Quantity Takeoff/Survey is a key component in the production of accurate estimate and cost information for PCL clients. Quantities drive project costs and as a result are critical to the estimating process.
PCL is a construction company that uses multiple tools to perform takeoff and quantity survey including an in-house takeoff program called BEST Quantity Takeoff and a third-party electronic takeoff program.
BEST Quantity Takeoff is primarily used for concrete takeoffs, and it is fully integrated with PCL’s estimating system for easy transfer and use of quantities during the estimate process.
An industry leading, third-party program allows PCL estimators to create fast and accurate paperless takeoffs, and compare versions of electronic drawings to quickly identify differences. Quantities are then easily transferred between BEST Quantity Takeoff and the third-party program.
PCL estimators use takeoff programs to be efficient and accurate when producing cost estimates for clients.
