Construction takeoff and estimating
Take the guesswork out of the equation

Creating more profitable bids and winning the project is every organization’s goal, but many estimators lack the right tools to achieve it. With construction cost estimating software powered by constructible-level data, takeoffs and estimates are more granular, accurate, and flexible.

Detailed, accurate estimates that win work
Bring a competitive advantage to your estimates

Standardize your estimating processes with the help of construction estimate software and construction takeoff software so you can win more work, and use less effort to do so. Estimating is a critical part of the project lifecycle—necessary to win the project, profit on change orders, and finalize costs at close out. Construction cost estimating software enables teams to create accurate estimates that take all critical factors into consideration.

Intelligent estimating for infrastructure projects

Accurate construction costs can be the deciding factor on whether or not your projects stay on budget and on schedule. Increase efficiency and accuracy in your estimates and quantity takeoffs with a solution that taps into your detailed model data, cost estimate analysis, planning work, and schedules.

Accurate quantity takeoffs

Identify all related costs to your project and detect conflict instantly. Speed up the bidding process with enhanced takeoff capabilities.

Create schedules and plans

Combine Gantt schedules, site plans, heights, earth mass handling, scales & histograms into one view to help keep your construction projects on track.

Detailed cost estimate analysis

Ensure all geological factors, mass handling and climate costs and values are incorporated into your estimations to create the most accurate overall bid.

A better way to estimate building projects

Automate quantity calculations. Standardize organizational processes. Communicate and update changes easily. Connect your takeoff and estimate data to schedules and sequencing. It’s all possible with Trimble’s MEP-specific and general contracting cost estimating and takeoff software.

All-in-one estimating subscription

Create comprehensive estimates from one subscription service, using connected takeoff and pricing applications with established workflows. Estimates are easily saved and produced within the cloud environment.

Detailed & accurate takeoffs

Produce spot-on estimates with connected graphical takeoff tools that automate the quantification process. Avoid duplicate or missed items and speed up your takeoff process with digital takeoff software.

MEP-specific solutions

Specialized software tailored for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing estimates. Trade-specific tools produce detailed estimates and standardize workflows to streamline the estimating process.

Leverage a connected workflow
Get the right insight at the right time for the right decision

Project delivery challenges happen, especially if your team can't access current information, no matter what task they are working on. That's why we're focused on connecting workflows across our portfolio. Check back often to see new integrations and how they can help you better manage your projects and understand them holistically.

MEP model to procurement

Extend the downstream value of your detailed model. Estimate materials and labor, compare pricing across suppliers, and send a digital purchase order directly to distributors, while keeping your ERP updated with accurate, up-to-date job cost data.

Civil bid to build

Reduce the need for manual data processing when preparing a payment application. Give your project managers visibility into a project's progress to support real-time planning. Financial teams will have complete and timely data.

Structural model to fabrication

Create confidence in estimation and procurement processes. Get transparency into subcontractor scheduling. Drive high-quality, reliable scheduling and status updates.
