You can produce architect quality planning application and building regs compliant drawings without being a trained CAD expert.

Worried about cowboy customers?

And all the paperwork ensures you’re complying with CDM 2015.

Everyone’s safety plus a fear of fines keeping you awake at night?

Health & Safety Xpert

Can be used as a standalone or with your EstimatorXpress estimate data. The software produces a pre-construction information document, construction phase health and safety plan, health and safety file, risk assessments, COSHH assessments, company health and safety policy, method statement, permits to work and loads more documents, specific to the actual project (not every form the software contains).

Want all your projects to run as smoothly and cost-efficiently as possible?


If you have multiple projects you can import all your estimates into ProjectXpert for a full overview of where everyone and everything need to be. Unexpected change? One click and you can see the implications across all the jobs.
