American Trails will present this Webinar on February 22, 2018 with Margie Tatro, founder/co-owner of Reineke Construction. This webinar will deliver a simple, cost estimating tool and provide a list of the key factors associated with trail construction costs.
One of the most challenging elements of trail planning is budgeting. Understanding the factors associated with trail construction cost estimates will help a wide spectrum of trail community members. This workshop will deliver a simple, cost estimating tool and provide a list of the key factors associated with trail construction costs. Issues such as the true costs, risks, and opportunities of volunteer labor; overhead costs such as equipment maintenance; and comparisons of hand-built and machine-built construction methods will be covered.
This workshop is appropriate for recreation planners, land managers, trail advocates, policy makers, designers, and architects. Trail service providers are also welcome.
