VFORM Consultants (Pvt) Ltd

VFORM Consultants (Pvt) Ltd was founded in 2006 as Chartered Quantity Surveyors, and presently provide all Quantity Surveying services, Project Management services, and services on contractual and special services related to construction works such as dispute management and adjudication. They have wide work experience in Sri Lanka as well as overseas including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Oman, Maldives and Seychelles.

The Project

The basic requirement was to minimize the time spent on the pre contact activities, including change management procedures, while increasing the level of accuracy.

The Outcome

We have purchased 3 standalone licences and 1 portable licence. Then the resource allocation for the pre contract quantity surveying activities was limited to 2-3 numbers for a medium to large scale project. As a result of that, we have achieved successful time targets and higher level of accuracy for;

  • Area calculations,
  • Change management during pre-contract stage,
  • Taking off measurements,
  • Compiling BOQs,
  • Use of reports and records.

With the use of CostX® 2D for over a 4 year period, we have decided to proceed further with 1 licence for CostX® to get the maximum benefit of time, cost and quality.
