Making estimating software is the software that is used to resolve and manage the building construction issues like cost of construction, the type of material intended for construction, total budget and the time required to complete the construction project starting from zero up till its end. This software consists of multiple modules installed in it which allows at each and every step of the construction; from cost challenge to selection of material to cost management problems. It assists in collecting the clients’ requirements of the time to complete often the project, the cost involved and the quality and standard with the material to be used for construction.
This software manages the exact record for the bids made for a certain project, billing intention of the project, order status including accept, reject as well as update status. An important advantage of using this software is that all the very records are maintained on a computer system, thus removing the advantages of paperwork and the fault of duplication of data. It also helps in doing an estimate about the time and period required for the completion of a new construction project. This software generates project specification accounts of the cost estimates, transmittal, insurance of the project and as well produces contracts that are to be signed and accepted concerning clients, contractors and suppliers of the construction material.
This particular software also efficiently collects the complex structural details of the projects from the data provided to it. There are six to eight phases of using Building Construction Software which are:
1 . Conceptual Design phase
2 . Engineering phase
3. Showing Design phase
4. Fabrication phase
5. Construction level
6. Maintenance phase
The drawings and 3d models of the project are also generated by this software alone, thus eliminating the need of using different software. The Building Construction Program has opened new horizons for the builders, architects in addition to contractors to take advantage from the latest software technologies.
