Free ARCHICAD Training Webinar:

How to Produce Quantity Take-offs and Cost Estimates

When set up properly, ARCHICAD's BIM data allows you to refine early conceptual designs using target budgeting AND give  you detailed model-based quantity take-offs and cost estimates.  


In this free 90 minute training, you'll learn key concepts, principles and tips and tricks behind model based estimating so you can develop your own strategies.


See how ARCHICAD and Excel can work together to deliver a powerful solution that is user friendly, fun and fast to implement.


In the webinar we’ll explore important concepts, including:

  • Why quantities and cost estimating are important
  • Who can benefit from a model-based estimating workflow
  • What BIM data is essential for driving the process
  • How to manipulate data for quickly getting results

You will learn:

  • Best practices for setting up an estimate, so you can organize your inputs and outputs.
  • Different levels of detail, so you can extract the information you need, when you need it
  • How to create and format quantity/cost reports, to help perform QA/QC on your models
  • How to exchange BIM data with Excel, so you can quickly update or calculate cost totals
  • How to develop custom Expression-based Properties, so you can automate your calculations directly within ARCHICAD

Watch the recording of this free training and discover how you can easily set up ARCHICAD for quantity take-offs and cost estimates...

Develop a 5-Minute "Target Based Estimate" by entering the gross area of your project, then for each line item plug in a gross unit cost value.

Watch as the totals and graphics automatically adjust to your inputs. Verify your total allowable hard costs, as well as soft costs typically added as below the line percentages.

This tool can helps you see the big picture of estimating and bottom line totals, while spreading details over each trade of construction.

ARC5D

The New ARCHICAD
Estimating Solution

If you’ve ever wanted to get detailed quantity takeoffs and estimates from your ARCHICAD models, ARC5D can make this goal a reality.

Concrete elements isolated, showing quantity and cost reporting

ARC5D is the first of its kind, all inclusive estimating solution for ARCHICAD that includes training, templates, and coaching program to help users get the most out of their BIM workflow.


ARC5D makes it easy to set up and derive quantity takeoffs, and use those takeoffs to build cost estimates from early budgets to detailed cost analysis over the project lifecycle.


For more information and to sign up for the ARC5D program please visit archicadestimating.com/solution.


The Quantity and Cost Estimating Course launches August 14, however users who sign up now get early access to valuable tools, resources and templates files.

The Creators of ARC5D

Eric Bobrow

John Hallgarth

ARC5D is based on the ground-breaking development work by John Hallgarth, founder of ContraBIM, and the Best Practices methodology of MasterTemplate created by internationally recognized ARCHICAD educator Eric Bobrow.


ARC5D is the result of these two outstanding and complimentary workflows, combined into a practical, user friendly, flexible yet comprehensive approach to model-based estimating.


This collaboration is targeted for those who have dreamed of achieving 5D model-based estimating, but have yet to overcome the challenges of setting up their own system.
