Virtual meter training and estimation: Meter is a detailed set of activities including measuring and obtaining the volumes and amounts of work required for a project. Each project consists of a set of many activities. And each activity has its own unique unit of measurement. For example, calculating the amount of license plate stone of a project is measured in square meters. Excavation of a project is in the form of cubic meters. Or calculate the area of ground cabling in a long way. Estimation is: calculating and measuring the number of materials needed to run a project in order to predict the required budget.
Estimation is usually the calculation of the amount of material required before the project is completed. And is done to estimate the cost of the project. In fact, meters and estimates are not different in structure. But they are different in application time and accuracy. When the employer intends to carry out a project, he estimates the cost of the project with the help of his office engineers or consultant.
Then, by holding a tender, it invites qualified contractors to participate in the tender based on the estimates made. The contractor’s office engineers also review the drawings and estimates after purchasing the bidding documents. To offer their price to participate in the tender according to their financial capacity, manpower and machinery and tools.
