Set Costs (crane, crew, etc.)

Estimated: 10,000

4500 for set crew; 5500 for crane

Actual: 11,750

4500 for set crew; 7250 for crane

Notes: We needed a bigger crane than anticipated (130 ton v. 70 ton). It seems to me as if this should have been anticipated by ALL the participants - contractor in charge of set, crane operator who gave us the initial estimate, Simplex, Res4 - but nobody questioned the smaller crane until the day of the scheduled set, when the crane operator came to set up and said no way...
