8 Tips for Successful
Construction Cost Estimating

Successful construction projects start with accurate estimating. The best estimating software gives you the data to analyze your risks and turn a profit. Here’s how InEight Estimate supports you from bid to project execution.

Top-down and Bottom-up Estimating

Work with a software that supports both conceptual and detailed estimating so you can transition from early-stage to detailed estimates.

Use Historical Benchmarking

Create more accurate estimates with a library of searchable historical data. Validate against actual costs, productivity rates and quantities.

Incorporate CPM Scheduling

Work with your schedule, not against it, thanks to integrated cost and scheduling functions. Get a time-phased view of costs, resources and cash flow.

Integrate with Project Controls

Reduce inefficiency and lost data by making estimates immediately available to field teams at a level of detail that makes sense.

Manage Change Orders

Don’t let scope changes eat away at your profit margin. Input changes into the working budget, and compare forecasts to include or exclude pending changes.

Earned Value Management

Integrate your estimating, field execution and earned value management systems. Make better plans and forecasts with a bigger picture of project progress.


Predict your costs with more accuracy, thanks to real-time forecasting data. Share information with relevant teams to identify issues and make instant adjustments.

Track Workflow

Keep your organization on the same page with a complete audit log. Invite team members to give feedback and view a history of changes to the estimate.
