FAST, POWERFUL ESTIMATING SOFTWARE FOR BUILDERS AND QUANTITY SURVEYORS!

BuildingWorks Estimate is the perfect estimating software for builders, trade, QS's AND designers. Estimate the build costs of domestic building work such as new builds, extensions, conversions and refurbishments - including all the materials, labour and plant. You'll automatically get Bills of Quantities (NRM) and business-winning customer quotes. Packed full of expert knowledge of the building industry, the software comes with a big rates library linked to updated building material prices so you can quickly get started. Subscribe from just £24+VAT a month.

Want to save time and reduce errors and costs?

Be so much more efficient

With BuildingWorks you won’t be duplicating your efforts, keying in all the information at least twice. And if you need to make alterations, the effect of the change cascades across the entire project. You’ll avoid errors and information loss, and save time on reworking.

Check the project is worth it

Is the project viable? Is there sufficient profit margin? BuildingWorks provides everything you need to evaluate the feasibility and profitability of a project. And that’s because the software quickly and easily itemises all the materials, labour and plant required to construct the job.

Get an automatic NRM/BoQ

An instant professional quality Bill of Quantities (NRM) reports produced directly from your estimate. Including Elemental BOQ, Work section BOQ, priced or unpriced, with manufacturer brands named or unbranded (available with BuildingWorks Estimate Professional QS).

Stress-free management

Cost reports, material schedules, profit and cashflow forecasts and more. With spreadsheet style grid and pivot table reports for data mining you can quickly get to the business end of where your costs are going and how to optimise your profits.

Deal with changes easily

You can review the job in real-time, swapping products and rates in and out of the project. You can then supply the client with a new quotation, full Bill of Quantities (NRM), detailed costings, build program and full schedule of works itemising everything required to construct the project.

Offer the latest in digital data

Our library has almost 10,000 rates and 15,000 objects, each one packed with 2D and 3D geometry descriptions of the product, plus U-values, sizes and branding. They’re all available from the UK’s leading manufacturers, each one costed and regularly price checked. Competitors watch out!

ACCURATE COSTS TAILORED FOR YOUR BUSINESS

You can use the Estimate module straight out of the box or customise for your business. As you’d expect, it instantly calculates profits on the job - and for complete control you can edit margins to suit including your material, labour & plant mark-up. It also calculates instant wastage out of the box (again rates customisable by you). Swap building products in and out of your estimate to compare how they impact your budget or the U-value or thermal value for real time review of your decisions. Plus customise the rates, the prices of materials, labour and plant, the usage factors and labour productivity, profit margins, wastage factors…you can customise to your heart's content…
