Crofton Quantity Surveying

Bluebeam Measurement Service

If you enjoy your work, but when a new pile of drawings arrive you would prefer to skip the laborious measuring and go straight to the more interesting tasks, then our measurement service could be for you.

You can send your drawings to us by email or memory stick and we will measure everything you instruct us to measure. We calibrate and copy each drawing, measure it using colours to group together the different materials and sizes, and clearly label each element with a cross-reference to the NBS or Specification. When we return your drawings to you, the totals will be ready for you to put straight into your Estimate, Cost Plan or Bill of Quantities.

The measured drawings will show how the totals have been reached and you can easily make adjustments to those totals if a new drawing arrives late in the day, or we can do that for you. We are familiar with the requirements of NRM1, NRM2 and SMM7.

We use Bluebeam Revu software for measuring which we have found to be an accurate, easy to use and relatively inexpensive take-off package which is perfect for quantity surveying and estimating.
