Allows for hidden expenses
As well as properly accounting for the physical build costs, it's vital to allow for the hidden expenses. The legal fees, site surveys and stamp duty (if new build) not to mention local authority charges, insurance, site accommodation and security. These ALL have to be paid for from somewhere so you MUST include them in your budget in addition to the actual construction costs and of course, EstimatorXpress runs you through all of these.
It won't overlook anything...
It won't make errors in overlooking VAT, wastage, critical costs and/or profit. It will even calculate the wear and tear of your shovel. These are all things that will eat into your project profits profitability.
And even helps you take account of FUTURE price increases…
And for larger projects with a longer build program, use the inflation tool to set inflation over the project to ensure that your costs take account of rising costs over to time – so you quote the right cost at the start to take account of inflation and make the money you expect at the end of the project!
