Effortless valuations 

With Access ConQuest estimating’s integrated valuations features, all the information a surveyor needs is available immediately. 

Detailed analytical pricing, resource analysis, subcontractor and supplier quotations and comparisons are all brought forward into the valuation. 

You have instant access to all the estimator's comparison sheets, trade mark-ups and more. You can use ConQuest estimating’s enquiry management features to send out your own revised enquiries, and use the data you gather from this to justify any 'make or buy' decisions. 

ConQuest estimating allows for internal and external valuations, which can have different rates and quantities. Items can be re-measured by value, quantity and take off, or by percentage complete.
