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