PlusSpec for Estimating & Construction - PlusSpec

Why PlusSpec?

Estimates should be more than just numbers. If an estimate is a ‘virtual build’, you will make less mistakes on site (you’ve already built it once).

FIND ERRORS

See complex plan errors that aren’t easy to find in a 2D plan, before you get to site.

BUILD VIRTUALLY, END ERROR

  • Import a plan (PDF, DWG, etc) and start tracing.
  • Work the way you think, by virtually building. Because you can see everything that you have specified, you won’t forget anything.
  • One of the biggest cost savers  is that you can see errors in engineering plans VS architectural plans before they happen on site.

PLAN THE SITE

  • Plan the site, and identify risks and hazards (and assign cost).
  • Use the 3D model on site: Explain details to your trades; Create RFI’s; Reduce the amount of physical plans, etc.
  • Make suggestions for better build outcomes.

MORE THAN JUST A QUOTE

  • Your estimate creates a 3D model. This is the ultimate quote conversion tool. Show your clients what they are getting for their money.
  • The Estimate/3D model created has value, and will help you win the job. Many even charge for this model (paid to quote).
  • Visually explain potential cost overruns and make changes whilst updating the overall cost.

FLEXIBLE REPORTING

  • Itemised segregated takeoff’s are broken down into categories.
  • Associate a price per unit for material and a price per unit for labour.
  • Assign a cost to anything and save it for next time.
  • Export Quantities from PlusSpec instantly for use in your financial software (Excel or CSV formats).

GENERAL

  • Upsell to clients
  • Have an advantage over other builders
  • Your quote is connected to the 3D model/plan, so if you make a change, your Takeoff is updated automatically.

Draw with actual building products

Intelligent, 3D parametric tools that allow you to design faster and smarter, and communicate in a way that everyone understands.

Import PDFs/Plans

Introducing the most powerful PDF importer for both PC and Mac.

Import the plans from your Architect/Designer with ease and trace over them to bring your Estimate to life with 3D.

WALLS

You don’t just draw lines or shapes with PlusSpec. With PlusSpec, you draw with Virtual Building tools.

Just select or build the wall that you want to use from the menu, and BAM! Everything will be drawn for you – including structure.

Our wall tool is parametric, which means that modifications are a breeze!

INTERACTIVE DESIGN

Use the PlusSpec Push/Pull Tool to move your walls with the speed of lightning.

Design iterations or changes have never been this easy. Walls are connected, so if you move one wall, the others update with it.

Automatically generate roofs and floors from walls and save yourself bucketloads of time (not to mention, reducing error)!

WINDOWS & DOORS

Add windows and doors to a wall with the click of a button.

PlusSpec windows and doors are actually cut into the wall & automatically update the wall structure.

If you delete a window or door, the cut in the wall is removed also. And, if you move a wall, all of the doors & windows move with it.

Create any kind of window and door, including curtain walls!

 

ROOFS

Drawing roofs are hard. PlusSpec makes them a piece of cake.

Draw Pitched roofs, Shed/Skillion Roofs or Flat Roofs in a matter of seconds.

Our Roof tool is parametric, which means that modifications are a breeze.

This tool will save you hours!

SLABS, JOISTS & DECKING

Empty lines and empty shapes that represent structure lead to design error.

With the PlusSpec Floor tool, you will be able to accurately build complex floor types, and get it right.

Our Floor tool is parametric, which means that modifications are a breeze!
