Architecture Model Quantity Take-Off (CSI UniFormat)

Architecture & Engineering
Construction

Architectural models are a good way of presenting a 3D version of your architectural design, interior design, or urban design project.   These computer-rendered models enable you to pull essential data to run calculations on cost, materials, and more if the data is extracted and processed for insights. 

In this pre-built data app, create smart reports using 3D models from Revit. This Architecture Model Quantity Take-Off enables you to pull data from a 3D view and calculate the quantity of material based on a common classification method- UniFormat II. 

The Objective Architecture Model Quantity Take-Off (UniFormat)

The purpose of this report is to get an instant quantification of model elements and improve communications and coordination among all project participants using a classification method provided to project managers to control project scope, cost, time, and quality.

Using this data app you can run a scenario analysis for optimal project outcomes. 

How Does an Architecture Model Quantity Take-Off (UniFormat) Data App Work? 

Extract quantities from a Revit Architecture model within this project to automatically breakdown quantities per UniFormat II classification. 

Get insights into quantities as models are updated and sent to Toric.

Please note it’s important to have the most up-to-date Revit plugin to take full advantage of this pre-built data app. 

What is UniFormat ? 

The ASTM E1557 "Standard Classification for Building Elements and Related Sitework - UNIFORMAT II"   provides for a point of agreement on costs for all project stakeholders by providing a common structure linking the building program, specifications, and estimates.

The elemental costs include material costs, labor costs, and subcontractor overhead and profit. According to UniFormat II - element cost is calculated by:

  1. multiplying the element unit cost (also called unit rate) times the quantity of the element 
  2. summing the costs of the assemblies that constitute the element, or
  3. summing the material and labor costs of the system components that make up the element.

At any stage of cost estimating, elemental estimates can be based on elemental rates and quantities or the summing of assembly and component costs, or both. Using one approach for some elements does not restrict the use of other approaches for other elements in that same estimate.
