The aim of the study is to present possibility of improving the scheduling technique of construction works through additional cost estimate takeoffs. The basic problems in this respect include the structure of the normalised processes and the way of takeoffs; in adapting to the level of the schedule details – the details of the work division structure. The solution of these problems propsoed the model of the complex cost estimate positionmodel using any number of takeoff units. This allows for the replenishment of databases of physical inputs with work directly related to tasks occurring in the work division structure in scheduling, what automates the process of scheduling.

Keywords: construction cost estimation, construction schedules, work division structure, additional quantities.
