Gain a new project perspective and greater estimating confidence

Visualize and better understand the ins and outs of construction project plans. Speed up accurate quantity takeoff. Collaborate with the building team for more predictable and lower costs. That’s the beauty of 5D BIM with Sage. See how we have partnered with Autodesk and eTakeoff to deliver a best-in-class 5D BIM solution for production-level estimates.

BIM and estimating your way

Authors of models aren’t estimators. That can cause a lot of work for you during takeoff to reorganize objects into your estimating structure. With our solution, objects are connected to your Sage estimating database, so everything fits with your estimating standards.

Incomplete models?

Most models won’t have all the information you need for your estimate. Supplement missing model information with 2D content—without the hassle.

Faster takeoff from models

Just drag and drop objects from the model to the correct assembly of items in the Sage Estimating database. Then review, modify if needed, and send the information to your estimate.

Design changes simplified

If a design changes—and it always does—no sweat. You can quickly compare changes to the model with the most recent takeoff. Updating your estimate has never been so easy.

Reliable audit trail

Need to verify the source of an item or assembly in your estimate? You can easily drill down to see the exact location on the model.

Bridge the gap between BIM and estimating

Bridging the gap:
2D + 3D + Sage Estimating = 5D BIM

Why waste time learning multiple takeoff tools that only work with models. eTakeoff Bridge for Sage Estimating is designed for full-time estimators, whether they work with 2D digital drawings, 3D models, or a combination of both.
