Quantity Takeoff Services

Quantity Takeoff Services

Our takeoff services involves measuring, counting and figuring quantities of any given construction item contained within the plans. Our takeoffs are reviewed by specialized civil engineers and customized to meet each individual client’s needs. These takeoffs can be (are typically) used for bidding purposes, budgeting purposes or ordering purposes.

We prepare quantity take-offs (QTO) for a detailed measurement of materials needed to complete a construction project. This process includes breaking the material down into smaller and more manageable units that are easier to measure. The level of detail required for measurement may vary. We review drawings, specifications, and models to find these quantities. We will also provide you a detailed materials list which you can send to your suppliers or use the materials detail on site.
