Chalkstring takeoff software - counts and lines

Does this sound familiar?

Takeoff is done manually, in software or spreadsheets, so you waste time copying quantities to your estimates.

Project drawings are stored in personal folders or shared drives, making them hard to access remotely or by a wider team.

It's difficult to keep track of drawing revisions and share the details of each change with the project team.


Chalkstring can help. 

How it works

Upload your drawings

Upload single or multiple drawings at all stages of your projects, both pre and post contract.

Take your measures

Set your scale and easily measure areas, lines, perimeters & counts.

Review quantities

Your measures link automatically to your bill of quantities, ready for review.
