Leveraging the power of graphical takeoff, material pricing and labor, Estimation MEP is an easy-to-use cloud estimating and takeoff software for estimating small MEP projects.
Key benefits of using Estimation MEP
- Adaptable Takeoff Methods
Start measuring and counting light fixtures, pumps, values, cable trays, air vents and more with Estimation MEP.
Easily perform graphical takeoff. Select a unit of measure for your scale then electronically count, and mark up PDF drawings and specifications directly and simultaneously fill in the takeoff sheet.
Alternatively, easily perform full screen takeoff using a manual method. Enter your bill of quantities and measurements directly into Estimation MEP.
Either way, the sleek, digital software quickly performs takeoff with the highest level of accuracy and saves you time.
- Takeoff Sheets
Estimation MEP emulates traditional paper takeoff sheets with full screen takeoff so you can work in an environment you are familiar with while leveraging the power of a user friendly, digital estimating software. Say goodbye to paper!
- LUCKINS Managed Library of 500,000+ Items
Estimation MEP comes pre-configured with access to over half a million items from LUCKINS, the UK’s largest catalogue of HVAC, Electrical and Plumbing material items. Ensure every estimate and procurement list you produce is an up-to-date manufacturing bill of materials (BOM) including item information and list prices.
The LUCKINS database ensures that material items include manufacturer list prices which allows you to price items instantaneously to quickly create accurate estimates to produce quotes for the materials required and order them.
Estimation MEP automatically consolidates the items from multiple takeoff sheets into a summary list. Then, you can make any additional changes, in this summarised view, to material pricing or labour hours. You can also export quoted items into Excel for easy, accurate quotes to save you time, or email a request for quote directly from Estimation MEP.
- Labour & Labour Factoring
Create detailed labour estimates with labour time and costs to increase the accuracy of your bids by utilising the labour factoring feature in Estimation MEP. Tailor your labour costs by applying a factor variable to reflect the efficiency of your labourers. Avoid costly errors by taking into account difficult on-site install situations by factoring the labour hours by drawing and work breakdown.
Manage labour and add cost items for prelims, overheads and subcontractors in your estimate. Effortlessly add tax, overheads and markups to calculate your final figure as accurately as possible.
- Work Breakdowns
It's valuable to organize your estimates in various ways. With Work Breakdowns you can categorise each takeoff with desired tags. This allows for increased flexibility when reviewing your estimates and filtering or grouping results.
