In today’s tough economic climate, accurate cost estimating and bidding on landscape projects are more important than ever. Bid too low and you lose money. Bid too high and you lose jobs to competitors.
On March 12 and 13, 2009 faculty in the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Science will once again offer hands-on bidding workshops for landscape professionals. The workshops will be held in a computer lab on the UGA campus.
Participants will learn how to use Excel-based cost-estimating and bidding spreadsheets developed by UGA faculty. Day 1 will focus on installation cost estimating, while day 2 will concentrate on landscape maintenance cost estimating and job bidding. Participants may choose to attend one day or both days.
Registration includes hand-outs, refreshments, lunch each day, and take-home copies of the computer programs. Registration is limited to 40 participants each day, so early registration is encouraged.
