Concrete is widely used in the construction industry and its a key material required for the construction of the building as well as civil works. The accurate estimation of concrete quantity is very important and a basic step for bidding on a new job or tender. For complex projects, it becomes a little bit complicated to do the concrete takeoff. More importantly, if there are concrete pavements of varying dimensions and thicknesses. There might be a case where a lot of cast-in-place concrete is required to construct the building foundation. Another case is the concrete estimate for the structural walls, beams, and columns, etc. Moreover, many contractors also want to estimate the rebar quantity to place the order with the supplier. In such scenarios, it becomes quite difficult for a contractor to do the concrete estimate. So outsourcing concrete estimating services from some notable companies like QTO Estimating can make the job easy for you.
Why Outsource Concrete Estimates?
If you are a construction company and you want to win a tender, it is very important to take part in the bidding process. To win a tender, the bid needs to be lower as the overall bidding process is very transparent. For your bidding to be the lowest you need an accurate material takeoff and pricing estimate for your project.

Why Professional Help Is Important For Concrete Estimation?
One of the main reasons people believe in QTO Estimating is because we provide an accurate estimate and this increases the chance of winning bids depending on how much money they quote. For construction companies, where the business depends on winning a project through bidding, the quantity estimation plays an important role.
Another important reason you should get a price quote via an external and professional estimating company is that you don’t want to waste time and money. Most of the construction estimating softwares are very expensive and it requires a lot of effort and money to master the software. Also, the construction companies should focus on their actual project rather than wasting money on buying software and then training their employees to use that software.
Why do You Need to Have Detailed Concrete Takeoffs?
Before starting concrete construction, it is very important to have a bill of quantity (BOQ) or concrete takeoff for a project. Apart from this it also helps in estimating the project budget. The construction material takeoff also indicates how much material will be required and how much raw material you should have in stock. This will be very important for the construction companies because it ensures that the supply chain runs smoothly and work never stops at any given time.
