Risk Analysis of Quantities
On average, our risk analyzes of quantities show half to a few percent of the miscalculated amounts in the tender documents. There is a tendency for large public projects, which are offered on the basis of the quantities calculated by the architects and engineers, to contain incorrect quantities. The successful contractor should therefore recalculate the amounts indicated in the tender dossier, otherwise he will have to take responsibility for it after signing the contract.
From the point of view of the risk, it is good for the contractor if the quantities are indicated in the tender documents. This can save some time in connection with the offer. However, it is crucial to have an overview of the quality of billing as early as possible, so that as a contractor you have full control when the quantity risk is transferred to you.
Normally only a few weeks are provided for the calculation of the quantities, therefore it must run quite smoothly. In Vico Office, you can quickly extract detailed quantities from your 3D setup (Quantity Determination) and check your quantities. This gives you complete control over the project before transfer. For more information about 2D + 3D quantity extraction, see Vico Office.

“With such large projects, it quickly costs millions when the timeline has passed, and the cost of using this method quickly becomes savings.”
– Niels Uhrenfeldt, Project Manager, Region North Jutland
Schedules in large Gantt charts (such as MS Project or Primareva) or spreadsheets, as a result of the scheduling method, contain some inherent risks that are difficult and sometimes impossible to verify. These risks can be visualized easily and simply in Vico Office. Vico Office uses a location-based planning principle (cycle program) that facilitates the analysis of your schedules. For more information about location-based planning, see Vico Office.
With the risk management of Vico Office you get:
Certainty that the project is constantly being optimized to ensure continuous staffing
A stable flow without unnecessary dependencies between activities
Certainty that multiple tasks are not planned at the same time and in the same place
By using Vico Office to manage your risk schedules, you can reduce execution time by at least 10% – and often even more – without increasing staff effort or risk in the project, compared to traditional planning methods.

Experience from a variety of public and private construction projects has shown that risk management with Vico Office can reduce unforeseen costs by over 20%. The quality of 3D building models is very important for the number of unforeseen costs to be expected for the construction project.
