Autodesk Fabrication ESTmep software gives MEP contractors the tools for more accurate estimating, cost analysis, value engineering, and variation tracking on building projects.
Fabrication ESTmep enables greater control of estimates, costs, and bottom-line projections through a detailed list of adjustable cost breakdown options. Full interoperability with other Autodesk Fabrication solutions helps you more effectively track, document, and price project variations.
Take Off Methods
Users of Autodesk Fabrication ESTmep have a number of Take-off methods available to utilize when producing a quotation.
-Service Take-off – unconnected mode.
-Services Take-off with Design Line – The ability to import a 2D MEP services layout drawing as an underlay for tracing.
-Digitizer Take-off using a Digitizer template to select the parts relating to the Services setup.
Shared Library of Real-World Content
Fabrication ESTmep uses libraries of real-world content, pricing, and costing data, enabling more accurate cost estimation and analysis. Adjust database information to suit the needs of your clients and your projects. Fabrication ESTmep also provides the feature to migrate your existing MAP content to Autodesk Fabrication.
Comprehensive Project Factors
Fabrication ESTmep has adjustable databases that enable you to quickly make iterations based on project or market demands. Change labor, material, wastage, installation, fabrication costs, and other variables, as well as overall profit margins and markups.
Fabrication ESTmep enables you to perform value engineering on services. Swap out services for a different material type or manufacturer using design line technology, and produce cost/benefit options for your clients.
Track Project Variations
Record and re-price iterations on a project. Record all Adds and Omits on a job to support traceability and promote accountability for changes, and make comparisons against the original costing.
Integrated with Autodesk Fabrication Software
The common database in Autodesk Fabrication software enables you to more seamlessly and comprehensively estimate and analyze costs and variation track models produced in Autodesk Fabrication FABmep, Autodesk Fabrication CADmep, and Autodesk Fabrication CAMduct software.
