Structural Engineering Drawing Costs


This unit costs covers the expense of structural engineering drawings and calculations. Use it for projects that require stamped detail drawings for trusses, beams or other structural components in a construction project.

The cost is a simple "rule of thumb" estimate for each engineer drawing.

HINT-- If your project requires many engineered components, you should probably handle the drawings as an allowance, or get a firm price quote for the work.

Labor Costs

We figure about 4 hours of engineer time per drawing, listed as a subcontractor.

NOTE-- Some early versions of Goldenseal incorrectly had an equipment rate for this item, rather than subcontractor time.

Material Costs

No material costs are included.

Source of Construction Pricing

A very ballpark estimate based on occasional engineered details in Turtle Creek Construction.
