Drawings Takeoff
Measurements of areas and quantities derived from drawings as opposed to in the field.


Purpose
Quantity takeoffs are required to produce estimates and budgets for different types of projects (maintenance and renewal).


Evaluation
Listed below are some of the merits and limitations of drawing takeoffs:
  • Drawing takeoffs are generally the preferred method over field takeoffs as they are more efficient to produce.
  • The drawings may not represent as-built conditions.
  • Some of the drawings may be missing, damaged or illegible.
