-The calculation above is an example based on an excavation project of sq.ft. with easy access and comparing traditional 10'' excavation VS 4'' with the Gator Base way.
-When entering the amount, ( hourly cost or quantities of tons, yards or sq.ft.) it will self calculate giving you final saving, for each line (1-22), except for line 8 which is variable.
1: Project size based on sq.ft.
2: Crew member that will execute the job: ,
3: List of equipment needed: 10 wheeler, excavator, vibrating plate, and other hand tools
4: Excavation cost, title
5: Excavation mechanical equipment (truck, excavator and equipment) overhead equipment usage
6: Man hours and cost excavation related work (Labors to excavate, load and transport)
7: Foreman, man hours cost for excavation
8: The amount of yards and cost for disposal of excavated material
9: Total saving or cost for the excavation is self calculated.
10: Base preparation cost (material, time and equipment)
11: Quantity needed and cost of crushed stone by the yard
11a: Quantity needed and cost of bedding sand by the yard
12: Amount and cost of hours of compacting crushed stone
12a: Amount and cost of hours of compacting bedding sand
13: Overhead cost of equipment for compacting and or backfilling
14: Quantity and cost of Geo-Fabric per sq.ft. needed, including 6" wider than paved surface
15: Quantity and cost of Gator Base per sq.ft. needed, including 6" wider than paved surface
16: Amount of hour and cost to lay Gator Base
17: Foreman, man hours cost of base preparation
18: Saving or cost for the base preparation self calculated.
19: Sq.ft. Saving of the excavation and base preparation
20: Overall saving of the excavation and base preparation
21: Total man hours used in the traditional way for excavation and base preparation
22: Total man hours used in the Gator Base way for excavation and base preparation
23: Conclusion: money and man hours saved for this project
