When Should a Material and Quantity Takeoff Take Place?

Quantity takeoffs are generally performed early on during the bidding process.

During the estimation process, a quantity surveyor may have to make frequent adjustments to the material and quantity takeoff, typically due to:

      • Design changes
      • Additional engineering requirements 
      • Changes in what the client wants
 So, the material and quantity takeoff is often a living document that undergoes many changes until a design is finalised and a bid is secured. While this may not be the case for smaller projects, large or complex projects will almost certainly require many revisions to the quantity takeoff.
