QUANTITY SURVEYORS PRELIMINARY COST PLAN ESTIMATES for Property, Architects


Development, Additions and Refurbishment: Estimate Format may be designed to suit individual Project Needs. Typically, BDSA Quantity Surveyors estimates have two main components:1. Main Elemental Costs and 2. Sub Elemental Costs.

1. Main Elemental Costs (up to 14 Main Elements) – An element describes the functional performance of a building component. A building element, e.g. roof, always performs the same function regardless of the building type, quality or location. One of the main advantages of using elemental estimates is that they facilitate easier cost attribution and cost planning, particularly early in the design process when full design details are not available. BDSA uses the following Main cost elements for cost estimating:


* . Preliminaries

* . Substructure

* . Superstructure

* . External Fabric

* . Internal Fabric

* . Internal Finishes

* . Fittings

* . Internal Services

* . Site Works

. * External Services

* . Special Provisions


For a full list of Definitions, Elements and Sub Elements Refer to the AIQS Cost Control Manual Vol1-3

2.Sub Elemental Costs (up to 46 Sub Elements)– Sub Elements are the individual building components that make up the Main Elements. There are between 3 and 10 Sub Elements per each Main Element. One of the main advantages of using Sub Elements is that they allow cost targets to be established and costs controlled for each individual component of the building. The Sub Elements used by BDSA Quantity Surveyors include the following:

* . Floors

* . Roof

* . Columns

* . Walls

* . Windows and Doors

* . Wall, Floor and Ceiling Finishes

. * Sanitary Fixtures and Plumbing

* . Water Supply

* . Gas Services

* . Air Conditioning

* . Fire Protection

* . Electric, Light and Power

* . Communications

. * Landscaping
