Don't be a slave to your desktop. CostMiner runs completely in your browser and stores your files securely in the cloud, so there's no need to install anything or send files back and forth. Never again will you need to worry about working on the wrong file, or losing time just because you’re on the wrong computer.
Work on the same file as anyone else, at the same time. Share just the files you want to, to whoever needs to see them, with just the access levels they’ll need. Clients. Team Members. Contractors. It’s teamwork, as it’s meant to be.
With the native takeoff tool and expression calculator, you can do all of your measurements and calculations in one place. No need to grab your calculator or switch to excel, and no need to pay for a third-party takeoff or measurement tool. CostMiner does it all.
Quantify and price items at the same time. The panels for takeoff and estimating are side-by-side on the same screen, so you can complete a cost estimate for your construction project quickly without wasting time on switching between different programs and windows.
There is no need to take off the same thing more than once to find its area, perimeter and volume. A single room outline and a single set of openings will produce floor, ceiling and wall areas and skirtings and cornice lengths.
Takeoff multiple dimensions
You can takeoff multiple dimensions from different drawings for the same item. In this example, the section area of the edge beam is multiplied by the length of the beam from another drawing to arrive on its volume.
With the Count function, you can mark objects on a plan, such as lights, sinks or pieces of furniture, as you count them to make sure that you have not missed any. The result will give you the quantity for a line item in the estimate.
Calculate the cost and mark-up of your project with CostMiner's job templates, composite rates and integrated onscreen take-off.
Job templates in CostMiner make estimating a typical construction project easy. All you need to do is fill-in or take-off the parameter values for a particular job, and CostMiner will prepare an estimate and a quote for the customer. Learn more.
Rates can be combined into a Composite Rate. A Composite Rate can include both simple and composite rates, and the number of levels is unlimited. When you change one of the rates, all composite rates that depend on it are recalculated automatically.
Recording completion status
Like many other things in CostMiner, progress reporting is integrated into the estimate. You enter the progress in the estimate sheet itself - there are columns for the previous claim as a reference point and the progress claimed from the beginning of the project and from the last claim.
Issuing Progress Claims
Once the data for the completed stage of the construction project has been entered, the system generates the progress claim certificate.
You can also define a retention rate for each job.
