Question 

3 The Project Manager is happy with your report (A1 assessment) identifying the ASMM sections and sub-sections and measurement process for the proposed construction of the Baldivis Library Block. However, he has some time constraints and only needs specific trades measured and priced. The client wants the pricing back as soon as possible, so to complete the task sooner, the Project Manager has provided the list of trades and sub-trades and one partially completed trade. He has requested that all other trades be per this format. Additionally, there are a few clarifications listed below which must be included.

Question

4 Often, when we prepare Estimates and Bill of Quantities for Tenders, we never have 100?sign Development (construction documents). However, the degree of accuracy of the estimate depends on the information available, the method used and the skill of the Estimator. Generally, the more detailed information we have, the more accurate the estimate will be. Research the importance of preparing an accurate quantity take-off and advise and discuss three (3) implications to the project/tender if the quantity take-off is inaccurate.
