ConEst Software Systems — ConEst Software Systems and GTP Services, LLC have come together to announce their new plug-in, GTP-IntelliBid. Both companies understand the impact technology is having in the construction industry and how important it is in delivering automated workflows to their customers. This new plug-in integrates 3D Revit designs with detailed construction costs directly with ConEst’s IntelliBid estimating software. “3D construction models can now easily be compared to estimated budgets”, says Ed Coffin, Chief Technology Advisor for ConEst. “If construction designs are over budget, contractors can make adjustments to the model prior to construction rather than wasting valuable time and money on the jobsite”. Coffin goes on to say ” This exciting new link will make the workflow more consistent providing better control of a contractor’s projects, profits and growth.”
Design build project teams requiring engineering, estimating and 3D modeling can now be a one-person operation. The GTP-IntelliBid plug-in further evolves BIM for electrical contractors by detailing bills of material and labor hours for any installation including prefabrication spooling and change order management, providing an effective and efficient solution between pre-construction and construction. Todd Liebbe, President and CEO of GTP Services, says “We call our industry partners the best of brands. By collaborating with the industry leaders in their respective markets, we are better equipped to provide innovative solutions to the overall construction workflow”.
