WinEstimator, Inc., a global leader in estimating software development announced the release of DesignEst Pro. DesignEst Pro leverages the “building information model” (BIM) technology to quickly produce both conceptual budgets and detailed cost estimates.
DesignEst Pro links the object and property library in Revit Architecture with the object and properties in a WinEst cost database, allowing both conceptual and detailed estimates to be developed as the building is being designed. This dynamic link provides support for unlimited what-if scenarios during the design phase of the project. As design alternatives are explored, the cost estimate is changed accordingly.
DesignEst Pro does require Revit Arch 2008. You can take a look at all the features at - http://www.winest.com/products_designestpro.aspx.
