Counting Miscellaneous Items

Other items to be written up on the worksheet are the one of a kind miscellaneous items that you will find as you are counting disconnects and motor controlling devices.

This list is just a sample of the types of miscellaneous items that may be found on the drawings. The most important thing to remember when estimating is to clear all of the miscellaneous items off the plans and transfer them to a worksheet. Be sure to use the hash mark system to keep count of the items. As these items are found, color them in with a blue pencil. If any items on the drawings are not colored in, it will indicate to you or anyone else that these items were missed and yet to be included on the worksheets.
