Construction software for House Builders and Developers. Specifically designed for residential developers and house builders of new homes.

If residential new build, apartments or conversions of buildings into flats is what your company focuses on, then BuildingWorks construction software for house builders and developers will suit you down to the ground.

Perhaps you;

  • Build high end projects for private clients?
  • Or maybe you build new homes speculatively?
  • Or maybe you do local authority affordable housing?

How will it help you?

Running a development firm is a complex business. And an expensive one. The rewards are high if you get it right. But the risks are high too. It’s also quite stressful for all involved.

Every firm’s goal is to improve profitability and to improve productivity, and that is BuildingWork’s simple goal in life.

The BuildingWorks difference is that it combines two key elements of the building process in one single interface – Design and Estimate.

You might be looking at other individual platforms such as just CAD, or just Estimating software, and there are certainly some high end packages including BIM (Building Information Modelling), but they are often hard to use, require training and expensive to implement. In fact most supposed “BIM” software packages are individual software which talk to other packages with varying degrees of success.

The key we believe to improving profitability and productivity is down to the efficiencies you’ll see through deep integration. Certainly no other solutions offer the “Joined up Thinking” of BuildingWorks.

BuildingWorks will help you develop your housing schemes, draft planning application drawings, get the development priced up in detail, help you review the specification to get the cost/energy performance balance right, produce profit and cashflow reports, working drawings, material and labour schedules so you know what’s needed where and when, Gantt charts to keep your project on track…


Whether you are part of a connected multidisciplinary construction team or just one supercharged person doing everything, BuildingWorks enables data to be easily shared, saving time, avoiding mistakes, making you more profitable.

BuildingWorks is a truly integrated building information management system. True BIM. Practical BIM. All that said, you can choose which of the two modules will benefit your business and subscribe just to those. We’re flexible!

BuildingWorks – Design is the perfect CAD solution for developments. Easily produce sketch schemes, building plans, elevations, 3D models and Photo-realistic 3D visuals for clients or planning applications. It does the lot. Or if you employ the services of an outsourced architect (maybe you receive the plans printed or as PDFs or DXF’s/DWG’s), you can bring them in to BuildingWorks, make alterations to the drawings if you need to, trace the rest, and the Estimate module will price it instantly.

BuildingWorks -Estimate will help you price up the project either directly from the drawing or quickly built up using our pre-populated residential building rates library. If you are tendering to win a project use the automatically produced customer friendly quotes or NRM (SMM7 style/Bill of Quantities) tender documents. It also automatically produces a whole host of useful reports (no typing required) for the profit focused developer, to show you the money you’re likely to make on the project, whether you can afford to negotiate with your client or where you can negotiate with suppliers and contractors and importantly, gives you a handle on your cashflow.
