AMT+C5D Reports & Estimating

AMT+C5D comes with over 50 cost and quantity reports all setup and ready to be used for reporting into the C5D Estimate Template.

This special Macro-Enabled Excel file allows you to refresh ARCHICAD reports directly onto working sheets. Update a single cost report, or update all of them at once.

This estimate structure helps ARCHICAD users organize their projects into typical trades of construction, all centered around the USA standard CSI Masterformat classification systems.

Breaking down the reports into logical packages makes it easy for users to understand, and separate out costs into line items making up a summary workflow.

Estimate Across Design Phases

The C5D Estimate Template allows you to create early target budgets utilizing GSF Zones, and then later compare model based quantity takeoffs and detailed cost estimates.

This flexibility allows users to transition costs from early projections, to known details once determined and modeled correctly for takeoffs.


AMT+C5D International Version is available for ARCHICAD Users around the world who work in Metric Units. The main difference between the USA Version, and INT Version, is the LEGENDS file. This file contains several additional standards for wall and floor assemblies, commonly used around the world.
