Designed specifically for building supply companies, the Lumber Yard Planswift plugin is a mainstay for many lumber yards, estimators. This plugin includes assembly groups for the following:
- Misc. Foundation
- Framing (same as Bid Pro Framing)
- Drywall (same as Bid Pro Drywall)
- Roofing (shingle & metal)
- Siding (same as Bid Pro Siding)
The fastest way to perform any takeoff is using the assembly approach. That is, capturing all material and/ or labor items that are associated with each takeoff. This allows you to capture everything needed with the minimum amount of takeoff required.
With our custom assemblies, you set up each assembly by selecting items from drop-down lists. Once your selections have been made, you simply perform the on-screen takeoff. Your material list organized by location and consolidated material list are instantly generated and ready to print to either Excel or pdf formats (all done within Planswift). It's that simple!
If the drop-down list in the assembly doesn't have what you need in it, just go to the Lists tab, find the appropriate list and add it! You can duplicate the assemblies creating as many different preset assemblies as you want, so that with each preset assembly that you make, your estimating process becomes more and more efficient!
