Is there a way to set a "Duration" of a card and appear across multiple days in the calendar?

I'm managing the Service Department for a Heavy Civil and Construction tech company, and we use Trello to help organize and schedule our installs and service calls in the field. 

 

These installs are billed based on a number of labor hours and can often stretch multiple days. Is there a way to set the duration of a card, and then have it reflected in the calendar view across the specified number of days. For example I might have a card with a start date of Monday, but the labor hours quoted is 24. Could I then have that card appear in the calendar across Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday?

This is critical so we don't over-book technicians.

Not at the moment, but we hear you! We don't have a concrete release date set yet, but we're adding a Timeline view next year: https://blog.trello.com/future-of-trello

For now, the best bet is to record the project's duration in a custom field, or perhaps in the Card's title. If you work mostly from Calendar view, putting the duration in the Title might be best as it would be visible on your Calendar.
