Convert drawings to 3D takeoff models that generate element specific quantities instantly, to SMM7 or NRM2.

Takeoff whole buildings in less time while not worrying about deductions or measurement rules, they are built in.

Taking off columns our software is as easy as selecting a single outline on the plan


Visualise your quantities


Don’t get lost keeping track of hundreds of measurments. Convert your plans to 3D quickly with Cubicost TAS and let the materials do the talking.

Material appropriate measurements save countless hours for our users. For instance, a concrete wall gives length, heights, volumes, areas, formwork areas and rebar weights.

Beyond BIM Ready

Other software takes the limited and basic quantities built into the model.

 Using Cubicost each model is imported and given hundreds of material specific measures each with deductions and measurement rules being applied.

Increase the detail given such as room specifications with items like finishes, skirting, column cladding and ceiling grids applied with a single click to a room.


Case Study

NHS Oaks Park Medical Centre

The works comprise demolishing an existing Victorian building with the existing stonework detailing and motifs being retained and incorporated within the new fade, followed by the construction of a 3 storey steel frame, composite slabs, SFS infill frame and traditional brick and stone work building. The internal fit-out comprises specialist treatment and consulting rooms, admin areas and a large open plan waiting area with feature roof light. The scheme must achieve BREEAM Healthcare excellent rating and comply with NHS Technical Standards.
