Create a complete Cost Plan (in Elements if required) with a direct link to a BoQ for Cost Plan rate build up and the production of a detailed BoQ based on the Cost Plan. Automatic build up of elemental rates.
Cost Analysis Module
A full Elemental Cost Analysis with costs per area, ratios and cost per elemental unit can be produced.
Progress Valuations Module and Variation Orders
This module allows the calculation of monthly progress payments based on a percentage per Activity, or quantity or value per item per Location within a WinQS project.
There is NO need to create a separate WinQS project or spreadsheet to do the monthly valuations.
Once this module is applied to a WinQS project ALL the current WinQS quantities are LOCKED (and SAVED) as the Contract Quantities together with the Contract Rates.
Using all the normal WinQS functions new items can be added & measured and adjustments can be made to contract dimensions thereby recording changes to the original Contract quantities resulting in a running Final Account.
All of these changes made in the WinQS project each month, will now be used to calculate the monthly Valuations.
For each period a new Valuations report is created that shows BOTH the Current and Previous Valuation amounts together with a NETT amount valued this month or period and the original Contract Quantities/Amounts.
Each month or periods information is saved so that current & previous valuation data is always available and previous Valuation Reports can always be printed.
WinQS has introduced a new function in terms of Variation Orders. This can be used in WinQS where the dongle/license has the Valuation Module activated.
What is a Variation Order (VO) in WinQS?
Variation Orders in WinQS will assist users to ADD and OMIT dimensions/values against these Instructions/Scope Changes after the document was CCR locked with the Variation Orders option. Users will also be able to print Variation Order Reports, detailing these changes from the Contract. Reference can be made to the official Variation Order or Site Instruction numbers.
The VO number in WinQS is therefore a code similar to the ISC code.
Please read the WinQS help file on how to create, apply, print, etc Variation Orders.
Financial Review/Cost Report Module
This module allows a contract to be monitored and reported on as variances from the original Contract Value. It displays all the extras and savings in a periodic Financial Review/Cost report for full Cost Control and Reporting.
There is NO need to create a separate WinQS project or spreadsheet to produce a monthly Cost Report as you can use the same WinQS project, containing the original Contract or Tender quantities to do this.
When this module is applied to a WinQS project ALL the current WinQS quantities are LOCKED (and SAVED) as the Contract Quantities together with the Contract Rates.
Using all the normal WinQS functions new items can be added & measured and adjustments can made to contract dimensions thereby recording changes to the original Contract quantities resulting in a running Final Account.
Any adjustments made to the WinQS project will then alter the Estimated Final Cost (EFC).
All of these changes made in the WinQS project each month will result in a running Final Account on a monthly basis and this running Final Account will generate the WinQS Cost Report.
These changes are then reported against the Contract values within the Financial Review or Cost Report that can be printed.
Each period a new Cost Report is generated which displays the changes BOTH from the original Contract values and the previous Cost Report reports values.
Tender Analysis Module
This module in WinQS allows up to 6 different rates to be analysed and a report printed.
Evaluatation of a Tender document against an Estimate base rate will highlight anomalies in rates from each different tenderer as well as percentage variances from the base rate or estimate rate.
The 1st page is a detailed report showing 6 different rates & amounts with the Highest or Lowest rate highlighted for every item in the document.
The second page is a Summary report containing an Analysis of the Sections/Schedules of the document showing the % difference per contractor.
The 3rd is a Variance Report that displays all of the rates higher/lower than a selected % of a chosen rate.
Finally, a Most Expensive Items report generates a printout showing all the items that make up say 25% of a project’s value.
JBCC/CPAP Payment Module
This module generates ALL the monthly payment certificate reports in terms of the JBCC Principal Building Agreement and includes:
CPAP (Escalation) Calculations
in accordance with the JBCC Escalation Provisions.
Certificate, Notifications & Recovery Statements
All the necessary reports are printed as required for the JBCC Agreement.
JBCC Minor Works Agreement
All necessary certificate & detailed report requirements for this Agreement are generated.
