Explanation:
Albert is on the right track but as your question has no further context I would stay neutral and say "calculation/computation of quantity"

Explanation:
You can also use metric calculation. But in what context is the word used in italian? I am asking this since you do not want BQ .

itemised estimate


Explanation:
in rete ho trovato la fotocopia di un "computo metrico" che non e' altro che un preventivo dettagliato
http://astrea.it/bossi/co_me_pd.htm
Il prezzo unitario dei lavori si basa sul metro quadrato e per questo si chiama metrico. Ma la cosa importante non e' tanto l'unita' di misura quanto il fatto che si offra tutti i dettagli ed i costi dei lavori.

Il termine "itemised estimate" e' anche su Eurodicautom. Itemized se vai verso l'inglese americano, naturalmente.
