    The meaning of abreviaation MTO - Material Take Off

    Hello everybody!

    Could you tell me what MTO or Material Take Off in full means?

    Does it mean a list of used materials?

    Thank you.

    I am sorry about misspelling the abbreviation in question.

    Google it. It is a term used in quantity surveying to break down a building into quantifiable items for the purpose of estimation or pricing.
