Builders across the construction industry are adopting integrated preconstruction technology at increasingly rapid rates. The use of an integrated preconstruction platform significantly reduces the risk of errors that are inherent with the number of tools being used by preconstruction departments. Integrating both 2D and BIM-based takeoff while supporting unit-based and crew-based estimating with the ability to compare the projects with the company’s own cost history brings significant efficiency gains to the preconstruction workflow.
General contractors and construction management for-a-fee firms are being tasked with producing more estimating deliverables in less time, and in a piecemeal collaboration structure. This industry trend has led companies to search for technology that not only understands this dynamic shift in preconstruction but will also continue to grow as the built environment evolves and encourages collaboration within one platform across multiple disciplines. Since DESTINI Estimator became publicly available in 2015, over 30 companies on the ENR “Top 400 Contractors” list have made the shift to integrated preconstruction technology, including Balfour Beatty, The Korte Company, Gilbane, Layton Construction Company, and Cumming Corporation.
