Importance of Mathematical Intuition for Cost Estimators

 

What is mathematical intuition and how does it apply to a construction cost estimator?

Mathematical intuition is the ability to instantly or quickly perform mathematical operations and obtain reasonable and relatively accurate results. Someone with mathematical intuition can make a good common-sense judgement on answers from others and tell if the number is too low, too high, or about right. Having this type of intuition is critical to construction cost estimators and can be the difference between winning or losing a bid. This video reviews the impact of new technology and how to maintain and improve your mental skills.
