Our vision is to reduce the time spent for costing, LCC estimation and carbon-footprint estimation, so much that it becomes possible to perform these tasks in all the stages of a project.
Result? Better decisions and better projects.
Common to all use cases is that you can do the first calculation with fairly little effort, and with high accuracy. Then you can continously improve the estimate as the project developes.
How? By the combination of 65 building templates for project types according to prevailing standards and the construction industry's most recognized database as used in the Calcus method.

A systematic approach to early stage cost estimation
A good cost estimate is a perfect analysing model for additional purposes such as the LCC-module with expected lifespan, annual costs and maintenance activities for all construction parts including all cost types such as preliminaries, insurance, fees, etc.
Switch to the carbon-footprint mode and you will see the project's carbon footprint. Optimize emissions and see the impact on costs and LCC. You can also study the weight of all structures and the entire building.
Ready to plan contract strategy? Then you need to reorganise the cost estimate on trades, find out the size of the various contracts and design your strategy.
A good cost estimate also have an important "rest value". It gives you up to 2/3 of the complete building specification items with applicable standard codes, units, quantities, and text in our specification software. The cost estimate also give you a pre-calculation plan for further analysis, ready for resource calculations and production.
