Cost Reports

The C5D package includes several types of cost reports, to serve different purposes. Easily import them all in a single step.

Audit Reports: Assists the end user in validating classifications, identifications, costs and units. Helps ensure everything in your ARCHICAD project is assigned for reporting.

Detailed Reports: Helps the users apply large amounts of cost data and details through an Export/Import data exchange with Excel.

Model Element Reports: Broken down by trades of construction, these reports organize model elements into systems, generates takeoff quantities, and allows users to assign units and unit costs to model elements.

Zone Reports: Used to generate target based estimates and fill scope gaps where model elements may not be included (or not modeled yet).


Excel Estimate (XLSM)

CONTRABIM's Excel Template allows you to specify a file path to your ARCHICAD published reports, and refresh them within seconds! This creates a new level of speed between model and estimate, allowing you to work faster and with more iterations as you dial in your model contents.

Each report has it's own worksheet, which can be customized and formatted to fit the end users desires. Create charts to visualize your data, and prepare sub-totals to be included in the estimate summary.

*The Excel Estimate template is Macro-Enabled, which allows for seamless refresh of published ARCHICAD reports. This macro-enabled file is compatible on Mac & PC versions of Excel, 2016 and newer.
