AutoCAD Drawings, 3D BIM, Excel Spreadsheets, are common techniques known to Architects for Quantity Estimation or Survey for construction projects.
Quantity Survey vs Quantity Estimation
Generally people have presumption that Quantity Survey (QS) and Quantity Estimation (QE) are same. However the difference betwen both of them lies in the technique of calculation. If you are estimateding quantities with limited information it is called Quantity Estimation while if you are calculating drawings by surveying them it is Quantity Survey. We calculate the quantities with best of standards which have limited variation when it comes to execution of works. We calculate the quantities using the standard IS codes.
Alternative to QS/QE
People engage the experience professionals to copy paste the quantities for preparation of BOQ. Few engage Freelancers to give better solution. There are lot of Architects who try to do it In-house. Many people just carry the information from the previous projects.There are lot of individual consultants who are into QS work, however it carries the risk of reliability when your commitment is at stake in front of your customer. Even there are solution providers who work for QS Manually in this advance age of technology.
