The new BuildingWorks integrated software platform sees cost and energy performance feedback appear on-screen simultaneously as you draw your conversion, extension or new build plan using its comprehensive BIM objects library from just £58/month + VAT.

Literally as you draw each part of the building, specifying from the fantastic on-board rates library what it’s built of, the software is generating a detailed cost breakdown. 


Massive up-to-date BIM Library

The BuildingWorks BIM object library has more than 15000 objects and 5000 rates that are all available in the UK and price checked regularly. Each object contains an image and valuable information including cost, size, thermal performance and COSHH. The software uses the data to automatically cost the project as you draw the plan.


Create your plan

Draft plans quickly with slick tools. Specify how it is built using the on-board library. Choose between different thermal efficiencies and costs. Easily produce sketch schemes, (planning permission and Building Control suitable) plans, elevations, 3D models and photo-realistic 3D visuals.

Cost your project

Now you can give a client a fully detailed cost breakdown, a comprehensive, professional ‘customer-friendly’ quote, or an NRM (SMM7 style/Bill of Quantities) tender document at the same time as the drawing. No importing or exporting files or inputting extra or duplicate information.

Instant cost as you draw

And there’s more looking ahead…

Health and Safety, Contracts, Project Management and Energy Performance are additional modules all in the pipeline. All will be operating on the same easy-to-use interface, and all integrated to speed up the process, make you more money in an effective, co-ordinated way.
