Optimize your takeoff workflow by developing and sharing a standardized set of takeoff tools with your team that provide a comprehensive summary for concrete volume of footings as slabs, in addition to linear footage and surface area of formwork.

Concrete

Electrical

Standardize your processes by applying industry-standard symbols to identify and count electrical items and fixtures, measure lengths of conduit and segmented runs of wiring—including rise and drop—and link your material takeoff quantities to Excel.

Electrical

HVAC

Streamline your takeoffs by developing a set of markup tools that help your team measure segmented lengths of ducting (including vertical rises and drops) and volume of air flow per room, and automatically scan a set of drawings for VAV devices, thermostats or equipment tags.

HVAC

Interior Finishes

Develop more accurate takeoffs by using scaled markups to measure segmented lengths of millwork and complex curved areas of flooring or wall coating surface area, and automatically scan a set of drawings to quickly apply symbols for window and door counts.
