Planning a construction project? You might need a bill of quantities (BOQ). A BOQ itemizes the specific materials and labor needed for the project so you can get accurate bids from contractors. In the field, BOQs are typically prepared by quantity surveyors or civil engineers who specialize in them. But even if you don't regularly prepare BOQs, it's worth knowing how they're made so you can evaluate the quality of the ones you see. Read on to learn everything you need to know about how to prepare an organized and reliable BOQ, as well as how to put this document to work for you during the planning and construction process.

The subject area of land surveying is very interesting and to become a licensed land surveyor you need to understand and be able to put into practice a wide range of land survey formulas as the majority of land surveying is based around mathematics and physics. In today's guide we shall look at land survey formulas in more detail. And if you are a Land Surveyor, here is an entire forum and hub for sharing surveying formulas.
There are hundreds of different land survey formulas, and each one serves its own purpose. Whenever a land surveyor is required to do a land survey they must first establish which land survey formulas are most appropriate for the type of land they are working with.
For land surveys that cover huge areas of land, the land surveyor will usually use a land survey formula that takes into account the curvature of the Earth to ensure a more accurate land survey. However, for smaller areas of land the land surveyor will tend to use a land survey formula that assumes the land is on a flat plane as the curvature of the Earth has such minimal effect.
Algebra and trigonometry make up a large number of the most commonly used land survey formulas. Trigonometry land survey formulas are typically used when measuring the height and angle of the land. In fact, land surveyors are one of the most prominent users of trigonometry formulas.
Other land survey formulas include quadratic equations, spherical trigonometry and spherical coordinates. Land surveyors must have a strong and thorough understanding of all of these land survey formulas and they form a huge part of any land surveying college courses.

Quantity surveying is the process of calculating the quantities of project scope works to meet the project objectives. A professional who practices quantity surveying is called a quantity surveyor (QS). A QS is well versed with calculations of quantities and also knows contracts and costs.
In this article, I am discussing the five tips to start your career as a quantity surveyor. The tips range from preparation before starting to completing the process in a logical sequence. Let us move to the tips.
After you have understood the project scope, drawings are the next step. A very common mistake made in quantity surveying is the overlooked drawing details. The quantity calculation is done from the drawings.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of creating 3D models that enhance the collaboration between stakeholders, facilitate quantity and material take-offs, visualize the project before construction. It has many other features as well. Read more about BIM here.
A quantity surveyor must be able to visualize the whole process of project construction before it is actually built. It takes effort, experience and hard work to do so. However, with the above listed five tips, you have read the quantity surveying basics that are enough to start your career.
