Schedules and Contract Writing Software

The Goldenseal architecture software automatically calculates a simple time project schedule for each project that you design or manage, so you can tell clients "how long" as well as "how much".

You can also turn an estimate into a detailed construction contract or specification sheet with one click of a button.  You can use the spec sheet as a simple project "scope of work". Goldenseal can also combine the specs with additional "boilerplate" clauses to write a complete set of contracts or subcontracts for the project.

Architectural Estimating Software

Goldenseal is project estimating software that provides quick planning estimates for residential and light commercial building projects.  It will help you to give a quick and accurate construction cost estimate to your clients as you design a project.

The "smart dimensions" in the Goldenseal estimator make it easy to create a "ballpark" estimate, and to recalculate the building cost when you change its size and details.  It's also easy to duplicate an estimate, and see the price for different "what if" changes in construction costs.

Goldenseal includes "whole project" estimation for new construction and additions, and "room by room" cost estimates for remodeling.  It includes over 2000 unit costs and assemblies, so you'll be able to include the cost of most construction options right out of the box.
