Buildsoft’s Cubit is a specialised estimating system with flexible functionality that allows you to estimate the way you want.

It’s the only application that seamlessly integrates takeoff with estimating for an all-in-one solution leading to a more ‘natural’ estimating process.  Trace directly over your imported plans, simple or complex quantity takeoffs are performed quickly and accurately.  See elements of your takeoff from any angle in 3D, and use this as a cross-referencing tool to make sure you don’t miss taking off any items, or to check all your openings.

Use template price lists and jobs as the source for new estimates.  Collect pricing information and save them as template price lists (or even import supplier price lists) to control how your company prices jobs, ensuring accuracy and maximising profitability.

Create template jobs that collate all your common trades and items, making it easier to start your next estimate, time and time again.  Any updates you make to your template price lists and jobs can be pushed into existing estimates so you’re working with the most up to date information.

Split the job across different stages and budgets, and export more detailed estimates into other workflows, like our Subcontractor Comparison Program, Microsoft Excel, and other third-party applications.

Easily view and edit plan changes - Save countless hours estimating.

Revisions to plans are overlaid on an existing plan you’ve already taken off.

Within Cubit, you have the ability to generate and print a range of professional reports including trade, markup, rate, takeoff, and Bills of Quantities.  Customisable reporting allows you to quickly hide and show various items, making it easy to share different elements of your estimate with a range of people.  All reports can be exported in a range of common formats
