General Questions

“QTO” stands for quantity takeoff and it is basically a list of material quantities required to complete a construction project. The construction takeoff services are usually offered by professional estimators and can be outsourced from companies like QTO Estimating. Most of the companies hire full-time staff to do the task of measuring quantities and for the preparation of BOQs. But there are still many contractors and housebuilders who outsource material estimating services in order to reduce the load on in-house estimators.
