The Right Tools for Builders

How good would it be to see most of your building problems before they happen?

PlusSpec will spot your problems that you may run into, to prepare you to take the right action…thus saving you time and money in the long run. This is the same methodology as ‘measure twice and cut once.’

PlusSpec is easy to learn! We have a full set of comprehensive tutorials, as well as training options so that you can get good fast. This ensures that you do not suffer from prolonged periods of unproductiveness.

Builders do not have to deliver refined masterpieces (although you can, if need be). The main aim is to get the essentials down as quickly and as efficiently as possible so that you can: communicate costs, understand complexities and highlight any planning errors or oversights.

It’s amazing how many problems can be noted and addressed without having to organize client meetings. Simply send the 3D model with the areas in question tagged with comments. All information is automatically added to the take-off sheet, which provides a documented solution to variations and payments.

More than Just a Quote

Using PlusSpec is like having a smart person beside you, guiding you as you go about quoting your project.

PlusSpec was designed by industry for industry, so it quickly makes sense.

If you draw a wall, products that make up that wall will be produced: studs, lining, bricks, insulation, etc. And as you draw, your takeoff and estimate are being automatically created for you.

When you Quote with PlusSpec, you are also creating a 3D model.  You will be able to use this model to pull projects apart and examine, edit or request information from architects/designers, clients, and engineers. You can suggest edits and visually explain where costs are incurred to everyone involved. BIM software residential construction is the answer.
