2D + 3D + Sage Estimating = 5D BIM

Posted by Sage Estimating on Sep 27, 2016 10:10:00 AM

We've all been waiting for an intuitive solution that complements VDC teams and estimators rather than forcing a process to fit technology. After the success of eTakeoff's Bridge and proving that a system can learn from mapping efforts between a digital plan and Sage Estimating, the promise of Bridge and Navisworks is holding true. It looks like Autodesk QTO users have something to cheer about.

Estimating Technology for Construction 2016 Conference

Posted by Nick Papadopoulos on Jun 7, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Last week I attended the Estimating Technology for Construction 2016 conference in San Francisco, CA. This was the inaugural event, so I had no prior experience for gauging the attendance and speaker quality.

New Technology to Tackle 5D BIM Challenges

Posted by Walter Davis on May 31, 2016 10:30:00 AM


Virtual design and construction (VDC) practices today extend into all phases of the building life cycle—from design, through estimating and construction management, and onto building maintenance and demolition.  That flow involves many individuals of different work disciplines—architect, engineer, estimator, project manager and more—each with their own requirements.

To address the needs of these different disciplines, software developers over the years have become experts in specific software applications. While this has given each discipline the deep functionality they need, it has also resulted in software silos. Now, more than ever, there is a need to share information between disciplines and break down those silos through VDC technology.

Time to Take 5D BIM to the Next Level

Posted by Walter Davis on May 25, 2016 9:30:06 AM


Building information modeling (BIM) offers many benefits to the AEC industry. In my last post, "Three reasons why estimators are adopting BIM", I pinpointed specifically how 5D BIM can be used by estimators to provide valuable cost saving strategies and greater project cost predictability.

Yet BIM, in many ways, is still in its infancy when it comes to estimating. Estimators operating within a BIM-based environment today particularly are running into challenges with take-off and specifications.

Three Reasons Why Estimators are Adopting BIM

Posted by Walter Davis on May 17, 2016 11:00:00 AM


Estimators in today’s fast-paced, small-margin world have their work cut out for them. Buildings are much more complex, while expectations are higher than ever to quickly deliver the best cost-saving strategies.

As a result, estimating teams are turning to new technology to help them address these challenges. One such technology is 5D model-based cost estimating (also referred to as 5D BIM).
