Quantity Surveyor Section – Bill of Quantities

It is been eight days since my last post. I had other business responsibilities, as well. Now I can continue to write about this theme. I promised that I will continue to write about creating Bill of Quantities.

For those of you who are the pioneers in construction business and who do not know what is Bill of Quantities (BoQ), this is a document used in tendering in the construction industry in which materials, parts, and labor (and their costs) are itemized. It also (ideally) details the terms and conditions of the construction or repair contract and itemizes all work to enable a contractor to price the work for which he or she is bidding. Bills of quantities are prepared by quantity surveyors (quantities and costing) and building estimators (technically).

In NAV4Construction, we prepare BoQ for each project. We will find BoQ on Departments->Quantity Surveyor Section->Planning & Execution->Bill Of Quantity.


We start with input ‘Job No.’ (created Project) and after that we continue with input of ‘Job Task’. Task is the smaller part of the projects. Usually, task is basic contract or contract annex or some claim… Combination of jobs and job tasks enables us many different BoQ with the same BoQ number. BoQ can be configured in different currencies, depend of project currency settings. On document header, we can link project fix cost definitions (I will detailed describe this in some later posts). After header data, in BoQ lines, we need to fill ‘Construction Position’ and its quantities by contract specification. About ‘Construction Positions’ calculation, I will write in next post.

‘Bill of Quantity’ has next statuses:

  • Opened: Status when we create new document. We can insert, modify and delete all data on header and lines.
  • Released: We get this status when we finish with data insert. In this status, nobody cannot insert, modify and delete any data. From this status, we can print ‘Quote’.
  • Accepted: This status said that contract is signed and after that all data are locked. This status is reserved only for users with specially rights.
  • In progress: We can get this status only from ‘Accepted’ status by users with specially rights. This status enables modify very small part of data if we need to change some articles in contract.

Will be continue…

  11. I really believe that a property foreclosure can have a significant effect on the borrower’s life. Foreclosures can have a 6 to ten years negative impact on a debtor’s credit report. A borrower who’s applied for a mortgage or any kind of loans for instance, knows that a worse credit rating is usually, the more hard it is for any decent mortgage loan. In addition, it may affect any borrower’s power to find a quality place to lease or hire, if that will become the alternative real estate solution. Thanks for your blog post.
