As Jamie Whincup took the chequered flag at the ‘Coates Hire Newcastle 500 round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship’ on a super summer Sunday afternoon in November 2017 to claim a record 7th championship, the team at Gleeson Civil Engineering were quietly congratulating themselves on their part in making the event an amazing success.
Pricing a lot of similar jobs means a lot of repetitive pricing for Sydney-based Mack Civil Engineering, so they needed a database that they could rely on. In addition, as a relatively small, but fast-growing company, they needed to contain costs wherever possible. They have managed to achieve both of these objectives with the implementation of Benchmark Estimating Software.
Managing Director of BG Contracting, Jonas Paterson, admits that ten years ago the company was pricing ‘on the back of a cigarette packet’. “No productivities could be allocated when bidding items. There was no comparison possible with other projects that we had bid previously,” Jonas Paterson said.
Benchmark Estimating Software believes in the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility, and in line with this we are proud to engage in several programs with community organisations which allow us to support our local social environment.
Our offices will close in the afternoon of Friday, 22nd December this year, opening for business again on Tuesday, 2nd January. We wish you a wonderful festive season, and look forward to working with you in 2018.
One objective at Benchmark Estimating Software has always been to achieve universality: to develop an effective solution for all companies, from the very large to the very small. The benefits of the software to a smaller business are demonstrated by the experience of All Civils WA.
Benchmark Estimating Software will be exhibiting at the Road Expo Scotland, 1 – 2 November 2017, Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh, Scotland. This event provides an opportunity for attendees to gain insight into the very latest traffic management, road maintenance and road safety technology designed for the Scottish road network.
As a new business in the sector, Cherrie Civil Engineering took the opportunity to implement Benchmark Estimating Software when the company was launched in 2015.
This decision has proven extremely beneficial to the business.
The new ‘Banded Items’ solution automates the numerous processes to deliver time and cost savings while maintaining the accuracy and integrity of your quotes.
We have now achieved a position of universality. No matter whether you are a small, medium or large organisation, private or public, whether you have a team of skilled estimators or project managers generating the estimates, Benchmark Estimating Software is your solution
