What is the best parameters to use in estimating the manhours of a structural steel detailing particular project ?
I was using my 'per assembly manhours consumption' as my basis in estimating projects, and I'm just curious what the professional estimators are using.

I'd love to be able to charge out that much! You must be rolling in money??? Only joking Wai

I think there are 3 main variables affecting a tonnage rate 1) Complexity, 2) Steel guage (weight per member) & 3) Repetitiveness. Of course there are many other factors which will affect the pricing but I think these are the main ones. You would need to work out a formula based on these factors and your costs to get an accurate figure.
Sorry to be so unhelpful but it can be complex.

You must need professional if you need Steel Fabrication Drawings. If you are looking professional for it then you can contact Structural Drafting India.
