The perfect balance between design & construction. Please Note: To qualify for our Edu Plan you must be undertaking a relevant course in the construction industry.
PlusSpec for SketchUp is the perfect balance between design and construction. You have the best of free-form 3D sketching and the best of parametric, Building Information Modeling and Virtual Design and Construction tools (PlusSpec).
Unlike any other software (which teaches you 2D documentation at best), PlusSpec will teach you structure, detailing, end-to-end project delivery, as well as feasibility (you’ll learn how much your projects cost to build).
With SketchUp, you can design the unimaginable. With PlusSpec, you will learn how to make them a reality. And the best part: PlusSpec automates 95% of the work. This means that you will be able to produce an amazing body of work, without having to do the all-nighters!
Becoming a professional in the construction industry shouldn’t force you to be out of pocket for investing in your own skills.
PlusSpec works in combination with structure, buildability and feasibility – and allows Building students/apprentices to better understand construction, as well as why different construction methodologies cost more money, and why some projects are more difficult to build than others. It also teaches students/apprentices to able to spot errors and oversight. There is no better way to learn how to quote/estimate than with PlusSpec.
Construction students around the globe choose PlusSpec not only for effortless bill of quantities, but also for the countless hours and energy it saves on projects.
SketchUp is the only CAD software that you can actually design with, and there is no better way to communicate your designs. PlusSpec allows you to do it faster and smarter than you ever thought possible – and to a higher LOD (you will learn structure and detailing as you design).
Products and materials are integral elements of interior design, and PlusSpec comes with an extensive library of branded products & generic options (as well as the best paint/color tool around). Even in small fit-outs, it’s easy to lose track of everything that you have specified. PlusSpec generates a take-off/specification of every product/item/material that you have used in your design – and will teach you how to understand and produce cost estimates.
