Course Assessment & Inventory
There are three basic components in this document. The first component is a course assessment table that allows for detailed info on each bunker/bunker complex and corresponding hole. The table can be used for simple measurements and calculations to be made. The second component is a notes/comments page that should be used for detailed observations or ideas. The third component is a bunker grid that will allow you to make rough sketches, detailing drainage or other bunker features.
Use and print these pages as necessary, making sure to keep yourself organized. It’s a good idea to print enough pages and drop into a folder, keeping everything in a quick, easy to use format. PDF DOC
RFP’s, Bidding & Cost Estimating
These documents will help you solicit, select, and negotiate with key vendors. The RFP Templates for architects and builders help you set-up a standardized method of soliciting firms. The bid sheets organize common elements you’ll see in bunker projects and allow you to modify tables to suit your needs. You’re also provided bid tabulations sheets to help you make direct comparisons. These documents are in Portable Document Format (PDF), Microsoft Word (DOC), and Microsoft Excel (XLS).
The Basic Estimate Worksheet is set-up as a spreadsheet with formulas for calculations already set-up. All you will need to do is enter quantities and price and the rest is completed for you. Keep in mind that the values used in the spreadsheet are arbitrary. You’ll want to make your own determinations as to the costs you’ll see in your area.
These documents are at the core of any project. Keeping organized with contracts, contract terms, change orders, and responsibility assignments will go a long way towards project success. If you’re implementing a project with the help of an architect or construction manager, you will want to review the control sheets and determine what roles each will serve. These documents are in Portable Document Format (PDF), Microsoft Word (DOC), and Microsoft Excel (XLS).
Some of these documents are provided in Microsoft Excel (98-2002 and 2007 versions) so you can keep them updated and use them as working documents.
