Objectives:
 The objectives of this report are to:
o Take off dimensions from industry standard drawings and input correctly onto standard
dimension paper.
o Create a cost estimate for a proposed building
o Create a Cost Plan for a proposed building
o Use BIM software to extract quantities to produce a cost estimate
Background:
Measurement and cost planning are essential skills for construction personnel at the design stage. Cost
planning ensures that costs are accurately built up and updated as the design of a project develops from
inception to construction. Measurement and cost planning are indeed different in discipline but they
both require skill acquired, not only in school but through experience and commercial knowledge. RICS
have introduced a specific document to ensure industry standard consistency in the production and
measurement of estimates/cost plans, NRM1 (New Rules of Measurement). NRM1 outlines the rules
associated with creating estimates/cost plans as well as highlighting the information required to produce
the cost estimates. This consistent approach will allow for more accurate estimates into the future. The
development of IT, namely BIM (Building Information Modelling) will also assist in all aspects of the
construction projects and will become an integral item in the industry workflows.
Task:
From the industry drawings provided you are required to prepare
 An estimate for the basement of the attached building
 A cost plan for the Superstructure of the building
 A cost plan – based upon level 2 codes for the building; based upon the results of the cost plan
for the superstructure and other given values
 A cost estimate for a building with quantities extracted from a BIM model
Procedure:
The report needs to be structured to cover the following points:
 Create drawing register
 Take off required quantities as per NRM1 code and description.
o Query sheet to be kept and maintained during the take-off process
 Required estimates and cost plans to be produced with the required detail
 Carry out the BIM exercise in the computer Lab and compute the quantities

Learning outcomes:
On successful completion of this assignment, students will be expected, at threshold level, to be able to:
o Define and select cost planning and modelling techniques for building projects [LO
1]
o Describe the sequence of taking off quantities in accordance with RICS standard
documentation. [LO4]
o Outline the rules of the relevant method of measurement ensuring
comprehensive bill descriptions [LO5]
o Prepare basic measurements for a range of building elements [LO6]
o Use IT tools in the formulation of cost models and quantification [LO7]
