Quantity surveying starts with determining the construction materials required to meet the job requirements by performing a materials take-off, which is a skill set in and of itself. This course will teach you how to apply the processes and procedures required to complete accurate and consistent material take-offs for pricing or even ordering purposes. Using the example of a small commercial structure, attendees will complete a detailed and comprehensive quantity survey/material takeoff for items of work including earthwork, substructure, and superstructure.

This isn’t a course where attendees sit back and listen – you’ll be expected to actively participate, and ‘learn by doing’ under the guidance of your course instructor. Your instructor will provide direction and examples of the various material take-offs, and then you’ll get to practice! Equipping learners with takeaway reference material, including practice files and a reference workbook to use beyond the classroom.

Who should attend? New construction estimators, staff who assist with take-offs, field engineering staff or supervisors required to order materials as part of their responsibilities, industry professionals who want to learn how a quantity survey is completed, or those considering a career as a quantity surveyor will all benefit from this course.
