Priorities and difficulties in QS’ manual calculation

1. Time consuming to analyse and identify

2. Preparation time to set up the excel format

Strength of software application

1.3D view for better visualization and clarity of model designed. Able to capture missing element easily from 1 look of the building

2. Help us to easily identify the missing elements

3. Auto generation of quantities for TAS after completion in TRB.
