Design and estimate your building project seamlessly.

If you’re a builder, developer or designer this is just what you’ve been waiting for. BuildingWorks is a low cost subscription-based, fully integrated CAD and estimating software platform. Made for residential new build homes, extensions, conversions and property refurbishment. As you draft building plans the software simultaneously estimates the costs of the project. Its library of intelligent practical BIM products is packed with real materials and objects and rich manufacturer product data. Nothing else on the market shows you the immediate impact of your design and specification decisions on project cost and energy performance. And there’s a QS module for a full Bill of Quantities. The business benefits are endless.



Win profitable jobs - fast - with 3D models and professional quotes. Cost up your building projects quickly (take-off from a PDF or generate the plan yourself), and review the specification to get the cost/energy performance balance right. Tendering? You can also produce a priced or unpriced Bill depending on who it’s for.


Draft planning application drawings, get the development priced up in detail, review the spec’ and comply with SAP, produce profit and cashflow reports, working drawings, Gantt charts and schedules of labour, materials and plant. Nail prices with contractors and sub-contractors using the accurate Bill of Quantities.


Produce sketch schemes, building plans, and impressive 3D visualisations in less time than ‘traditional CAD’ solutions. Suitable for planning applications and building regs. Optimise your designs with instant cost and energy performance feedback. Give clients a detailed NRM Bill of Quantities - at no extra cost to you.


De-risk your projects. Draft planning application and working drawings for your scheme, cost the development instantly, review the spec' to get the cost/energy performance balance right, analyse your anticipated profit and cashflow. Use the NRM Bill of Quantities to check on any variables as the project progresses.


Want to produce your documents quickly and with absolute ease? As you take-off your plan in the Design module, the Estimate module automatically gives you a full cost breakdown. At a click of a button you have a formal NRM Bill of Quantities - priced or unpriced depending on your need.
