Join us for this candid interactive workshop series as we will explore the key elements of what it takes to make the right estimates when it comes to materials, labour, and markup. Plus, hear our experts thoughts on how to estimate for contingencies and how to deal with slippage.

- Materials: What does it take to get the right product at the right price?
- Labour: How do you budget when scheduled labour goes awry?
- Contingency: What should you include in your contingency (slippage)?
- Markup: Are you making enough?

You will participate in discussions in a breakout session and share your group’s best practice recommendations on estimating!
