How to use software for construction takeoffs
Additionally, Integro created BuildingWorks takeoff software specifically for builders and developers to make it easy to use.Once you have imported your building plan, trace over them using simple drag and drop tools.

All the time you are adding materials, the software is intelligently putting together your estimate, quote, Bill of Quants, Gantt chart and more reports in real-time. At any point, you can switch between Design and Estimate to review your construction cost and make any changes necessary.
Automatically produce 2D elevations and 3D models from your plans
Not only does the software produce the estimate, Bill of Quantities (NRM), quote and a complete range of management reports automatically, but also it also simultaneously produces 2D elevations and detailed 3D models. And there’s more! You can easily create photorealistic 3Ds using life like finishes and even place your model on site.
