Regulated Utility Estimating Software

HCSS understands how important it is for utilities to efficiently produce fact-based, defendable project cost estimates in order to ensure that projects are adequately budgeted and funded.

HeavyBid software is designed to quickly create accurate estimates based on up-to-date rates and historical data, supporting target price negotiations and rate case submission. It works for projects of all sizes and at every AACE estimate class. Prebuilt integrations (including Primavera) and APIs connect our software to various platforms, allowing for data alignment across all systems.

Case Study

Learn how Campos EPC utilized HeavyBid to save time and streamline operations, saving their utility client over 120M in negotiated construction costs.

“As the result of that knowledge and experience, we have saved one utility over $120 million in negotiated construction costs. Using HeavyBid, there is a sufficient amount of detail built into our estimate which provides a defendable level of logic that facilitates successful negotiations while satisfying the regulators and ratepayers.”
