Allplan 2018 quantity take of accuracy certified for twelfth year by TÜV SÜD


ALLPLAN is the only construction industry software provider with certified graphic quantity takeoff
Proving a solution for cost-reliable planning


Munich, January 17, 2018 – For the twelfth time in a row, TÜV SÜD has awarded the current version of Allplan 2018 with the certification mark for software quality and functionality. The certificate proves the software's high level of performance and compliance with applicable standards for the graphic quantity takeoff of selected building groups with the TAI (Tendering Awarding Invoicing) software NEVARIS.

"TÜV SÜD has confirmed for the twelfth time in a row that Allplan is a reliable solution for cost-effective planning in connection with NEVARIS. We are very proud that ALLPLAN is the only company in the construction industry that has a TÜV certificate for software functionality," says Kevin Lea, Senior Vice President of Product Management at ALLPLAN.

With Allplan and the cost management TAI software NEVARIS, architects and engineers are able to carry out sound cost analysis and make reliable budget statements. The smooth data exchange between the software solutions allows for graphic quantity determination.


Standard-compliant, correct and reliable

TÜV SÜD tested the functionality and quality of the graphic quantity takeoff based on a catalog of requirements, which takes into consideration applicable standards such as the German Construction Contract Procedures (VOB) and standards. "During the testing, we selected and examined selected building groups, such as reinforced concrete, masonry, windows and finishing surfaces," says Siegfried Muckenschnabl, Product Specialist at TÜV SÜD.

Are the tested functions VOB-compliant and correctly indicated? Is the software development process completely documented for the connection of the building groups? How does quality control occur? Allplan 2018 successfully passed all tests. Siegfried Muckenschnabl explains: "All the requirements for functionality and quality were met by both the NEVARIS and the Allplan 2018 building groups and construction cost planning."


Design2Cost: Quantity takeoff regarding reliable cost planning

The graphic quantity takeoff is part of the planning method of Allplan Design2Cost. This combines Allplan 2018 with NEVARIS as well as the Allplan IBD building database. With Design2Cost, planners get a sound service description, including a quantity structure, for cost calculation and tendering. Geometric or qualitative changes are immediately taken into consideration and are incorporated into the building model. Design2Cost thus offers an easy introduction to the BIM working method.
