Using bespoke estimating software has allowed us to deliver benefits to both our business but also our Clients in the form of auditability, transparency and processing speed of cost estimation.

CCS Candy also enables us to investigate the carbon impact of our projects. For example, when ordering materials it allows us to investigate the overall whole-life carbon impact such as transport and logistics. This helps us to weigh problems such as ordering aggregates from a local quarry 3 miles away at higher cost versus a quarry 20 miles away at a cheaper rate.

Looking at this, we can generate a carbon calculation of our tenders and analyse specific components to drive down and develop most advantageous environmental and cost-efficient solution.
