Why Choose Sigma?
As you complete price and quantity details for individual building sections, the total price of the construction project is automatically summarised on the Summary sheet. From here you can drill back down into the pricing details for each section if you wish.
When you have finished and saved an estimate, you can reuse these estimates for new construction projects by importing building sections from an existing project into a new one. You do not need to update any formulas because Sigma does it for you – the only thing you need to change is the pricing and quantity.
In this way, you will gradually build your own database of estimates for building parts that you regularly use. Then you have them ready for the next construction project you need to estimate in Sigma.
