O2I Helped an International General Design and Construction Giant with BoQ for Proposed Building

Case Study on BoQ Services to Design and Construction Firm

The Client

Based out of the city of Chihuahua, Mexico, the client is a General Design and Construction contractor with international repute. With a number of prestigious building construction projects to its account, the client is known for its specialized services for industrial, institutional, and commercial properties. As an integral service provider, the client has carved a niche for itself by delivering cost-effective services within the stipulated time to its growing list of clients. With more than 600 top buildings to its name, the client focuses on safety and sustainability of the buildings through centralized service provisioning with BIM.

Requirement & Challenges

The client wanted help in creating a bill of quantity (BoQ) for a proposed extension to an existing building. The client wanted to understand the contractual requirements of the proposed extension in a professional way which adhered to the international codes and standards. They provided the drawings of the existing building as well as the proposed extension for BoQ generation. The requirement involved conducting a thorough material take out (MTO) for tasks including masonry, concrete works, excavation work, etc. The outputs needed to follow the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) format to ensure international standards and guidelines are cross-checked while deriving the BoQ.

The challenges included difficulty in understanding and analyzing the building drawings as everything was written in Spanish. This posed as a threat to delay the overall delivery of the project.

Our Solution

The proactive and skilled team at Outsource2india considered the language challenges at the initial analysis and devised a thorough communication strategy to involve the client along with a team of professional translators to do an accurate reading of the drawings. Once the client and the team were clear about the terminology used in the drawings, the BoQ task was swiftly carried out and completed within 5 working days. The client was extremely delighted at the proactivity of the team and the dedication for details and accuracy the team exhibited during the project. The team included 2 experienced expert drafters and a team leader to ensure smooth and precise execution of the project. We are now a choiced partner for this client and are working on a number of major projects with them.
