any location). Use the hint below to estimate all job overhead and assumed home office

overhead costs for that project. Please note that DRAWINGS ARE PROVIDED FOR

o Assumptions made to complete your work for example what’s the annual

revenue of your company, office rent etc. in order to calculate home office cost

allocation (-15)
