Measurement Verification

Verification of Contractor’s measurement is a progressive task starting with IFC quantities and through to final agreed As-Built quantities (Figure 3). Discrepancies identified during verification are flagged and Company’s interpretation can be added in addition to Contractor’s figures. As both the Contractor’s and Company’s version are preserved within the MTO you can easily report and analyze differences between Contractor and Company interpretations of the measurement.


The MTO (Material Take Off) screen contains all information from the MTO and is the main working area for measurement review. The data can be browsed by Document, CBS (Compensation Breakdown Structure), or by CBS and Document. Choose the desired structure in the toolbar.
