Rapid Estimates are a core element of the 1build platform. From your Rapid Estimate view, you can add items, groups, and assemblies, as well as adjust material and labor costs, and enter project details like wage type. Rapid Estimates connect to other 1build tools like cloud-based takeoff, exports, and link sharing.

Here are the steps to start your Rapid Estimate:

  1. Start in your 1build dashboard and click New Project.

  2. Choose Do It Myself.

  3. Add your project title and location at the top of your estimate.

  4. Go to the top left and choose the state and county for the cost data library.

  5. Begin adding your own line items, or choose an item or assembly from the 1build library.

  6. Enter quantities for each item and watch the total cost change in the top right corner.
