Create a Bill of Quantities on a Main Contract using the Project's Budget

Objective

To create line items on a main contract's Bill of Quantities (BOQ) using the line items from a project's budget. 

Background

After your initial project budget is finalized in the Budget tool, it is recommended that you lock the budget. Once locked, you can use the steps below to quickly add line items on your main contract's BOQ. When using this method, you have two options:

  • Create one line item on the main contract's BOQ for each line item on the project's budget.
    The example below shows you the line items on a budget that can be used to create corresponding line items on a main contract's BOQ. For example, 01-000-Purpose: Labour, 01-002-Instructions: Labour, 01-010 Project Manager: Labour, and so on.

  • Create one line item on the main contracts BOQ for each division summary on the project's budget.
    The example below shows you all of the division summaries on a budget. For example, 01-General Requirements, 02-Site Construction, 03-Concrete, and so on.
