We are a small family owned company. We have successfully been in business for 15 years however some how we gotten by using the help of a very generous friend with our bids. He has helped us by doing the math but I feel it is time to step it up and learn this myself so I can help with the estimating. The square footage of a pad or a drive way is easy. Linear foot of lines is easy to bid looking at plans but when it comes to excavation and understanding the math of cutting a hill down and placing a pad on top I am clueless. Are there online classes or a way for me to learn this fast and effective? I coule take full courses but feel that almost all of them are hard to understand or teach a bunch of stuff that is irrelevant to what I need to learn. Ay help would be greatfully appreciated. Thanks
