Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi all, 

can anyone please advise where to find labour or machine constant values online?

it there any free sources such as Rawlinsons construction handbook online.

If not, how can you get the labour or machine constant values to estimate the activity duration when the BoQ is ready.

 

Cheers,

Gao

I've never been compfortable trusting construction rates from unknown sources, and have also found in my experience that rates vary so significantly across companies, industries, countries and site conditions that standard rates are rarely good for anything more than comparison.

 

But if you want them, try the "rates" section of planning planet

I am curious about this too. Seems like in this day and age that information should be readily available and in a digital form to enhnace projects all over the world.
