VQ Construction is an all-trades construction company located in Glasgow, Scotland. VQ undertake projects in various areas of general building contractor work, including Refit and Refurbishment projects across the Commercial, Leisure, Retail and Industry sectors.
Previously managing their estimating processes through spreadsheets and manually doing take-off’s by hand, VQ realised they needed to purchase an estimating solution to save time and improve the accuracy of their estimates. VQ was spending too much time working from first principles each time so it was important that they implemented a system that allowed them to reuse information through libraries so they didn’t have to remember rates or hand-type further information against each project.
Members of the team previously used Causeway and this solution was considered, however after looking into EValuate and Eque2’s Construct for Sage Accounts solution, it made sense to implement both Eque2 solutions to manage the full project lifecycle in one fully integrated system. VQ also chose to implement the Subcontractor Enquiry Portal as part of EValuate which will allow them to issue enquiries, drawings & revisions to their subcontractors and also collate and analyse responses via an online portal.
