The recording of dimensions taken from drawings or schedules. The first stage in preparing bills of quantities.
A type of cost reimburseable contract under which the contractor is paid the ‘actual cost’ it incurs in carrying out the works, but is subject to a target cost which is agreed by the parties at the beginning of the project. At the end of the project, the parties apply a mechanism/formula to calculate whether savings were made or whether costs overran—the contractor will then either share the savings with the employer or contribute towards the overspend. See Practice Notes: Target cost contracts on construction projects and Pricing structures in construction contracts.
