This course will be delivered at an intermediate to advanced level, so familiarity with commercial plans, specs, and the RSMeans manual is necessary for the attendee to capture the greatest value. In the morning, we will dive into an extensive concrete take-off activity, and in the afternoon we will participate in an extensive interior finishes take-off activity. Though past attendance of MBI's Blueprint Reading for Commercial Construction series is not required, we do suggest that attendees have a medium to high-level of understanding of blueprint reading. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
