Tim – Designer/Contract Administrator/Estimator, writes the following:
“Please find attached my thoughts about the most important features about working with the FASTBUILD Program since starting work with it over the last two years:
When looking at the Estimate window you get to see a mini version BoQ & Client Specification at the same time so you can view and analyse the hard copy drawing all at the same time (2 screen monitor set-up & ‘paper’ plans).
The method of populating the Estimate sheet is relatively simple & logical – If you find something challenging you can easily manipulate the master template by altering line descriptions, UoM, etc. to suit what you want
I find the program leads you along in a logical sequence so understanding how the program works it is very easy to grasp
You don’t need advanced technical training to understand and work with the program. However, if you have a basic understanding of EXCEL & have a trained/technical background you will grasp the program even quicker such as following the methods recommended in the Australian Standard of Measurement of Building Works taught at TAFE & University
Saves multiple hours in time and effort exerted by measuring a number of trades at the same time
You get your quotes & estimates out very quickly on projects from a simple renovation, cottage, multiple dwellings/units or even a small commercial structure
Arithmetical errors only occur if the input information has been incorrectly transposed
As I work in a multi-role position as a Building Designer, Estimator/Scheduler, Contracts Administrator and cross-over to the different role, the boss is happier with increased productivity in these other areas of our business
We are currently reviewing further improvements to hopefully upgrade Fastbuild to a later, more user friendly version and I’m looking forward enhancing our efficiency from delivering a project. I believe every new skill or function we learn value adds to our business and personal well being.”

I contacted Ivor to conduct 3 x 3 hr, one-on-one training sessions relating to how MS Project can work with the Maximo maintenance management system plus ancillary XL based inputs. At the start of the course, I was unable to build an operational MS Project Template to accommodate all my requirements. Just following the internet based tutorials was no substitute for sitting with an expert and asking specific questions about the precise set up I required. After two sessions I was able to build a robust template and this meant that in the third and final session we were able to get down to the nitty gritty of the project. Ivor was invaluable to me and I don’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone seeking a thorough understanding of what MS Project can (and can’t) do for you.Mick Lampard

Premier Displays are a shopfitting company established in 1978. We are based in Sydney NSW servicing Australia wide. I was introduced to Ivor and Fast Track approx. 5 years ago. I wanted to implement an Building Estimating Software Package that could evolve with my business. I was happy with what I saw however the distance between WA and NSW was a concern. I’m pleased to say I am 100% happy with the software and service. As a result I’ve since made several changes to streamline the process further along with adding a maintenance component. I have no hesitation recommending Ivor and Fast-track. The results have been excellent using his Building Estimating Software.Brent Thomas
