This high standard of quality business was originally formed in 1995, when the need for a quick and cost effective billing system was identified by David J van der Merwe and soon after Integrated Costing Solutions were founded with “Quantify-it” Full-House Cost Estimating systemtm as the billing sytem which soon became the most cost effective and consumer friendly billing system available. Individual backgrounds within the property sector and with exposure to various business plans, analysing of market trends, specific market requirements, plus individual projects transformed I C S to become a huge support system to the construction industry.

What make us different and capable:
Understanding of architectural and engineering drawings.
Knowledge of construction materials and methods.
Acquaintance with customs or preferences about how their own company executes its construction projects.
A systematic and organized approach.
Knowhow in preparing estimates that are accurate and clear for management and customers.
Competence in evaluating bids from subcontractors, not only on price, but also on scope and responsiveness with an eye on past performance as well.
Engineering skills to structure the estimate in a way that assists cost optimization, possibly with different construction methods and materials.
Sound judgment and ethics to ensure that cost estimating serves the business and customers properly and treats subcontractors fairly (no “bid shopping” as a prime contractor or “bid peddling” as a subcontractor.)
The continuing acquisition of experience and information to improve results further. This can include finding out why estimates for a project were accepted or rejected, how many contractors provided estimates for the project in question, and if the lowest bidder made any omissions in the estimate it provided.
