Exactal Expansion in the UK

In Exactal’s continued expansion worldwide, 2013 has seen the UK & Europe become a cornerstone of our growth. A large number of companies in the UK have now made the change to using CostX® for their take off and estimating. To support this growth moving forward, Exactal has now shifted the London office into larger premises in Mayfair at Level 3, 25 Bruton Lane, London W1J6JQ. The new office location provides much more space and will allow us to continue to grow our staff numbers in the region over the next few years.

Since the beginning of 2013, CostX® licence numbers in the UK have increased by over 400%. With the UK Government mandating Level 2 BIM on all projects by 2016, building and QS companies are beginning to use 5D BIM on their projects more than ever. With our advanced and industry leading 5D BIM features, such as multiple BIM file compatibility (including IFC4), automatic quantity extraction and live-linked workbooks, CostX® is becoming the 5D BIM software of choice for progressive QS and building companies.

Some of the companies that purchased new CostX® licences over the past year include:

  • BAM Construct
  • Capita Symonds
  • Carillion
  • Cluttons
  • Currie & Brown
  • Gleeds
  • Sir Robert McAlpine
  • Sweett Group
  • Turner & Townsend
  • Willmott Dixon
  • WSP Management Services
  • plus many other clients, both large and small, from a range of different industries

In 2014, the UK growth is expected to continue. Exactal is confirmed to exhibit at a number of trade shows in the UK; the RICS BIM Conference, the QSi Conference, BIM Show Live and UK Build, to name a few. Exactal is also planning to organise our own BIM-centric roadshow in late March.

Of the UK’s expansion, CEO Mark Kefford states “With the emphasis that the UK is placing on BIM, the increase in clients over the last year is reflective of CostX®’s world-leading BIM capabilities. We see 2014 & beyond as having great potential for Exactal in the UK, and we will continue to grow to support our clients”.
