With the combined power of Lite, Plus, and Pro, IntelliBid Design Build
comes loaded with features for contractors to estimate in the design build arena with confidence. From lighting calculations and electrical formulas to multi-user support, Design Build™
delivers software solutions that let your estimators tackle any size and type of electrical and structured cabling project with confidence and proven superior performance.
ConEst Software Systems is the only construction software solution provider to address the need for estimating and lighting design software for electrical contractors. Design Build™ incorporates the same built-in Smart System™ technology found in each level of IntelliBid but adds the ability to calculate lighting requirements and electrical formulas including load, motor, voltage drop, service and feeder calculations and more. Tackle your design build projects and electrical calculations with confidence using IntelliBid Design Build!
IntelliBid Design Build gives you complete onscreen electrical estimating & design power right at your fingertips!
ConEst's Electrical Formulas software is bundled with IntelliBid Design Build for complete lighting calculations and accurate material costs. Calculate series segment voltage drops, NEC Article 220 Services and Feeders, fault current, load calculations, conduit, box, wireway fill and more! Current NEC tables in the software ensure that your calculations are precise. Use the Zonal Cavity Lighting feature in ConEst Electrical Formulas to calculate lighting levels and lamp types based on room size, ceiling height and wall color.
No need to calculate then estimate – with ConEst Electrical Formulas and IntelliBid Design Build estimating software, you complete the task in one easy step!
“I’ll never need to open the code book again…I love it (ConEst Electrical Formulas)!”
IntelliBid Design Build integrates seamlessly with SureCount™ Symbol Recognition Software for onscreen takeoff. SureCount reads digital drawings in common file types including .pdf, .gif, .tif, .jpg, .bmp and .cpc formats. SureCount counts symbols and lets the user measure point-to-point distances to perform takeoff directly onscreen. This significantly increases your takeoff speed and accuracy and virtually eliminates the time-consuming, manual task of counting and measuring materials from paper drawings.
Integration with SureCount for Onscreen Takeoff
SureCount organizes the material counts & measurements into separate data groups. An exclusive and seamless integration between IntelliBid and SureCount then pulls that data directly into IntelliBid's takeoff screen, instantly extending the material cost and labor associated with the quantities.
Digital takeoff with SureCount combined with IntelliBid gives estimators the latest technology tools for generating precise, cost-effective and labor-efficient job estimates with greater speed and accuracy.
