The Encased Fabricated Steel Post Estimating Calculator estimates the Material, Labour and Plant required to install steel posts.

The Encased Fabricated Steel Post Estimating Calculator is linked to the Specification. Therefore, many of the items required for the estimating calculator (minus the post which will be set as "to be defined") are specified by the Specification.

The combination of information taken from the Specification and the dimensions you enter will calculate the following items automatically:

  • Universal Column
  • Fabrication and connections
  • Padstones
  • Bricks to support steelwork
  • Slates
  • Noggings
  • Plastering
  • Decorating

Plus all labour and plant associated with the above


  • Please check all pre-specified items listed in the Sundry Resources tab before accepting the output.
  • Make sure you define the universal column to be used as this will be set up as "to be defined" as standard.
