In the school year 2011/2012, we connected with Hermes, which granted us 4BUILD program building licenses for school purposes. Cooperation in all respects is more than satisfactory, in the event that any questions or problems arise, they are solved by up-to-date answers by e-mail, telephone or even appearing with us. With the use of the program, students as well as teachers are very satisfied because it makes us easier and, above all, quicker, and consequently, more complex work in the field of construction calculations.

Company Kolektor Koling d.o.o. due to rapid growth, it needs an effective tool for preparing offers, managing and monitoring the construction and preparation of monthly bills. The 4BUILD program allows this. The program is constantly evolving and already indicates a connection with BIM models, but because, in view of the trends in construction, the useful value of the program will increase. The program in the company is still tested, but in the light of experience both with the use of the program and with the willingness of Hermes to adapt and improve the program, we are slowly moving into operational use.

In the company Prenova-Gradbenik d.o.o. we use the 4build package to prepare bids, calculations and analyzes and to date have fulfilled expectations. The next step is to introduce a situation-sharing package and link with the ERP system, which will allow for full control of the offered, ordered and embedded material and work. In the introduction, I would particularly praise the responsiveness of the Hermes team to the corrections and proposed improvements to the package.

At the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Maribor, we use the software solution of the Construction Calculation of Hermes for the third academic year. The computer application Construction Quarry 4build presents a complete solution primarily in the field of building calculations, and with its upgrade, also a support tool for monitoring the operation and performance of the project during the construction of the facility and preparing financial calculations at the end of the project. The basic program 4build Lite is used in the execution of computer exercises in the subject of Economics of building undergraduate studies and the upgrade of 4build Standard in the subject Management of construction projects in the postgraduate program. Since both versions of the program summarize theoretical approaches to the creation of bid prices for construction services and construction operations during the construction of the building, the computer program in the implementation of the pedagogical process serves as an extremely useful application, whereby students can demonstrate the actual use of theoretical knowledge in practice.

Already within the framework of the design project of the New Building of the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology and the Faculty of Computer and Information Science of the University of Ljubljana, we have planned the transparent and transparent monitoring of the implementation of the project on the operational execution side, including control and accounting. The 4BUILD software solution provides comprehensive control of activities, e-supervision of the construction book, automatic preparation of construction situations for operators, and a review of the financial position and realization of works on the project.

For the business economics we have been using dedicated solutions from Hermes for many years. Last year, we also switched to 4BUILD, which is based on the latest information technology trends in the development of software tools. The transition to a new Data Conversion Tool took place smoothly and enabled instant work. Due to the market situation, which in the present times requires fast responsiveness in the preparation of offers, we work without such a solution. The process of preparing offers and bills would be substantially extended without 4BUILDa. 4BUILD enables us to automate processes and thus save time.

By using the 4BUILD software tool, we can already analyze the key sources of the project in the basis of the preparation of the offer, thus giving us a complete insight into the projected costs of construction investment projects. And to prepare a competitive offer, we are aware of the importance of optimizing the value of individual sources. 4BUILD enables us to prepare our own databases with a technological normative background, which ensures the preparation of offers according to the company’s own technological capabilities.

Documents in 4BUILD Standard
The 4BUILD Standard package has the ability to attach documents to help document feeding and control. The 4BUILD Standard program allows the entire documentation to be stored in one place. It can be accessed through a program anywhere in the structure to which the data relates. All persons having access to the content of the 4BUILD Standard program are also enabled with a single click to access related documents. More…
