Build Aviator

Building efficiency and control into every job. 

With Build Aviator from Gibbs & Dandy, you can link the design phase of your project to the pricing and ordering of building materials – making your building project simpler, faster, cost-effective and compliant. Our partnership with LABC will then ensure what is actually built is approved by building control.       

We have produced the below video to explain the idea behind Build Aviator:

Quantity Take-Off (Estimating Service)

The Build Aviator quantity take-off service is the most effective and comprehensive estimating service available. It provides an accurate and efficient estimate of materials, labour and hire required, using products that are locally available through Gibbs & Dandy. The service provides a suite of bespoke personalised reports, which include product summaries, bill of quantities, schedule of works, pricing sheets and tool hire reports. The service also adds in any profits and margins for the project to ensure accuracy and to support with budgeting and tendering. Whether a builder, developer or self-builder - this service is extremely beneficial for new build projects, extensions and existing conversions. 

If a SAP assessment has been conducted, the Build Aviator estimating service can provide additional benefits by using the product specification from this SAP report. This will assist in ensuring a compliant estimate is produced and therefore provide a smooth route to building control sign off.
