for :
1) A specific project, size and type.

2) To estimate their bid price for a project.

3) For purposes other than bidding.

4) For the distribution of labor
and for purchases of raw materials. Construction contractors usually prepare bids or tenders to compete for a contract award for a project. To prepare the bid, first a cost estimate is prepared to determine the costs and then establish the price(s).

This involves reviewing the project's plans and specifications to produce a take off or quantity survey, which is a listing all the materials and items of work required for a construction project by the construction documents. Together with prices for these components, the measured quantities are the basis for calculation of the direct cost. Indirect costs and profit are added to arrive at a total amount Estimators used columnar sheets of paper to organize the take off and the estimate itself into rows of items and columns containing the description, quantity and the pricing components. Some of these were similar to accounting ledger paper. They became known as green sheets or spreadsheets. With the advent of computers in business, estimators began using spreadsheet applications like VisiCalc, Lotus , and Microsoft Excel to duplicate the traditional tabular format, while automating redundant mathematical formulas The Advantages of Construction Estimation Software:
1) Can bid in short time.
2) Precise Calculation.
3) Easy takeoff from plans.
