Beard Construction Group uses numerous reliable software programs in the estimating and construction planning phase of the project. BCG provides its customers with a more accurate, detailed estimate prior to construction complemented by a comprehensive construction plan to assist all members of the project management team in the planning and construction phase of the project.
Beard Construction Group’s estimating software provides clients a detailed cost estimate and a more accurate, comprehensive bid proposal. Our programs will integrate with the web and other software programs and can download into certain accounting software.
Beard Construction Group uses innovative software for estimating such as Heavy Bid. This extremely flexible earthwork and concrete software gives BCG the ability to prepare a detailed cost estimate that easily converts into a more accurate, comprehensive bid proposal. In addition, Carlson Takeoff Suite is a cut/fill volumes and data prep program for layout or machine control that can estimate jobs using paper plan digitizing, PDFs, or electronic CAD files. The Takeoff Suite can perform tasks ranging from accurately determining subgrade, trench, pipe and roadway quantities to to creating a 3D model for machine control and much more.
BCG uses Primavera, the industry leader, as its primary software tool to schedule each discipline item and monitor the progress on the overall project.

Overall, our scheduling keeps projects running smoothly and allows us to make quick adjustments when changes occur.
