Software launched for SME builders to realise BIM potential
Friday, February 09th, 2018
BuildingWorks from Integro Construction Software is up and running! You can now see it, trial it and subscribe!
This revolutionary new subscription software platform for the residential building sector has been seven years in development in conjunction with the University of West of England, Technology Strategy Board, and Innovate UK.
End to end, fully integrated software for SME builders
Besides, BuildingWorks is said to be a game changer for SME construction companies, developers, surveyors and architects. It’s the first integrated platform of its kind, seamlessly bringing together CAD, estimating, project management and more, with one set of data flowing through the whole project from concept to completion. Furthermore, no more importing and exporting, double entry and inevitable errors. We believe it marks the end of the current fragmented approach to construction.
Additionally, Joined up thinking indicates building plan measurement or drawing of building plans. It calls on a library of over 15,000 data-rich BIM products and nearly 5000 rates to generate ‘live’ costs for materials, labour, rates and energy performance – plus a 3D model.
Review to reduce costs or change energy performance
Users can review the design in real-time, swapping products in and out of the project to compare how they impact on budget or U-value.
Furthermore, from their 2D planning and Building Regulation drawings, subscribers of the design and estimate modules will automatically (and instantly!) receive a client quote, full cost breakdown, NRM, Bill of Quantities, Gantt chart, management reports and schedules.
Billed as a ‘better way of working’ users can benefit from the practical aspects of BIM built into the software; a more disciplined way of working, the sharing of information and in turn, improved productivity and profitability.
Joanna Mulgrew Operations Director at Integro said: “BIM is suitable for all size of projects. The number of people on project or size of project budget doesn’t define BIM. Nor square meterage a determining factor for ‘doing BIM.’
“It’s about a work process; a coordinated, effective, holistic approach for project completion”
Small businesses can affect a change on the housing shortage
Jo hopes BuildingWorks will help boost the SME construction sector, enabling businesses to tackle the national housing shortage, and compete for contracts arising from Government projects requiring BIM.
Furthermore, she added: “BuildingWorks will help builders fulfil their potential. The industry progress ensures business stay on top and adapt to the changes as they go.”
Moreover, BuildingWorks is currently available from £24 per user per month per module based on a 24-month pre-payment subscription.
