INTEGRATED CAD & ESTIMATING SOFTWARE FOR BUILDERS AND ARCHITECTS!

If you’re a builder, developer or designer this could be just what you’ve been waiting for. A low cost subscription-based, fully integrated CAD and estimating software platform. One that drafts building plans whilst the software simultaneously estimates the costs of the project! BuildingWorks is perfect for new builds, extensions, conversions and refurbs. It produces architect-quality drawings for planning applications and building regs. And produces stunning 3D models, a full Bill of Quants and detailed costings… before your competition can blink. Subscribe from just £58/user/month+VAT.

Enjoy total control

The combined power of these two modules puts you fully in charge. Having design software is great. Knowing the cost of the project at the same time is really valuable. Having an existing drawing that you can trace for an instant cost is another level.

Manage time well

The key to improving profitability and productivity is down to the efficiencies you’ll see through the joined up thinking between the estimate and Design modules. This deep integration will keep your projects on track and your business on course.

Be highly productive

BuildingWorks will help you develop your schemes, draft planning application drawings, get the project priced up in detail with a full BoQ, help you analyse it, produce profit and cashflow reports, material and labour schedules… we could go on.

Feel empowered

BuildingWorks is truly dynamic. The live analysis of costs and thermal properties of the specification, linked to the library of BIM objects give you options. You have the data at your fingertips to make big decisions more easily.

Enjoy being efficient

It’s never been more important to maintain a decent profit right now. With BuildingWorks you won’t be keying in all the information at least twice. As every alteration is made, the effect of the change cascades across the entire project.

Stay on top of planning

Planning permission becomes much easier when you can quickly produce drawings suitable for planning application submissions and building control working drawings. And significantly - easily alter them when requested to do so.

DESIGN, COST, CONTROL. THAT'S DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION.

BuildingWorks does things differently. Nothing else on the market shows you the immediate impact of your design and specification decisions on project cost and energy performance. The business benefits are endless. It’s a practical BIM software platform that allows you to seamlessly design, evaluate energy performance and estimate the cost of residential new build homes, extensions, conversions and property refurbishment. It has a huge library of intelligent practical BIM products - real materials and objects with rich manufacturer product data. And the QS module gives you Elemental Bill of Quantities, Work section Bill of Quantities, priced or unpriced, with manufacturer brands named or unbranded.
