Having a digital model during the process of construction is valuable to the overall efficiency of your capital project. However, there are challenges that come with traditional digital models. Most digital models are created to develop construction drawings and are not created for extracting quantities and integrating with estimating software.

Therefore, design models don’t provide enough data to be used in takeoffs and don’t always provide the right data type of the utilized takeoff. The key data used for quantities is often missing from the design files, and taking quantities from the design requires a manual process that is in efficient. This challenge spans all industries for model based takeoff. You would think that for something as important as cost items are to a capital project You’d want them to be connected to your models, right?

Well, what if we told you there was a better way? InEight’s model based take off solution working tandem with an eight’s estimating solution was made for extracting quantities from a complete digital twin of your project. It normalizes and cleans up data for optimal estimating usage for generating take off quantities from the design models.

This eliminates the need for any of the manual processes of the past. That way contractors and owners can get their quantities integrated right inside their model, allowing for a fast, efficient and repeatable process. If you’d like to learn more about this and other InEight solutions, contact us. We’ll be happy to schedule a free demo.
