Causeway Estimating and CAD Measure software are helping civil engineering contractor John Cradock Ltd to produce tenders more quickly and manage risk with greater confidence.

John Cradock Ltd operates throughout Ireland, undertaking all types of civil engineering and building projects in both the public and private sectors, with a particular emphasis on railways, roads and bridges, urban renewal and water & wastewater projects.

Previously the company had been extracting quantities manually from drawings and producing estimates using spreadsheets. With a growing number of enquiries to manage it was clear that an alternative solution was required. Having considered a number of options John Cradock identified the Causeway solution as offering the required functionality.

Using CAD Measure enables quantities to be taken directly from drawings, including PDF and DWG formats, with the information being exported into Estimating with no need to key in the data. Using Estimating the company is not only able to save time on tender production but can also carry out tender adjudication in more detail, helping to better understand and manage risk.

  • Improved turnaround of tenders.
