Abstract: The majority of construction businesses today use different models for cost control or material estimation. This estimation is done before the construction begins while the cost control is done during the later period. Therefore, the different options available for cost estimation as well as material estimation may complicate the process. Overestimating and underestimating can also have adverse effects. This application aims to integrate and simplify solutions to all these problems into a single application.
This project aims to develop software that calculates cost and materials used based on blueprints or models of the building; input constraints include the building dimensions or pre-loaded layouts in a library. The project will provide suffice model for estimation for commercial as well as domestic purpose. Considering continuous construction and improvements which are frequent in developing countries like India, the model’s application tends to be useful for apartments, malls, condos, houses, studios, shopping complexes and workshops.

Keywords: Construction estimate, raw material cost, building cost, Java.
