Measurement & Abstract sheet for Load Bearing Structure | References for QSCT Termwork

This is just a sample, consider it to be an advise & not a correct solution!
We performed an estimation of quantities for the load bearing structure, a lot of work is still pending yet this post is being published on request from a number of classmates who'd wanted to have a sample to refer.

Following is a copy of The Measurement Sheet that we prepared for the load bearing structure.

After preparing the measurement sheet we compute the quantities and then prepare an abstract sheet with the specifications of the works to be done including the rates to prepare an estimate of expenses.

Following is the abstract sheet for load bearing structure

This is all done with reference to the guidlines of the Pune University Syllabus.

Please note that this is just for reference and not to be considered as the correct version of any abstract, still a lot of items are to be added to this sheet.

You can download the DSR that I referred by Clicking Here

Until then!
Thanks for Visiting

No fears when you have a team like this...


  1. Where is the plan of this estimate

    1. Hi, we regret that the plan for this estimate isn't included in the post.

  2. Why cant we make an abstract sheet in an measurement sheet itself
    As it can also lease the time required
    Whats the reason behind it
    Thus making an column of rates next to the quantity as it

    1. Hi Akshay, I understand that we can keep the column of rates next to the quantity as it is. This is generally the procedure adopted while preparing the two documents and just edited before publishing the two documents.

      It should be noted that the two documents though appearing to be the same have different purposes, measurement sheet is used to compute the quantities for billing & often a contractor might want to keep his rates confidential from competitors. Hence the rates is not presented while preparing the measurement sheet. The measurement sheet is often prepared by the onshore crew while the abstract sheet is much like a bidding document.

      Hope this cleared your concern, feel free to write for more information.
      Thank you
