Building Estimation and Costing


Each building has its worth. Precise forecasting of the cost for any future projects is a vital skill for every civil engineer and cost estimator.

Our Building Estimation and Costing course is designed based on Autodesk's Quantity Takeoff software. This will help engineers and estimators make material costing fastly, easily, and more accurately.

This is one of the most useful courses for civil engineering and architectural students & professionals.

Why to learnWhy to learn?

As opposed to days using traditional methods, Quantity Takeoff helps one to perform a takeoff on a complete building information model in just minutes. The software offers better flexibility than typical databases or spreadsheets, enabling a smoother, more accurate workflow for cost estimators.

One can take benefit of digital property data to automatically or manually measure areas and count or price building components such as walls, doors, and window. One can create detailed materials reports much quicker than paper-based processes. One can keep their workflow digital and can ensure that reports, materials quantities, and other data remain up to date. Importantly, one can more efficiently count and quantify building components and their compositions.

Learning objectiveLearning Objectives:

CADD Center will help you to ace the associated features of Building Estimation and Costing:

  • Building estimation and costing from 2D AutoCAD drawings.
  • Creating synchronized, comprehensive project views that merge significant information from building information modeling (BIM) tools such as Revit® Architecture, Revit® Structure, and Revit® MEP software along with geometries, images, and data from other tools.
  • Measuring of areas and counting of building components automatically or manually, exporting to Microsoft Excel, and publishing to DWF™ format. Autodesk's Quantity Takeoff supports the takeoff of JPG, TIF, PDF, and other “nonintelligent” image formats.
  • Latest Autodesk technology in the areas of drawing, viewing, quantification, and markup capabilities, uniting design data and other vital information within an open and fluid architecture. So one can better keep track of changing variables without missing a beat.
  • Generating material quantity takeoffs and performing conceptual estimates, regardless of what phase users are in during a project—from design through preconstruction.

Learning OutcomeLearning Outcome:

  • Student will be able to identify quantities (takeoff) of the various materials involved in the project.
  • Student will know to create summaries and detailed quantity surveying reports quickly and easily.
  • Student will learn how to count and quantify all of your project design data more quickly and easily.
  • Student will know to generate quantities linked to specific objects.
  • Student will be able to perform interactive examination of 3D models for material cost estimating purposes.
  • Student can compile, update, and interact with quantity-related project data.
