CostOS in Southern Africa

CostOS BIM Estimating makes full use of all the benefits you can get by using the 3D model of your project (building, civil, oil & gas, energy, aerospace, shipyard etc). Its embedded 3D viewer allows you to navigate easily through it and autoselect entities.

The quantity takeoff of your project (Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, HVAC, Electrical etc) can be massively accelerated and the accuracy you can achieve is unprecedented.

Create your Bill of Quantities directly on your 3D model and see how it is built up while your estimate progresses. Use both your local/server cost database and the online commercial databases (Means, Richardson, Spon’s, NODOC) to find cost data that match the selected entities and directly assign this data to your model.

The Cost Data is not just line items or percentages. The Data you assign includes all the resources (material, equipment, labor, subcontractor…
