HD Estimating

Develop Internal and External Work Packages from Pay Items

Contractors have the ability to receive pay items from the owner, maintaining the integrity of owner’s structure while defining an internal contractors’ work breakdown structure related to how the project will actually be built.

Work packages and cost breakdown structures are separated from an owner’s pay item list, allowing the owner to receive reports and pricing exactly as requested, while maintaining a separate structure for the contractor.

Create Markups by Cost or Percent

Develop billing rates from quote resources, applying markups across one or more items to expedite the markup of cost items by rates or percentage of cost.

Calculate Profit and Overhead Distribution

Gain flexibility in spreading markup and overhead. Spread profit and overhead proportionately over all estimate items with a single step. Select lower-risk, higher-profit areas to assign additional profit spread. Manage overrun and under-run items with auto-pricing to spread profit on unit rate quantities.
