Towards the end of 2022, we had an influx in demand for our Estimating software, Causeway Estimating.

Several businesses have invested in the Causeway Estimating software solution to help streamline their bid and tendering processes and improve the efficiency of their pre-contract work. 

These new Causeway customers include groundwork and civil contractors, a specialist subcontractor, an FM services provider and a joinery business.

Here we look at a few of the new customers and the benefits that Causeway's Estimating software will bring.

Each of the organisations has undergone significant growth in recent years and wanted to improve their processes, profitability and success in winning new work. Causeway Estimating, which has been designed specifically for construction, helps contractors and subcontractors to manage the bidding and tendering process. It enables estimators to swiftly create accurate estimates using prices from different suppliers and draw on information from previous projects to eliminate rework and improve productivity.

Among the businesses adopting Causeway Estimating is Building Services Now (BSN) Group, a specialist subcontractor that provides construction, mechanical & electrical and decarbonisation services to clients across a wide variety of sectors. With offices in the West Midlands and Manchester and clients spanning healthcare, education, commercial, residential and public sector organisations, BSN Group required a solution that could standardise estimating and tender processes. Causeway Estimating will be used across the different areas of work they undertake while being adaptable to the specific requirements of each type of project.

Parr Facilities Management has similar requirements. It provides FM services such as electrical, mechanical, and fire safety compliance work, building maintenance, refurbishment, and civil works. With offices in Manchester, Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin, Parr FM needed a solution to help standardise its estimating process and create a central database of previous project data across the business.

Causeway Estimating also has benefits for highly specialist construction businesses, such as Foundation Solutions HV, a specialist in foundation work for overhead line pylons as well as for substation, wind turbine and crane installations. In the competitive energy sector, accurate and detailed estimation and tendering are essential and are among the key reasons Causeway Estimating was chosen.

Also adopting Causeway Estimating is Foxdown Construction, a groundworks, earthworks and civil engineering business based in Southeast England that works extensively on residential projects. With its clients including some of the UK’s biggest housebuilders, such as Crest Nicholson, Taylor Wimpey and CALA Homes, improving the efficiency of estimating processes is central to Foxdown Construction’s success and growth.

Similarly, Rathowen Building, a residential main contractor based in Swords in County Dublin, counts some of Ireland’s leading developers among its clients and has worked on projects across the Leinster region. Rathowen Building selected Causeway Estimating to streamline often time-consuming processes to achieve improved productivity.

Finally, Remo Volpe Joinery has also invested in Causeway Estimating. Remo Volpe Joinery is a small business that undertakes kitchen, bathroom, and home interior joinery services as well as other building services. Causeway Estimating was chosen to help this small team maximise its time and allow it to focus on improving profitability and providing a better service to its customers.

Amanda Reynolds, Senior Solutions Manager at Causeway Technologies, said:

“The number of different SMEs from different sectors across the UK and Ireland choosing to work with Causeway's Estimating software demonstrates the versatility and adaptability of the solution. Our aim is to help customers improve their productivity and, ultimately, their profitability. Causeway Estimating, like all our solutions, has evolved as the result of our ongoing collaboration with construction businesses to ensure they have a solution that meets their specific needs.”
