Bidding & Cost Estimation

Minimize bidding and estimating risk.

Minimize estimating risk and develop bids faster through improved consistency and accuracy with an integrated model-based estimating system.

Model-Based Estimating for Speed

By populating estimates with conceptual design information, start estimates earlier in the design process allowing more time for estimate optimization. The volumetric model also contains base cost data that is updated yearly, thus eliminating the time needed to develop a factor-based estimate.

Agility With Reuse and Models That Scale

Volumetric modeling is at the heart of the model-based system, allowing changes in size and scope to cascade automatically, eliminating the need to refactor estimates. Reuse and scale designs with design modules that leverage the economic and time benefits of modular facility construction.

Templates and Reporting for Transparency

Have or give complete estimate visibility through shared templates and reporting. Reduce project CAPEX through aligned knowledge and visibility of the components of the estimate that drive costs.
