Bill Of Quantities (BOQ)
A BOQ is a very detailed document that itemises all of the quantities of materials, parts and labour in a construction project. This is measured from detailed design drawings and is used by the developers and contractors for the tendering process. The BOQ can either be un-costed or costed depending how the developer uses the document. The BOQ contains a high level of accuracy and can also be used to facilitate the administration of the project, for example the processing of any variations and monthly progress payments.
