A scalable costing tool to help with projects of all sizes

Bidcon allows you to define the way you want to work. Its flexible and dynamic templates and reports enable you to identify the most cost-effective solutions and revise estimates accordingly. It is also available with a BIM option which gives a true 5D environment for costing and estimating.

Why choose Bidcon?

Based on a powerful SQL database, Bidcon helps you improve efficiency in managing your bids and handing them over to the next stage.

  • Manage mark-up factors at both high and low levels to work towards a desired tender sum, whilst ensuring that the project provides the necessary revenue for the business
  • Manage information in a Common Data Environment, whether you are using a 3D IFC model or not
  • Use the built-in NRM framework and the user-definable ‘free code’ to add additional intelligence to your cost plan
