Speci@lEST uses only the very latest technology in both estimating software and associated estimating aids.







The estimating software used is Amtech Enterprise Estimating system both incorporating electronic digitisers where quantities can be measured quickly and accurately, using known scales, or calibrated scales if drawings are on a reduced scale.

We also use AutoCAD 2016, Microsoft Office 2016 and Adobe Professional.
