Utility Estimating Software

HCSS understands that contractors focused on the construction of underground utilities such as communications, sewers, water lines, storm drainage, culverts, and tunnels that require replacement, repair, and/or new installations need estimating software to help them manage complex bids with accuracy and speed.

HeavyBid software is used as a utilities estimating solution that is designed to develop estimated costs with pinpoint accuracy and produce proposals that span across all civil industries and disciplines including underground utilities. HeavyBid’s versatility allows civil construction estimators to break complex problems into solvable pieces that accurately capture the costs and streamlines an entire construction estimating process so estimators can get accurate bids out the door in significantly less time.

Estimating Software with Your Utility Takeoff Data

Utility takeoff programs can create sanitary and storm calculations including user-defined cut brackets for the linear feet required for pipe excavation and backfill to create excavation quantities commonly found in underground utility construction. HeavyBid can take the quantified data created in a takeoff system, import it as bid items that are then populated to create accurate, crew-based cost estimates.

Other benefits of HeavyBid include the ability to identify and keep track of subcontractor and materials suppliers’ pricing, to easily make last-minute changes across an entire estimate, and the ability to eliminate manually keyed budget entry as HeavyBid can export a budget that can be directly imported into most ERP/accounting systems.

After the job is won, send your completed cost estimate data to HeavyJob where you will be able to track your production on a daily basis and gather project progress and production history for future utility construction bids.
