The course deepens the knowledge on documentation that forms the basis for contracting and purchasing. Estimation, time frame, planning of work area for machines and materials is performed in order to link it to the actual project work. Special consideration is focused on the following parts: Quantity estimation, price setting/estimation, time setting, quotation/tender, environmental management plan, site layout, work protection, quality plan, administrative regulations and documentation management systems.
