CON 4003 Construction Estimating Prof R. V. Locurcio
Include Nonbearing walls Finishes applied to floors, walls, and ceilings
In construction: Finishes take longer to install Are more expensive than other tasks Room can be basic or more elegant In life: Women typically want the best of the best AND……
Nonbearing wall Consists of light-gage steel studs in a C-shaped runner at the top and bottom of partition Main use is to form stud walls Used in commercial building; whereas, timber studs used in residential
Solution steps: Determine the total number of studs need, assume standard spacing Then determine number of pieces of runners
Consists of the gypsum board, metal or plastic trim, fasteners, tape, and drywall compound Boards come in different thicknesses but typically 1/2 and 5/8 inches Width is always 4 feet Length varies from 8 to 16 feet Different types Standard- typically used Type X (fire rated)- used to create fire rated partitions and ceilings Water resistant- used in wet areas (bathrooms, laundry rooms, etc.)
Placed on masonry and concrete walls to permit installation of gypsum, prefinished plywood, or other type of finished interior wall materials. Labor Hours required to place wood furring strips and grounds in usually estimated by 100 lf.
Known as Drywall or Sheetrock Sheets 1/2” or 5/8” thick and 4 ft wide by 8 or 10 ft long. Fastened to furring strips on concrete walls, directly to studs, and to the ceiling joists. Labor hours required to install drywall varies with size and complexity of area. (round walls are more complex than flat walls)
Priced by the square ft Taping and finishing are listed by sq ft Pricing depends on finishing: Textured, smooth, sprayed Hanging drywall is usually done by a crew Usually a budget is allotted for touch-ups
Prefinished plywood panels are used to cover walls and ceilings. Panels are ¼” – ¾” thick; 4’ X 8’ Available in almost any material. Cost depends on size and species. The cost of labor installing plywood panels varies considerably with size, shape, and complexity of area. Waste factor can be high depending on shapes in areas.
Base board moldings are made of pine or oak Installed at floor level around the room. Crown molding are installed at ceiling level
Consists of ceiling tiles suspended from the ceiling in a metal grid Grid consists of wall molding, main tees, 4 foot cross tees, and 2 foot cross tees Quick installation of lights and AC vents Metal studs do not go to the top of the ceiling Freedom of where to run the ducts
Floats over concrete which allows floors to move, expand, and contract A gap is left between all edges of the floor Vapor barriers, sound- deadening underlayment, and trim must be included in cost
More durable than linoleum Typically used in high volume areas and in bathrooms Cheaper version of wood and laminate Available in 12 foot widths Must be installed in one direction Rooms wider than 12 feet, pattern must be seamed Comes with glue on it, just have to rip off plastic
VCTs have no space between titles Eliminates need for grout Available in 12 in x 12 in squares Glue needs to be calculated from historical data Affordable, durable, and strong Typically used in commercial and industrial buildings such as schools
Roles or pieces Bid as a linear good Can be bent around corners, no cutting required Cheaper than wood baseboard Typically used in commercial buildings such as schools and hospitals
Pad is sheet good Fastening strips are required Trim is required anytime the carpet transitions Fastening strips and trim are bid as a linear good
