The Rate Sheet is the sheet where the cost of an assembly can be built up from the separate
components, e.g. an internal door assembly, a concrete slab, a wardrobe, or anything that is
made up of more than a single component.
If an item is made up of only one component, consider entering the rate directly into the Estimate sheet.
The Rate sheet is sometimes called a Composite rate sheet, as it is composed of multiple item. Rates can be built up from a mixture of materials and labour or materials only.
