Win Better Work, More Often
Improve accuracy and reduce cost across the tender process to increase your profitability.
Causeway's estimating solution helps contractors and subcontractors manage the bidding and tendering process. An integrated CAD/BIM Measure tool makes for rapid take-off and measurement, while easy to use features allow you to quickly build up and submit estimates using standard pricing information and your own previous estimates.
The solution's bid comparison capability also helps you evaluate bids from different suppliers to make the right choice of supplier every time. Underpinning all of this is a shared central database offering collaboration across projects in a secure environment and with an audit trail of changes.
Up your win/bid ratio. Bid for and win more work. Get your estimates right first time.
Quickly create accurate estimates. Tap into previous estimates to avoid re-work and free-up more time to focus on tasks that add value.
Compare and evaluate competitive bids from subcontractors. Choose the right suppliers to reduce risk and increase profitability.
Store project data in a secure central repository. Avoid data islands and spreadsheets on local hard drives that risk data loss over time.
Adopt a common approach to estimating that fits your company’s way of doing things by making sure all estimators follow the same processes and procedures.
Optimise the use of your resources by spreading the workload across multiple estimators in the same or different locations.
Save Time with CAD/BIM Measure
Quick and accurate take-off and measurement.
CAD/BIM Measure is an integrated component within Causeway's estimating solution. This intuitive graphical tool makes for quick and easy measurement when building up your BoQ, saving time and delivering accurate results on which to base your pricing.
It will open your drawing information regardless of format, including CAD files, PDF’s, IFC files and BIM models.
Take Control of the Tendering Process Across your Entire Subcontractor Base
Streamline the tendering and bidding process using Causeway eTender.
eTender is a secure, Cloud-based digital tendering and bidding system for contractors and subcontractors. The platform automates the sending out of tender enquires and receipt of bids and eliminates email overload by allowing you to store project documentation online.
The dashboard view lets you monitor the status of each tender and see at a glance which packages have been priced by which suppliers. Use the bid comparison feature to compare and evaluate returned bids and make the right choice of supplier every time.
eTender seamlessly integrates with Causeway Estimating making it easy to create, send and respond to tenders. Subcontractors can price tenders directly online adding notes and documents.

We have been utilising Causeway Estimating for more than 10 years in a multi-user environment to price a mixture of our own trade work combining labour, plant, materials and sub-contract. This is a reliable product worth consideration by any sized contractor as it is intuitive, flexible, yet still providing highly complex analytical data.
