Abstract

These introductory paragraphs outline some aspects of the function and form of Bills of Quantities in order to provide a working perspective to the main body of this paper. They have been deliberately confined to a number of pragmatic considerations directly related to the preparation and assembly of Bills of Quantities and do not touch upon philosophical, legal or contractual aspects of contract documentation.
