The QTY Calculator is used to calculate the volume of concrete required for External Beams, Edge Beams, Internal Beams, Piers and Pad Footings.
Note: A Concrete Slab top thickness will not use this QTY Calculator. It will calculate from a Work Groups Items Auto QTY equation within the item setup. See Cost Schedule Items to learn more ►
|Description||The Description field is typically the name and or size of the Item required.|

|Width (mm) |
|The Width and Height fields are used to enter the dimensions of the Item required in which the Length will be used to calculate the Volume.
E.g. Footing Size 300mm wide x 600mm deep/height
|The Total column shows the Total Volume (m3) required for each line item as well as a combined total with and without a waste percentage %.|
|Total Length||This calculates the Total Length of all the Item Lengths entered.|
|Sub Total||The Sub Total calculates the Total Volume of all the entered Items without Waste.|
|Waste||This is the percentage of Waste to be added.|
