Triple 2x12 Beam Installation
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction estimating unit cost for a built-up triple 2x12 structural beam approximately 12 to 24 feet in length.
One lineal foot of beam.
We figure a skilled carpenter can assemble and install about 14 feet of beam per hour, with about 20 minutes of help from an unskilled worker.
Three feet of 2x12 per foot of beam, with a 3% waste factor, plus a small amount of nails.
NOTES-- If you are bolting or gluing the beam components, add those materials separately or create a copy of this unit cost and add them to it. Some early versions of Goldenseal did not include fasteners for this item. It's not a huge cost difference but we added some nails so you won't forget to include them when you buy materials.
No suggested quantity. Enter the length of beam required.
