CostX is an investment that is sure to provide efficiencies and improve accuracy in any cost management practice. The user-friendly nature and flexibility it provides makes it, for me, head and shoulders above the competition for both 2D and 3D measuring capabilities.

ARAMBOL LLP was formed in February 1995, providing a multi-disciplinary property consultancy service to clients in the commercial, industrial, retail, leisure, education and residential sectors. Located in central London, their team consists of an experienced mix of chartered surveyors, project managers, cost consultants and building surveyors.

Making the Change

Previously within the company we used other software or the old fashioned scale rule. Staff had used CostX before at their previous work and recommended it here to assist with the BIM projects we were working on. After the assistance with getting a rental licence and being able to show the capabilities to senior staff, the question simply became which package of CostX would be most suitable for our company, given our use of Revit Models.

The Outcome

CostX provides many benefits, including being able to carry out and check measurements with great ease, which can be stored in one place for anyone in the company to access. Combined with CostXL, we are able to update our cost exercises with ease providing an audit trail of how, where, and why we generated the measurements used in estimates. Plus, network licences mean anyone in the office can use the program. It’s easy to get to grips with for anyone with previous experience in measurement software. With CostX, we are able to compete for more BIM projects, and provide confidence to our clients that we are a progressive business investing in the latest technology.
