Faithful+Gould, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, chooses Exactal / CostX for their international cost consultancy business

Exactal and Faithful+Gould are pleased to announce the adoption of CostX® in Faithful+Gould’s international cost consultancy business in a new agreement between the two companies.

CostX® is world-leading estimating software for both BIM & 2D, with unsurpassed takeoff features that have been widely adopted amongst companies both large and small in over 80 countries. The investment by Faithful+Gould will establish CostX® as the principal measurement and estimating platform for operations in the Middle East, UK & Europe and Asia Pacific markets.

Before their decision, Faithful+Gould went through a thorough analysis of estimating & takeoff solutions in the market to ensure they selected the best software available. Due to Exactal’s prominent rise in the Middle East, the Middle East team were the first to select CostX®, with the UK & Europe and Asia Pacific teams completing the recommendation to enable a global approach with interoperability between offices.

One of the important influencers in the decision to use CostX® was the high standard of support given to Faithful+Gould from Exactal’s worldwide network of IT support technicians and product specialists, who are all qualified Quantity Surveyors. Additionally, the powerful CostX® product combines BIM & 2D takeoff, estimating spreadsheets and customisable reports into one program, without the need to switch between modules. Exactal has over ten years’ experience in delivering estimating solutions to their international network of respected clients.

Managing Director EMEA Steve Dousie notes of the deal “We are extremely pleased that Faithful+Gould will be making the switch over to CostX®. Our team is committed to supporting them as they complete the roll out, and we look forward to working collaboratively with Faithful+Gould to enhance their capabilities in the takeoff and estimating space”.

Marc Longhurst, Strategy and Development Director for the UK & Europe division of SNC-Lavalin’s Faithful+Gould business, comments “We are committed to delivering world class services to our clients enabled by an integrated suite of industry leading tools. Our selection of CostX® was based on its comprehensive functionality, ease of use and excellent engagement and technical support provided by Exactal’s team”.
