Precise Material Takeoffs
In today's economy your takeoffs must be accurate so you can be competitive. We can help you by using BIM technology, coupled with 30 years of experience in the construction industry to develop precise material takeoffs.
The staff at Optimized-Construction Consulting has been providing quantity takeoff services for more than 12 years on projects ranging from small single-family homes to multi-building commercial projects totaling 500,000 sq. ft. or more.
Quantity takeoffs based on BIM technology give you a competitive edge, because our estimates are exact. Our CAD system counts literally every piece of material in your plan that we tell it to count.
Framing takeoff prices start at $.025 per sq. ft. under roof.
What we deliver
Typically we deliver takeoffs in Excel Spread Sheet (*.XLS) format.
The spreadsheet contains 3 tabs. The first tab contains drawing information and takeoff notes. The second tab contains the quantity takeoff broken down by level. The third tab contains a summary of all materials listed with total quantity of each item included in the entire project.
We can quickly turn a "napkin sketch" into set of construction drawings. And while entering a plan our CAD program, simultaneously develops a 3D model. The model can help your client understand the architecture in a way not possible with 2D construction drawings.

Advanced Framing Techniques - By using Advanced Framing techniques you can increase the energy efficiency of the homes you build and save money on the framing package. Optimized-Construction Consulting can help you quantify the savings. After we enter your plans in our CAD system we can utilize multiple wall framing rule sets to compare material lists. Once entered in our CAD system we can frame a structure using your standard framing rules and generate a takeoff. Then with a few button picks re-frame and regenerate the takeoff using advanced framing rules i.e.; single top and bottom plates, studs at 24" OC, etc. Compare and see what you save.
Enhanced Roof Framing Diagrams - Incorrect use of material on a roof framing package can be very expensive. With our CAD system we cam model the roof to ensure that the roof works as shown on the plan and deliver a precise framing takeoff. Then we can generate a roof framing plan with every board labeled with the nominal length of lumber you should use to cut the rafters. Avoid miscuts.
Wall Panel Drawings - Do you need to keep your framing crew busy during wet or cold weather? We can enter your plan and generate wall panel drawings. Build them on-site or in a warehouse. Quality will improve and you will reduce material waste. Also you use a framing crew with a lower skill set and maintain top quality.
