Post  shifreen on Wed Jun 09, 2010 2:24 pm

As we know Taking Off, sometimes spelled as "taking-off" or "takeoff", is a main part for creating a BOQ in cost estimation process in construction industry. Quantity Surveyors/Estimators are use construction drawings and start taking off quantities of items they will need from those drawings in order to prepare a estimation. They can use drawings, either manually or electronically.
