About this Session…
MCAA’s WebLEM is the next generation of the popular Labor Estimating Manual (LEM), considered the industry’s most reliable, authoritative source for comprehensive labor units for typical project tasks. This web-based product, which is free to all members, contains the detailed labor data that contractors have come to depend on. With WebLEM, you can quickly search for and retrieve information, as well as export the data into Microsoft Excel or CSV format

MCAA’s WebLEM can save your company time and money by giving your Estimators immediate 24/7 access to a systematic approach to labor estimating that’s proven successful for hundreds of mechanical contractors in generating hundreds of millions of dollars in annual construction.

This session will be presented by the two Co-Chairs of the Labor Estimating Manual Committee, Tim Moormeier, President of U.S. Engineering and Ron King of Accubid, Division of Trimble.  Ron and Tim were integral in the conversion of the LEM information into the current web-based product.  Their presentation will focus on how to use the WebLEM effectively, how labor units are developed, what the Committee considers when making decisions on labor units, and what is coming next for the WebLEM.  They will take you behind the scenes of WebLEM to understand how the labor hours are applied in the system so that you can appropriately apply your own experience modifiers in your estimating system.
