What is Building Works?

BuildingWorks is an affordable subscription-based CAD and estimating software platform designed for builders, developers, and designers in the construction industry. According to the vendor, the software seamlessly combines CAD design and estimating functionalities, allowing users to create building plans while simultaneously estimating project costs. This software caters specifically to small to medium-sized construction companies, including general builders, house builders, property developers, and designers. BuildingWorks aims to optimize project planning, cost estimation, and design visualization.

Key Features

Seamless Design and Estimation: BuildingWorks integrates CAD design and estimating functionalities, enabling users to draft building plans while estimating project costs. The software offers a library of intelligent practical BIM products with real materials and objects, providing users with immediate feedback on the impact of design and specification decisions on project cost and energy performance. The software also includes a Quantity Surveyor (QS) module for generating a comprehensive Bill of Quantities.

Win Profitable Jobs with 3D Models and Professional Quotes: General builders can use BuildingWorks to accurately cost their building projects and review specifications to achieve the desired cost/energy performance balance. The software enables users to create professional quotes and provides the flexibility to generate priced or unpriced Bills of Quantities for tendering purposes.

Draft Planning Application Drawings and Obtain Detailed Cost Estimates: BuildingWorks allows housebuilders to draft planning application drawings and obtain detailed cost estimates for their development projects. The software assists in complying with SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) and provides functionality for producing profit and cashflow reports. Users can also generate working drawings, Gantt charts, and schedules of labor, materials, and plant.

Produce Sketch Schemes and Impressive 3D Visualizations: Designers can leverage BuildingWorks to efficiently create sketch schemes, building plans, and impressive 3D visualizations compared to traditional CAD solutions. The software is suitable for planning applications and building regulations compliance. Designers can optimize their designs with instant cost and energy performance feedback and provide clients with detailed NRM (New Rules of Measurement) Bills of Quantities.

Draft Planning Application and Working Drawings for Property Development: Property developers can utilize BuildingWorks to create planning application and working drawings for their development projects. The software assists in cost estimation, reviewing specifications to achieve the desired cost/energy performance balance, and analyzing projected profit and cashflow. The NRM Bill of Quantities feature allows developers to track variables as the project progresses.

Quick and Easy Document Production: Quantity Surveyors can efficiently produce documents using BuildingWorks by extracting plans in the Design module, which automatically generates a comprehensive cost breakdown in the Estimate module. The software enables the easy generation of formal NRM Bills of Quantities, whether priced or unpriced, based on specific requirements.
