while utilising the tools, methods, and strategies that help them in managing the multifaceted work. The bill of quantities, also known as the “BoQ” is a construction document, which is prepared by the construction consultant, which provides specific and quantifiable items of work in terms of the proposed development, forms of contracts, design information, and specifications of the master programme. Moreover, the measurement of these quantities can be done in number, area, length, and time. The bill of quantities is issued in order to form a pricing strategy for the processes involved in the work. These help tenderers in the estimation

The documents of the construction contract include the details of the agreement among the employer and the contractor according to which the contract defines the terms and conditions describing the flow of work to be carried out while identifying the commercial risks which are involved among the contracting stakeholders. The scope of work is represented by the drawings, which accurately describe the quantity and quality of work for pricing. Additionally, the bills of quantities are used for tendering which becomes part of the contract documents. However, the priced contract bills may require to be adjusted for integrating the amendments after the tender need for further design and development, negotiations and decision-making in terms of cost reductions in case the tender exceed the project budget. Most of the building contracts changes which can cause a variety of reasons where the original specification and design is changed according to the contract terms. The standardised form of the contract provides the idea of additional work, which is to be done describing the relevant rates of bills. Furthermore, the varied work is similar in nature and is to be carried out under different conditions.

Construction Management 46 [P2.1] Main Purpose of Specification Writing in the Construction and Built Environment Introduction The specification describes the materials and work that needs to be developed or required in construction. They do not include costs, quantities or information, and therefore they must be read by other information such as quantities, timetables and drawings. Specifications vary greatly depending on the stage of the project developed from the results (open specification) requires more design work for specific scripts (as scripts closed) when the project is already completed. Estimates or drawings include a graphic or visual representation of the work involved. Specifications include written descriptions of the quality of materials, processes and work that are necessary to complete the work in a way that is acceptable to the owner.
