We do mostly residential structural design. I just want to get your inputs on how you usually come up with the amount on the proposal. What is the effective way to do proposal? I feel that square footage is not very effective because some projects are more detailed than the other. Remodel is always harder than new projects but usually remodels are usually low budget projects. I want to write an excel spreadsheet to help me with this process. Any tips will be appreciated (especially if you are in the same business).
