As many classic estimating and tendering apps, NOVA BIM is essentially concerned with successful construction cost management with cost planning, quantity determination, specifications, bid platform, price comparison, order, addendum, allowance, target / actual comparison, invoice and cost analysis. All components can also be linked with IFC data for BIM 3D model-based work. The standardized integration of addresses, documents, appointments and tasks enables a comfortable and consistent project control.
With interfaces to PDF, Excel, DATANORM, ÖNORM, IFC and GAEB, as well as the platform functions for a web-based and modern co-working you edit and share data quickly and securely with your project partners.

With the component Projects & Controlling you can organize projects, build an address book and import your address data, use search and filter functions for quick retrieval, assign tags and thus categorize data, manage and share any documents. If you want to work together, you can organize users and groups and control access rights.
You can create and version cost estimates for projects. E.g. the cost structure of DIN 276, OMNICLASS, UNIFORMAT or a BIM 3D building model (IFC) is based. Or you work with any of your own cost structure (cost centers, service areas, ...). Cost planning can also be developed on the basis of existing comparison projects – for the respective cost group, component or service area. Now you can also use your chosen cost structure to generate complete bills of quantities in an automated and trade-oriented manner or to assign the respective cost groups there. This assignment then forms the basis for the holistic cost analysis of your project. For all phases of costing, you analyze the values of the respective cost groups. You control the fineness of the evaluations by simply folding up and down the levels of your cost structure. All results are graphically evaluated and can be printed as a PDF document or output to an Excel file. The BIM add-on enables the visualization of the costs with reference to the selected component groups and components.
The bill of quantities creation component enables you to create and edit billing and billing specifications online. From external systems, you can import GAEB, ÖNORM and EXCEL files, further process and use as your own bill of quantities templates for copying. The powerful editor for formatting, tables and graphics supports you with freely formulated texts. You can also use VOB-compliant and legally compliant tender texts and calculation aids from various providers such as STLB-Bau online, DBD, sirAdos, Heinze, company and manufacturer texts in the format Datanorm or standard service catalogs (STLK) and the StB-By of the public sector.
You can quickly and easily determine the quantity for bill of quantities items with integrated calculation functions and add comments. With the BIM Add-On bill of quantities items can be additionally linked with components. The assigned IFC models are available directly in the 3D viewer for convenient quantity transfer and updating. For mathematically complex calculations, you can access the formulary according to REB 23.003 and establish relationships between computational approaches. Already when creating the bill of quantities, you can assign the cost estimates to cost groups or cost units to get information about cost sharing as early as possible.
Integrated and adjustable bill of quantities check routines ensure that your data is formally flawlessly constructed for print lists as well as GAEB and ÖNORM files. As an option, you can also check the specifications for compliance with the guidelines of the standard catalog of services for road and bridge construction (HVA-StB).
You supplement the print editions with your own company logo and create lean PDF files. A variety of options open up design configurations. You can save the variable table views of the bill of quantities as an Excel file, with calculation and even with the long texts. The data exchange with project partners, such as planners or clients, according to the provisions of GAEB 90/2000 /XML or according to ÖNORM A 2063 for Austria.
With the component Tender you can collectr offers as comfortable as never before. Determine the type of award, set the submission deadline and invite the participants to the tender from your address book - or start a public call for tenders. You can share any files and documents and have them confirmed by the bidders. The real trick, however, lies in the offer processing by the participants: the bidders receive an e-mail with a link to your list of services and items and can fill the offer directly online on the platform, password protected and without any additional software. To be on the safe side, they still receive support from the integrated offer-check and can upload their own documents and make suggestions. And if there is something to discuss, then the communication can be reproduced audit-proof in the question-and-answer dialog. As client you decide whether you provide answers only the questioner or equal to all participants available. With the BIM add-on, you as the tenderer can additionally specify whether an IFC 3D model of the project is displayed in the viewer for the bidder and thus components with their characteristics and the assignments to service items for bid creation can be localized and evaluated.
With the component Award you can analyze the offers of the tender - also graphically -, import more offers via EXCEL, GAEB and ÖNORM interface, manually record, copy, check and rate in the price list with free bidding order. And activate your own cost calculation to compare it with the bids. The comparison provider for ideal, median and median price is calculated automatically. Variants for contingent and alternative items can be selected and evaluated by option. All bidder information, such as products or manufacturers, are displayed clearly in the tabel of comparison. Unit price shares and discounts can be evaluated at all levels. After the evaluation, you can create a contract bill of quantities, a lot allocation is of course also possible. The output of all print lists with your own company logo - create PDF files or generate Excel files for further evaluations. Data exchange with project partners according to GAEB 90/2000 and XML - without restriction.
The Accounting component gives you three powerful construction online tools. There is the contract management, with the overview of the agreed services. In addition to the main order, which is available from the award or through the direct data import (GAEB86), you also process supplements. Each addendum – manually recorded or imported via interface – can include any number of bill of quantities items and receives its own number and status – eg. B. "recognized" or "released". You can evaluate the main order and supplements either in a holistic or differentiated way and output them as a PDF document as well as GAEB and ÖNORM file.
In order to determine the evidence for the service provided and billable, you enter free quantitiy calculations of the progressed work or calculate with formulas according to REB23.003. You can also access here, if necessary, a standardized interface (DA11 / X31) for import and export of the QTO data. Conveniently, you can also invite the contractor directly to digital performance reporting on the NOVA BIM platform. The BIM Add-On can also be used to perform the incremental measurement directly in the 3D model (internally or externally directly from the contractor). You can then review and approve (or reject) the QTOs and use them for the current cost management as part of the target / actual comparison.
And you deduce from it invoices or credits. The invoice types for advance payment, budget billing, partial bill and final invoice are available for invoice management. Contract terms such as agreed securities, discounts and freely definable deductions are automatically taken into account when the invoice is created. Special approval mechanisms, the consolidated or cost sharing statement of the invoice overview and the selection between cumulative billing and the pure incremental increase support you in the audit and payment approval.
The BIM Add-On significantly supports project editing by visualizing data in a building model. Based on the Open Bim & IFC open standards, 3D models can be exported from all common CAD systems and further processed in NOVA BIM. Initially, a project-oriented "room and object book" is generated in the BIM module and linked bidirectionally with the data of the 3D model. Thus, the complete process and business logic, from cost planning to final invoice and cost analysis, can be spatially displayed in the 3D viewer with comfortable selection and navigation.
Due to the deep BIM integration, the 3D model is available in all components of NOVA BIM, including billing with measurement and follow-up management and project-related cost analysis.
