Automated Take-Off Software used on Yeadon Extra Care Housing Project – 11/03/16

As part of our continued development of BIM competency, Henry Boot Construction have been trialling a selection of software applications designed to take-off quantities from a 3D structural model.

Using traditional manual techniques, Project Quantity Surveyor, Terry Jordan has carried out a re-measure of the structural concrete works of our Yeadon Extra Care Housing Scheme. This task has been repeated using software from Cost X and Navisworks with the aim of helping us determine our software investment plans for the future.

“As an essential part of our future investment in BIM technologies, we need to be satisfied that any long term investment in 3D take-off capability is going to deliver value for money.  Both the Cost X and Navisworks products can produce very accurate quantities very quickly and the trial at Yeadon has been an essential part of our decision making process.”
