While global CEOs had equipped themselves for force majeure calamities as well as natural disasters and were ready with their business continuity plans, no one was ever prepared for a COVID-19 situation that could lockdown 150 countries at once and not allow the workforce to reach their offices! The future business contingency plans will, therefore, focus on working from home.
Our teams are holding fort and working from the safety of their home, ready to help customers as always! Read more
Partner with FWS and receive accurate BIM quantity estimation to speed up your bidding phase and increase your ROI at prices starting from as low as $16/hour
Are you looking to efficiently plan finances at different phases of construction and increase the predictability of completing your project within budget and on time? Are you looking for expertise related to bulk checking off items, adjustments/additions, and identification of missing items to ensure you get detailed cost estimations and accurate quantity take-offs? If so, we can help.
Flatworld Solutions (FWS) is a leading BIM quantity estimation service provider to clients across the world. Our experience with 5D BIM modeling allows us to deliver cost estimations for an entire range of construction projects, including retrofit and renovation projects. Our estimations result in a quicker overall cost assessment for the entire project. All the models we build are based on actual construction practices and, thus, can be used to generate highly-precise Bill of Quantities (BOQs) in custom formats by leveraging the information contained in each component of the model.
Our BIM Quantity Estimation & Take-off Services
As a top provider of BIM quantity take-off services, our quantity estimations are free of human errors that usually creep in during manual calculations. Our customized take-offs include floor-wise finishes and pour-wise quantities, among others, and these can significantly enhance traditional activities like cost reconciliation and procurement.
Our BIM models incorporate all the disciplines and, thus, can generate quantities for all the Structural, Architectural, and MEP components. Changes to the quantities and their costs get dynamically updated in the budget sheets which always remain in sync with the BIM model.
Our BIM quantity estimation services include -
Bill of Quantities Generation Services
Our BIM can be used to generate reliable and accurate cost estimates and quantity take-offs throughout the lifecycle of your project. Models generated through BIM remove the potential inaccuracies and human errors that inevitably result when performed manually. Moreover, BIM ensures that the information is always consistent with the design.
Estimation of quantities through BIM also helps the different stakeholders visualize the cost implications of any changes they are proposing at all stages of the construction process, helping them keep budget overruns under check.
Bar Bending Schedule Services
We create precise Bar Bending schedules for all structural components to enable improved Bar Bending and laying procedure. The BIM model we create can also be used for structural analysis and ultimately, to obtain the exact amount and Engine of reinforcements of all concrete structures. Our Bar Bending schedules are dynamically-linked with 3D rebar models, which can also be used to enable greater visualization by contractors.
Cost Analysis Report Services
After the quantity estimation is done, we act as cost consultants using BIM-enabled workflows. We assist project owners and contractors through all the different stages of their projects to make better-informed decisions about budgets and project costs. We can seamlessly integrate our information-rich 3D models with Excel sheets or other databases to form a type of back-end for your project on which you can depend.
This database that is rich in information can then be used to generate quantities in any format such as floor wise, material-wise, or component-wise, among others. Stakeholders can make changes to the database at any point in time and these changes can be incorporated into the database at any time without any hassles and be reflected across all the dynamically-linked resources.
We also provide easy-to-understand dashboards to visualize things like building models and cost reports to enable a productive experience for the end-user.
Bill of Material Services
We create highly-accurate and complex 3D models of complex steel structures where all the connections and structural elements down to the smallest nuts, welds, and bolts are modeled. With these 3D models, highly-precise bills of materials (BOMs) can be generated and used to enable seamless fabrication workflows and for procurement purposes.
In addition, since we model all disciplines in a single model, comprehensive and detailed quantity schedules of all the components, including fittings, ducts, pipes, equipment, accessories, hangers, and cable trays, can be obtained, which are dynamically linked to the central BIM model.
Dynamic Quantity Estimation Services
Quantity estimation has long been done manually. However, with the advent of BIM, the entire procurement and estimation process has become highly detailed and accurate. We have developed an add-in to Autodesk Revit which exports details from the BIM model into the Excel sheet. In addition, the details in the Excel sheet are dynamically linked to the BIM model, which ensures that any changes made in the model are instantly reflected in the Excel sheet, reducing errors and reworks significantly.
Real-Time Cost Planning
We perform real-time cost planning and conceptual modeling to increase your efficiency and reduce errors.
Parametric and Dynamic Cost Attributing
We perform parametric and dynamic cost attributing so that any changes made to the model automatically reflect inappropriate changes in the bill of materials and the project cost estimate.
Our models are designed to be integrated with multiple components like scheduling, estimating, location-based quantities, quantity take-offs, costing, resources, and deriving labor costs and productivity rates.
BOM and BOQ Extraction
We provide intuitive and straight-forward BOM and BOQ extraction and integration with Excel and also provide ease of validation.
Precise BIM Quantity Take-off
Our construction schedules are integrated with precise phase-wise quantities and quantity take-offs.
