Construction project estimate overview

Every estimate begins with a takeoff, which involves extracting detailed information from the project blueprint. Buildern simplifies this task by allowing you to analyze the plans and estimate the required materials for every aspect of the project, including items such as lumber, nails, screws, cement board, wiring, plumbing, and more.

It ensures that every material needed for the construction is accounted for, including a reasonable overage to mitigate unforeseen circumstances.

Special Feature for Third-Party Software Users

Here from another software? 

If you're already using popular construction software such as Buildertrend, Buildxact, Planswift, Bluebeam, or have estimates in an Excel/CSV file format, Buildern offers a special feature that allows you to import estimates directly into your Buildern account seamlessly.

Import construction estimate from other software

By offering these import capabilities, Buildern acknowledges the importance of data interoperability and enables you to leverage your existing estimates and data seamlessly. This integration streamlines your workflow, avoids duplicate data entry, and enhances the overall efficiency and accuracy of your construction estimating and project management processes.
