Detailed Estimate

Now you can create Detailed Builders Estimates in any order and presentation (Builders Quants, SMM7, Element, Phase, Trade Package, Cook Your Own) you want with the same flexible tools that Vector has become renowned.

  1. Proforma complete projects as a starting point for similar new projects
  2. Copy items from Vector’s Detailed Cost Libraries using the quick and intuitive Windows Explorer style Library Navigator: Vector is supplied with quality Major Works and a Minor Works Alterations and Repairs Libraries with thousands of items which are fully resourced with full Labour, Material, Plant and Subcontract detail.
  3. Rapidly build your estimate by copying parts of previous estimates.

Items copied from other projects will be automatically updated and adjusted for any resource price changes that have been made in the destination project.
  4. Duplicate items into different elements using Copy and Paste where each copy points back to the same unique build-up, or if you want to add a number of similar but not identical items use Copy and Clone and then adjust the item separate build-ups to reflect job requirements.
