Open BIM Cost Estimator has been created to automatically estimate the execution cost of a construction project during its preliminary phases, in a simple and practical way, using a fast, efficient and precise design model, by taking into account the built surface, height of the building, and typological, construction, geographic and socioeconomic factors.
The Open BIM Cost Estimator user interface is divided into three tabs, which correspond to the preliminary phases of the project that are contemplated by the application:
- Phase I: Preliminary analysis
- Phase II: Draft project
- Phase III: Design project
