Electrical Estimating Speed Tip: How to Take Off Lighting (Saves you time)

In this blog, we will show you an electrical estimating speed tip how to take off lighting fixtures for commercial electrical estimating.

Taking off light fixtures is fast and easy.

When you are estimating commercial projects, you get your light fixtures quoted in a lot price.

Lot price means getting a price for an entire lighting package.

Here are steps on how to take off lighting:

  1. Print the fixture schedule.

  2. Count all the different types of light fixtures. (You can use highlighters with different colors) Write the quantity of the fixtures.
