Commercial teams benefit from Cost X 06/12/16

Better Barnsley schemeBIM

The commercial teams within Henry Boot Construction are delivering the benefits of using our automatic take off software Cost X. By integrating the BIM software, we are ensuring that Henry Boot Construction can accommodate the volume of BIM tenders received, with a view to 'de-risking' the models and offering a more robust value engineering process during the pre-construction phase. The software will also allow Henry Boot Construction to quantify models for supply chain and aid the commercial teams on-site duties.

We are currently using the software on the new library project, part of phase 1 of the Better Barnsley redevelopment scheme. The new library will be housed inside a new community facility in the centre of Barnsley town centre. This project is being procured to BIM Level 2 and is a perfect oppertunity to understand how we can continue to drive efficiencies using BIM.

"The software allows us to expedite quantities and provide our Employer with cost appraisals of design options quickly and without affecting the delivery programme."
