A customisable costing tool for projects of all sizes
Bidcon allows you to choose how you work.
Its dynamic templates, libraries and reports enable you to identify the most cost-effective solutions and produce the most accurate estimates in the industry. It is fully BIM enabled and integrates fully with Powerproject – providing a true 5D environment for costing and estimating.
Based on a powerful SQL database, Bidcon puts you in control of your costs
with the most accurate estimation possible, enabling you to:
• Extract information instantly from a 3D model
• Import information from a wide range of sources
• Source powerful cost libraries
• Use templates – work with standard ones or easily create your own
• Customise data to suit your needs
• Manage sub-contractors easily
• Be confident of high levels of security
• Easily create complex recipes for the most accurate estimate available
• Combined with Powerproject BIM, Bidcon provides a tool kit for 5D planning
Bidcon BIM provides the functionality required to manage your costs via an IFC model.
• Extract: Create a cost plan from the federated BIM, compare revisions and review.
• Link with the model: Link the objects to an existing cost plan or use the automatically linked objects when performing a takeoff.
• Navigate: ‘Walk’ around or through the model and easily access the right information.
• True 5D BIM: Create a fully-resourced programme in Powerproject BIM by linking to rate build-ups associated with the cost plan.
