PREFACE: DEAR PROFESSIONAL, Welcome to the world of Computer Aided Building Estimation and Costing. Most important role of Quantity Surveyors is to estimate the cost of the proposed building; enabling the contractor to evaluate and determine the feasibility of the project. Hence accuracy of forecasting the cost of future projects is vital to the success of the business or organization involving in future construction projects. A Professional Quantity Surveyor has a comprehensive knowledge of construction, construction methods, local laws relating to construction projects and accounting, in order to provide cost and financial advice. The foundation for a successful cost estimate relies upon reliable identification of the quantities (takeoff) of the various materials involved in the project. Cost estimators develop the cost information based on the design developed by the design team members which will help the team to make budgetary and feasibility determinations.
Course on Computer Aided Building Estimation and Costing lets you use the Autodesk Quantity Takeoff software in a more systematic way and improve your productivity accuracy. We truly believe this course would be beneficial to every professional planning to build a career as a professional Quantity Surveyor as well as, making an experienced Quantity Surveyor learn the software tools that could compliment their profession.
The systematically organized courseware explains the method to perform a takeoff of a building based on non-intelligent image formats such as JPG, TIF and PDF and also from Building Information Models (BIM). It also covers the interactive examination of 3D models, dynamic counting and quantifying the design data and the way of creating summaries and detailed quantity surveying reports.
