Richardson Construction Estimating Standards

Leverage the industry-standard process database to improve estimate accuracy

richardson logoThe Richardson database is one of the most comprehensive and accurate estimating databases for the process industry and is applicable for Class 3 to Class 4 estimates. Hard Dollar has teamed with the developers of the Richardson database, Aspen Technology, to provide customers with seamless connectivity between our systems. Chemical plants, manufacturing facilities, solid processing, and water treatment plants can all benefit from the systematic takeoff and change order procedure that can be used to quickly create accurate estimates.

Instead of simply providing line items, HD Solutions allows estimators to use database resource entries (equipment, material, subcontractor, and labor rates) to create amended line items or even entire assemblies over the database. Installation man hours and material costs are also provided – estimators can generate detailed equipment lists along with aggregated man hours and materials required for installation. The Richardson database contains detailed information covering site work, concrete, masonry, structural steel, carpentry, architectural features, specialties, mechanical, and electrical and process equipment, and over 400 carbon steel and stainless steel piping assemblies.

HD Solutions can be connected with an existing Richardson database implementation, or it can be provided by Hard Dollar as part of an overall solution.
