Autodesk Fabrication ESTmep software helps mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) contractors win more work by creating more accurate, competitive bids, enabling a better understanding of the project costs for MEP building services systems throughout the detailing, fabrication, and installation workflow.
Win more work with more accurate bids:
- Use real-world, manufacturer-specific content and associated costs (such as equipment, material, wastage, labor, fabrication, installation, overheads, mark-ups) to more accurately understand bid breakdown.
- Help streamline the creation of more accurate, competitive bids by extending design-intent models (created using Autodesk Revit software, Autodesk Revit MEP software, or Autodesk AutoCAD MEP software) into Autodesk Fabrication ESTmep software.
- Use design-intent underlays (DWG, DWF, PDF, etc.) with design line drawing technology to more quickly takeoff competitive bids.
Monitor the bottom-line throughout detailing, fabrication, and installation:
- Base estimates and cost analysis on specific business needs with fully customizable databases and variables.
- Gain greater insight into estimated costs by integrating more seamlessly with Autodesk Fabrication CADmep software and Autodesk Fabrication CAMduct software.
- Document cost changes and monitor project iterations using variation tracking tools, improving traceability and accountability of project estimate increases or decreases.
Simplify workflows and provide benefits to clients:
- Perform value engineering tasks more efficiently, providing multiple cost estimates to clients based on a variety of needs and scenarios.
- Take advantage of the integrated databases and libraries of Autodesk Fabrication CADmep software and Autodesk Fabrication CAMduct software to help improve workflows and efficiencies between project stakeholders.
