structural System
To develop the most accurate take off quantities the provided plans were modeled by MACH 5
Modeling Department using Revit. Given the complexity of the structural system modeling the
structure in 3D is the best method to perform accurate estimations. Using the Revit database of
information a schedule of beams and columns was automatically created. These schedules were
used in conjunction with RS Means to calculate the structural system cost.

Time Dependent Durations
Construction on the Material & Life Science Building II is set to begin on October 1, 2008 and
complete by August 1, 2010. The construction schedule is 22 months long or approximately 96
weeks. These durations were used in many of the time dependent line items. The estimated
preconstruction duration is approximately 5.5 months therefore the total preconstruction and
construction duration is 27.5 months. The following chart shows the administrative personnel
and their contributions to this project.

The durations for the schedule have been calculated using RS Means Cost Data in conjunction
with industry experienced assumptions. The quantity of material was measured from the
provided building documentation and used with the daily outputs from RS Means Cost Data to
calculate the number of days to complete a task. These calculations can be found in Appendix
A. There will be a significant amount of time dedicated towards the foundation of the building,
approximately 170 days, including excavation, piling and concrete work. However the single
largest amount of time will be taken to install MEP. Finally, the schedule shows the project
completion on July 29.

AE 472
MACH 5 decided that building a detailed Revit model would be a good approach to get accurate
quantity take offs. (Detailed quantity take off sheets are available upon request to MACH 5). RS
Means Cost Data was used to gather prices for all of the quantities. During this process many
assumptions were made because of the lack of depth in RS Means. These assumptions are noted
in the tables below. The overall price of the super structure of the building is $8,309,800.
