Quantity Surveying Course (Project Estimation) is a critical part o project planning, involving a quantitative estimate of project costs, resources or duration. One of the goals is to bring it in without exceeding your budget.

    2. Detailed Estimates
    3. Quantity Estimates or Quantity Surveyor

  4. Understand tendering procedures and contractual arrangements.


  • The need for a standard method of measurement (SMM) for measurement of buildingwork.
  • Types/classification of measurement rules in SMM.

  1. Demonstrate a basic knowledge of tender estimating process Formal tender documents
  2. Bill of quantities
  3. Drawings
  4. Form of tender

 WEEK 5 

The importance of establishing accurate rates for labour, materials and plant, before pricing the bill of quantities, has reduced because programs allow the estimator to change unit rates for resources at any stage of the tender period.

To understand Labour rates, Plant rates and Material rates


Types of Contracts

There are three basic types of contract. Which are as follows:

  1. Lump sum contracts
  2. Measurement and Value Contracts / Re‐measurable Contracts
  3. Cost reimbursement Contracts


The objective of this module is to introduce you to  Budgeting Concepts and Definitions.


Understanding Variation Orders

A variation (sometimes referred to as a variation instruction, variation order or change order) is an alteration to the scope of works in a construction contract in the form of an addition, substitution or omission from the original scope of works


Understanding Extension of Time (EOT)

Extension of Time (EOT) is a delay which could not be reasonably foreseen at the time of contract signing. The granting of an Extension of Time relieves the contractor from liability of damages such as Liquidated Damages from the original date of contract completion for the period of the claim.

 WEEK 10

It shows the original contract amount, changes made to that total amount, the total balance already paid, the percentage of work completed, the amount currently due, and the total amount outstanding for the project.
