Bills of Quantities prepared by our practice have the following uses, and these are borne in mind by the Quantity Surveyor during their preparation:. Each contractor tendering for the project is able to price the work on exactly the same information with a minimum of effort. This therefore avoids duplication in quantifying the work, and allows for the fairest type of competition. The Bills of Quantities which we produce comprise preliminaries, preambles or descriptions of materials and workmanship, and the measured works section. In relation to the contract documentation, after the Client has made a decision of an award of the contract, SC Quantity Surveyors would then prepare and collate the necessary Contract Documentation and incorporate any agreed alterations that may have been made post-tender.
Design of building is subject to functional, dimensional, technological and financial constraints. It requires a team, which brings together men of varied training and experience — Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Engineers and builders. The Quantity Surveyors is a key member of the construction team-the essential link between the client who commissions the building, Architects and Engineer who design it and the builders who builds it. He is the expert on construction costs and communication and his services are used from the inception of a project its completion. Experts cost advice is essential. It is no use designing a building which meets the functional, dimensional and technological requirements of the brief, and is aesthetically satisfying, but which the client cannot afford.
Purpose of Specifications and types of Specifications
A Quantity Surveyor QS is a construction industry professional with expert knowledge on construction costs and contracts. In some countries such as Canada, South Africa, Kenya and Mauritius, qualified quantity surveyors are known as Professional Quantity Surveyors, a title protected by law. Quantity surveyors are responsible for managing all aspects of the contractual and financial side of construction projects. They help to ensure that the construction project is completed within its projected budget. Quantity surveyors are also hired by contractors to help with the valuation of construction work for the contractor, help with bidding and project budgeting, and the submission of bills to the client. Usually, anyone looking to qualify as Chartered Quantity Surveyor or Professional Quantity Surveyor must hold appropriate educational qualifications and work experience, and must pass a professional competence assessment. Some candidates may be entitled to qualify through extensive experience and reciprocity agreements.
Contract administration 1. Specification and quantity survey 2. Contract documents 3. Site supervision 4. The parties may be natural persons or juristic persons. A Construction Contract between the Contractor and the Owner is very important for successful completion of a construction project.
CRTC believes that quantity surveying is an integral part of any design and construction stages. Whether it is during pre-construction stage or during the construction stage; our dedicated team of expert quantity surveyors works closely with the design and engineering team to find the optimum balance between cost, quality, value, and budget requirements of the client. For example, they consider alternative design approach, different materials that serve the same purpose, and different suppliers for the same material among other technics. Cost Control. Value Engineering. Interim Valuation.

The article presents detailed analysis of the case of the renovation of one of historic tenement houses in Warsaw. Other, similar cases analyzed in less detail- were called verification cases. The aim of the article was, first of all, to present the scale of discrepancies between planned and performed amount of works and possibly precise indication of the reasons for these underestimations. The scope of the research included the inventory of the technical condition of selected building elements, the execution of bill of quantities, quantity survey and cost estimates of selected works. The conducted research shows that quantity survey of works subjected to analysis such as: repair of walls, chimneys and brick walls reached the value at least twice as large.

At the conceptual stage such estimation is done on the basis of conceptual drawings or in case of any non-availability of such drawings, it is done on thumb-rule basis utilizing expertise and experience of specialists. At the execution stage the quantities are calculated based on the construction drawings. In general we can describe quantity survey as follows: 1. Description and preparation of the bill of quantities and its items required for the tender. Preparation of the site material, material types, and material distribution Accuracy ,thoroughness and ability to reconcile quantity and cost at every point of time are the important qualities of a Good Quantity Surveyor.
Apart from the theory, readers will be exposed to various problems that can also be encountered. Readers will gain an overall perspective of the different aspects of estimating, specification, costing, construction, and tendering. The author has included clues, which will show the reader how to first understand the problem and then how to proceed in solving it. The author addresses some important concepts in Civil Engineering such as construction management, cost specification, and estimation. The book contains twenty six chapters, three appendices, and a detailed index.
In short Specification is a statement of particular instructions of how to execute some task. In terms of an engineering project a specification contains a detailed written description of the quality of materials and workmanship necessary to complete the work. In the construction activity therefore, the scope of the work that is described in drawings includes such information as dimensions, form, or details while the specifications provide the description of the qualities of materials for construction. Introduction Cont. Information that is best transmitted in written form is addressed in the specification while that which is best transmitted graphically will be addressed in drawings where both are so defined as to be mutually complementary and understood in conjunction.
About this book
Specifications describe the nature and the class of the work, materials to be used in the work, workmanship etc. The cost of a work depends much on the specifications. Specifications should be clear. Types of Specifications Purpose of giving Specifications The cost of an unit quantity of work is governed by its specifications. Specification of a work is required to describe the quality and quantity of different materials required for a construction work and is one of the essential contract documents.
Там, за ней, его обратный билет. Остается только заполнить. Беккер снова вздохнул, решительно подошел к двери и громко постучал. Пора переходить к решительным действиям. Немец рывком открыл дверь и собрался было закричать, но Беккер его опередил. Помахав карточкой теннисного клуба Мериленда, он рявкнул: - Полиция.
Над головой, в головокружительном пустом пространстве, на потрепанной веревке раскачивалась серебряная курильница размером с холодильник, описывая громадную дугу и источая едва уловимый аромат. Колокола Гиральды по-прежнему звонили, заставляя содрогаться каменные своды. Беккер перевел взгляд на позолоченную стену под потолком. Его сердце переполняла благодарность. Он дышал.
- Что еще мне остается? - Он представил Хейла на скамье подсудимых, вываливающего все, что ему известно о Цифровой крепости. - Весь мой план рухнет. Должен быть какой-то другой выход. - Решайте! - крикнул Хейл и потащил Сьюзан к лестнице.
Три часа. Стратмор поднял брови. - Целых три часа.
Ей казалось, что она слышит его голос, зовущий ее, заставляющий спасаться бегством, но куда ей бежать. Шифровалка превратилась в наглухо закрытую гробницу. Но это теперь не имело никакого значения, мысль о смерти ее не пугала.
