HOME ESTIMATOR SOFTWARE

  • Our Home Estimator Software is unlike any other products because it actually calculates the quantities of materials and labour for a new home or extension. An Owner Self Builder or Contractor does not need to understand all the calculations required to result in a full Bill Of Quantities that applies to his or her project because our programme makes all the calculations for you. Our programme allows for all the things that would otherwise be neglected and adds them to the Bill of Quantities.  Other Estimating products are simply Databases where you manually calculate the quantities and then match the quantities to a product or service in the database. These products typically lack the details available in our Bill of Quantities. You simply enter your project details and the Estimate is done.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

  • Prior to retirement as a Contractor and Building Supervisor the various Tools and Programmes that I used enabled me to run the construction of up to 50 homes at a time and still be one step ahead of the game. Imagine how much stress you can avoid as a Contractor or Owner Self Builder by being one or two steps ahead in the management of your project. Not only can you avoid the stress of running a Project but you will save money and time by running your Project pro-actively. There are a number of tools in our shop including the "Home Estimator " which will enable an accurate costing of your Owner Builder project and the "Project Manager" which will enable you to stick to this costing and to complete your Project in the time allowed.

 

  • The Contractor or Owner Self Builder can run their Project to the Day and the Dollar with our "Project Manager". An project that runs on time with materials and trades on site as required will save you $1000,s and months in building time. Bring your Contractor or Owner Self Builder Project to fruition both on time and within your budget. Weather you are a contractor or an Owner Self Builder if you can show the trades a schedule for your project they can be confident that you will be ready for them when you say and this will minimise or eliminate delays and cost over runs. If you can demonstrate that you job is organised and that you know what you want and most importantly when you want it you can demand the same price a professional contractor would recieve.

 

 

QUALITY CONTROL MANUAL

  • Quality Control for the Contractor or Owner Self Builder is about managing the building processes so that you are satisfied with the quality and consistency of the finished project. Quality Control is a set of procedures designed to ensure that quality standards and processes are adhered to, and that the final product meets or exceeds performance requirements. Quality Control covers activities including design, planning, materials supply, labour supply, installation and servicing as well as proper documentation. Quality Control assures the existence and effectiveness of procedures that attempt to make sure - in advance - that the expected levels of quality will be reached. The Quality Control Manual will help you to keep on top of these potential problem areas by using controls to monitor problem areas, and work immediately to reduce or eliminate them. Control generally includes sampling and testing product at random, measuring tolerances and correcting issues before they become widespread or worsen. During construction work, the pace of activities requires the Owner to coordinate and control Trade Contractors and Suppliers on a daily basis. Very quickly there arises a need to record what happens and who is responsible for correct or incorrect work. The Quality Control Manual will help you to keep on top of these potential problem areas.

  • The Quality Control Manual is designed to:

    1.       Provide routine and consistent checks to ensure material and labour quality and completeness
    2.       Identify and address errors and omissions
    3.       Document and record all Quality Control activities
    4.       Ensure a Quality Control focus throughout the project from pre-planning to completion.

 

    • All of these tools have been used by a retired Home Builder to sucessfully bring to completion hundreds of New Homes and Home Extensions over a period of 25 years.
