The positive engagement of contractors and the accuracy of tenders is essential for clients in the competitive tendering environment. Slattery believes that the capital outlay of a Bill of Quantities is vastly outweighed by the reduction of tender prices received. In addition, a Bill of Quantities provides an even playing field to all tenderers, shortens the tendering process and increases the quality of tenders received.
Secondary benefits of a Bill of Quantities include the independent cross-check of construction documentation prior to tender, and as a useful aid in the pricing of variations and assessment of progress claims during construction.
The preparation of Bills of Quantities over all sectors has been a fundamental component of Slattery’s services over the past 40 years.
