Bill Of Quantities

As a Builder would you like a complete "Bill of Quantities" for your new home or extension ? A "Bill of Quantities" that lists all the materials and subcontractors and Quantities of each item with a price. The "Home Building Estimator" will give you the Builder exactly this. With the input of some basic job measurements such as area, perimeter, wall hieght and a window & door schedule the "Home Building Estimator" will automatically give you the quantities down to the last piece of timber and the last nail and screw. If you the Builder can turn on a computor than you can run this programme. With the input of Bathroom sizes you will have tile, glue, grout and cement quantities. Brick quantities (with cement, sand, scaffold, ties etc) are automatically calculated. Internal Fixout quantities (with nails, screws, glue, hinges, door furniture etc) are automatically calculated. Eaves Linings quantities (with nails, joining strips, trims etc) are automatically calculated. Bathroom, Laundry & Kitchen quantities (with floor wastes, accessories etc) are automatically calculated. Electrical quantities (with light fittings etc) are automatically calculated. For your  project every quantity you need to build the house will be calculated by the "Home Building Estimator". Prior to retirement I have used the "Home Building Estimator" to build new homes and extensions with great success over the past 25 years. In fact the programme has been constantly developed since the advent of Personal Computors and the first Excel spreadsheet. In its current format the programme is very accurate in it calculations of the entire list of items and trades required to build a new home or extension. The "Home Building Estimator" will give you the tools that most professional home Builders today use to run their own businesses. I know from my experience over the last 25 years how much time and money this programme can save the Builder. There are 16 pages filled with quantities just like the one pictured after the input of your project details.

 

Purchase Orders

You have entered the basic job measurements together with a door and window schedule and you are automatically given a complete Bill Of Quantities. The Home Estimator now takes this Bill of Quantities and automatically generates Purchase Orders that are specific to your Bill of Quantities. There will be upto 90 Purchase Orders. Each Purchase Order will itemise the scope of the work or goods to be supplied with individual prices and a total price. Every trade or supplier has there own specific Purchase Order for each part of the project that relates to them. Imagine, No more disputes about misunderstood inclusions or exclusions be it by type, quality or quantity with your suppliers or trades because the goods or labour ordered are in black and white on paper. All you have to do is send the Purchase Orders to the printer by Left Clicking the automatic Print Button for each Order. You can edit them as you wish but this would not usually be necessary. Each Purchase Order will automatically refer to a Subcontractor/Suppier Database that wil individually address each Purchase Order to your preferredTradesman or Supplier. All this happens automatically with no input needed from you.

 

Written Quote

You have entered the basic job measurements together with a door and window schedule and you are automatically given a complete Bill Of Quantities. The Home Estimator now takes this Bill of Quantities and automatically generates a Written Quote that is specific to your Bill of Quantities. The Quote will itemise all items listed in the Bill in a text format that can form a part of your Building contract with your client. Imagine, No more disputes about misunderstood inclusions or exclusions be it by type, quality or quantity because the entire project is in easy to understand text format and this can form an addendum to the contract. The Written Quote is at least 20 pages in length and all you have to do is send it to the printer. You can edit it as you wish but this would not usually be necessary. This can save you $1000's of dollars and keep your project as stress free as possible. Information is the key to a smooth and stress free project and this feature of our product will give you and your client all the information required to smoothly complete your project without unnecessary disputes. All this happens automatically with no input needed from you.

 

Project Manager

Our Project Manager will enable you to run your project to your selected timetable. Automatic call up notices for trades and material deliveries helps to ensure that trades and materials will arrive as scheduled and not cause delays to your project. Using our Project Manager you will run your project pro-actively rather than re-actively which means you will always be on top and ahead of events that may cause delays. Daily reminders will cause you to pre-order all materials and trades and further into your project reminders will cause you to check the trades amd materials both prior to and on the day of delivery for each and every trade and materials delivery. 
Prior to retirement as a Builder and Building Supervisor this simple Project management tool has enabled me to run the construction of upto 50 homes at a time and still be one step ahead of the game. magine how much stress you can avoid 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. The time you spend running your project will be dramatically reduced so that it will not overtake and dominate your life in terms of both time and stress. When a tradesman or materials supplier wants to know when they can be on your  project you will be able to tell them when they need to both start and finish to allow all other trades and materials to arrive uninterrupted. Your project will flow as a professional builder or supervisor would expect it to. You will be able to flag scheduling conflicts, modify project schedules, schedule trades and materials deliveries, print project schedules and track site inspections prior to payments to trades. This simple tool will enable the co-ordination of all facets of your project from the Planning stage to Completion. You will save both time and money and enjoy the building process as only a well co-ordinated project will allow you to.
Project Manager Integrates with our Estimator software to create a job schedule from the project estimate, using pre-defined sequences and durations of trades and materials deliveries. Project Manager also operates as a stand alone Project Management tool without our Estimator software. You may edit the building schedule on your computor or as a printout to be checked off manually or a combination of both methods.
