This class demonstrates how to use Autodesk Quantity Takeoff software to estimate a project during early design. You will learn how to take advantage of intelligent model-linked workflows from Autodesk Revit software and how to perform estimate updates as the project design progresses.

Key Learnings

  • Use Sage Estimating® to compare estimates among several design iterations
  • Use Quantity Takeoff to compare documents among several design iterations
  • Use Quantity Takeoff to create estimates during various stages of the design
  • List the benefits of using Quantity Takeoff to generate estimates from revised project documents

Kevin R. Miller Ph.D. is the Chair of the Construction Management Program at Brigham Young University. He has worked as an estimator for several companies in Utah and Arizona including Layton Construction Company, and W. E. O’Neil. He has also been a certified trainer for Timberline Software. Kevin has made presentations for AGC, ABC and ASPE on both the state and national levels demonstrating how electronic documents can benefit the estimating process. He has presented regularly at Estimating Academy's sponsored by AGC and ASPE. Kevin is also teaching QTO and Navisworks in his estimating classes. These two products which are made by Autodesk allow estimators to work in the BIM world. Quantity takeoffs, clash detections, and sequenced presentations are now at the estimator's finger tips. Kevin has also taught at Arizona State University and the University of Florida. He has served as the Chairman of ASPE's National Education Board.
