Dear Alfred,

Thank you for this question.

Do you have access to the Tender breakdown? If not, you will be struggling as there is no set formula and consideration must be given to the nature of the work and the operations required, which should all be in the estimator's trendier notes.

I hope that this assists you.

Kind regards,
John Dowse
