Accurate Quantity take-offs (QTO) services from
UR CAD Services that translates into precise scheduling and cost estimation
Outsource MEP Material Take-off requirements and get comprehensive quantity take-offs through detailed analysis of each element.
The bill of quantities 'BoQ' is a document that provides project specific measured quantities of the items of work identified by the drawings and specifications in the tender documentation. The quantities may be measured in number, length, area, volume, weight or time. Preparing a bill of quantities requires that the design is complete and a specification has been prepared.
A detailed measurement of materials and labor required to complete a construction project is known as quantity takeoff. We have a team of well-experienced estimators who can do quantity takeoff by reviewing drawings and specifications. We specialize in material takeoffs and quantity surveys for both labor and materials. We do takeoffs from digital plans or hard copy blueprints. We count every material item required to build any size construction project.
BOQ shall be used in every phase (pre-contract & post-contract) of the project but the need of BOQ differs based on different contract agreements & project. Our quantity estimators provide various services including preparing cost estimates and plans, auditing projects, managing construction costs and administering construction contracts for all types and levels of construction. They also check on changes of design to assess the cost effects.
The methods that we use in quantity takeoff projects help the clients reduce the time taken for the project completion and thereby minimize the expense by great extent and percentage. Our quantity take-off services support cost estimators to create synchronized and comprehensive project views. With a focus on detail and a deep ingrained functional expertise, we ensure that a perfect blend of technology and expert intervention enables high precision quantity take-off model and hence allows projects to be completed within the stipulated budgets constraints and on time.
Bills of quantities are most useful to the contractor when they are prepared in work sections that reflect likely sub-contract packages. This makes it easier for the contractor to obtain prices from sub-contractors and is more likely to result in an accurate and competitive price. The bill of quantities should identify the different kinds of work required but should not specify them as this can lead to confusion between information in the bill of quantities and information in the specification itself.

The Importance and the major usages of Bill of Quantities BOQ:
BOQ gives a premise to the valuation of variation.
BOQ provides the basic idea of the project by giving the quantities to tenderers.

It is very important that bills of quantities are prepared according to a standard, widely recognized methodology. This helps avoid any ambiguities or misunderstandings and so helps avoid disputes arising through different interpretations of what has been priced. Bills of quantities can be prepared elementally or in works packages, by a process of 'taking off' which involves identifying elements of construction works that can be measured and priced.
Bills of quantities are normally only prepared on larger projects. On smaller projects, or for alteration work the contractor can be expected to measure their own quantities from drawings and schedules of work. Schedules of work are 'without quantities' instructional lists that allow the contractor to identify significant work and materials that will be needed to complete the works and to calculate the quantities that will be required.

The bill of quantities is issued to tenderers for them to prepare a price for carrying out the works. The bill of quantities assists tenderers in the calculation of construction costs for their tender, and, as it means all tendering contractors will be pricing the same quantities (rather than taking-off quantities from the drawings and specifications themselves), it also provides a fair and accurate system for tendering.
