The PlansXpress Steel Beam Estimating Calculator is designed for use with PlansXpress. It estimates the material, labour and plant required for any steel beams you have drawn in PlansXpress.
If you are estimating completely within EstimatorXpress (i.e. not using PlansXpress), use the Steel Beam, Fabricated Steel Beam or Encased Fabricated Steel Beam Estimating Calculator instead.
The PlansXpress Steel Beam Estimating Calculator is linked to the specification.
Data about the steel you selected and drew in PlansXpress will be combined with information taken from the specification to calculate the following items automatically:
- Universal beam
- Fabrication and connections
- Bricks to support steelwork
Plus all labour and plant associated with the above
