The ASTM E1557 UNIFORMAT II Excel Elemental Estimating Spreadsheet saves time preparing elemental project estimates, and it helps ensure that they're in compliance with the ASTM E1557 standard, UNIFORMAT II.

It's designed to make it easier to implement the UNIFORMAT II standard. It was developed in Microsoft Excel, for Windows XP on a PC. It will work with more recent versions of Excel and with Quattro Pro.

The Spreadsheet is ideal for preliminary budget estimates that can be coordinated with preliminary project descriptions.

Costs can effectively be monitored at each phase of design with the analytic parameters generated to facilitate Design Cost Analysis.

Are you working on French or Spanish projects? Good news! Although the instruction manual is in English, the ASTM E1557 UNIFORMAT II Excel Elemental Estimating Spreadsheet can produce output data in English, French or Spanish.
