Estimating and Surveying
An abridged bill of quantities can be prepared from drawings and an estimate formulated.
This can be useful for builders who are pricing works either as an estimate or for a competitive tender.
A material schedule can also be prepared from the abridged bill of quantities to assist with material ordering.
For clients wishing to employ a builder, an initial cost plan can be prepared so that at the outset of your project you have a good understanding of costs involved.
