Breedon Aggregates Scotland , the largest independent aggregates company in the UK, has selected Causeway Estimating and CADMeasure to improve estimating efficiency and reduce risk. The package includes the ‘black top’ module, which has been specially developed for surfacing contractors.

The company employs over 400 people in Scotland and supplies a wide range of products and services to the construction and building sectors. Historically, the estimating team had been measuring quantities from drawings manually and using a range of different spreadsheets to produce estimates.

“In the current climate it is especially important to be efficient so we decided to bring all of our estimating information together in one simple format that was easy to access,” explained Breedon’s Grant Shewan. “We were very impressed with the number of reports and other information that can be generated through Causeway Estimating. So not only will it save us time, it will also help us ensure our quotes are accurate – which benefits our clients and ourselves.”

Breedon will also be using CADMeasure to take highly accurate measurements from CAD drawings.

“More of our clients are expecting us to do the take-off ourselves, and to assume the financial risk if any of the quantities are wrong. Using CADMeasure will give us a higher level of accuracy and help to reduce that risk,” Grant Shewan added.

Following a successful implementation in Scotland, the company hopes to roll out Causeway to its other UK operations. Discover more about Causeway Estimating and Causeway CADMeasure.
