Automatic BQ Pricing
This paper reports on a pilot study under¬taken by the authors for the Royal Institu¬tion of Chartered Surveyors Educa¬tional Trust aimed at developing a method of automatic pricing of bills of quantities.
A method using a system of multipliers is described for Concrete Work and based on the rates contained in Laxton's 1989 build¬ing price book . When tested on three 'live' bills of quantities, the method was found to be within one percent and six percent of the price book for larger projec¬ts and smaller projects respectively, and within 1.25 percent for the aggregated bills.
