    BuildPartner is a pricing platform for construction. It helps architects, surveyors and contractors manage pricing for projects under £1m in a simple and transparent way.

    BuildPartner is the only price management software for construction work under £1m. The other option is to use Microsoft excel, and since it is not specifically made for this purpose, there is a lot of repetition and wasted time.

    The BuildPartner software ranges between £15 - £80pcm, there is also a professional service which ranges between 0.1 - 1% of project value.
