Why 1MNT?

An Innovative Software based Service.

Solving the Major Problems of the Construction Industry Professionals.

Once drawings are ready, it generates “Bills” for contractors in no time with very useful details, which are not on hand in current scenario.

1mnt gives detailed materials as well as labour requirements including plumbing fixtures like, tees, bends, elbows, union etc. It also offers details of building hardware like the number of screws etc. The software also gives formwork requirements, machine hour requirement of Plant & machinery, including no. of labour required for a given task.

An Innovative Tool which provides Management Reports & Decision Making Tools from Basic Design and Drawings.

It performs a detailed cost analysis of RCC works, analysing cost of concrete, steel and form work inter-se.

Besides offering such reports, it works out exact quantity of steel based on “Bar Bending schedule”, which can be generated based on detailed structural design drawings. The bar bending schedule can also be used for factory production.

It can also compare and analyse the “least cost” of structural design i.e. it can do optimisation of structural design from the multiple options provided.

It Solves

The Biggest Headaches of Contractors

Most Contractor /Builders fail to estimate correct profit and achieve targeted profit or incur losses

Billing: Tedious – Time Consuming- Inaccurate

No Project management (Time – Cost overruns) succeeds due to lack of data of resources

Most contractors quote haphazard rates due to lack of systems, data, time and work pressure while bidding

Calculating impact of cost escalation, Price increase- Live is difficult Leakage at site

  • No software which generates exact quantities in desired format from basic design drawings.
  • No software which gives detailed materials as well as labour requirements from basic design drawings.
  • The existing billing process of contractors is highly:
  • Tedious-cumbersome | Boring | Time consuming | Tasking | Inaccurate | Inefficient | Costly
  • Time consumed in billing increases interest / finance cost.
  • No data of Materials, Manpower, Plant & Machineries etc., available on zero day.
  • In absence of Data “Resource Planning” is either absent or difficult.
  • In absence of data, cost control is non-scientific and arbitrary.
  • Arbitrary cost control affects quality, speed of work and ultimately profit.
  • Estimate of exact overhead costs is absent which affects profit margins.
  • Accurate Real Time Sensitive (escalation) Analysis is almost impossible due to lack of data.
  • No Value Engineering is possible due to above constraints.
  • No control over leakage of materials and other resources at the site.
  • Very difficult for contractors and builders to update and prepare “As Built Drawings”.
  • Bar bending scheduling process is tedious and time taking.
  • With only one alternative of structural design it is difficult to judge whether it is really “the least cost design”.
  • Updation of Rate Analysis not always possible and not linked with ultimate cost and profit.
  • All these effects the “Profitability” in nut-shell.
  • Difficult to connect with Project Management software like Prime Vera, MS Project etc

Are You Suffering From Following Problems?

A. Estimating Profits

1. After quoting for any work can you exactly calculate what would be your profit? Or does it remain vague i.e. some few % figure i.e. 7%, 8%, 10% etc.

2. Even if yes, how successful are you in achieving targeted profits? Does it fail basically due to lack of data?

B. Cost Control

1. Do you analyse item wise profit for each and every item, after you have quoted, so that you can control, costs i.e. profit? OR if you have area based contract, do you put a cost ceiling on each item of work?

2. Have you ever worked out list of all materials required for a job on a day zero?

3. Do you audit & check wastage or theft of materials from site? Do you have accurate data for that?

3. Do you know which materials you need to negotiate & buy and which your team need to buy based on costs?

4. Have you ever scientifically calculated detailed overhead and finance costs or the detailed quantity of formwork?

C. Billing

i. Accuracy:

1. Are you able to check thoroughly all the measurements and bills prepared by your junior? Or do you sign it based on “tests checks” and ultimately on “Trust”?

2. Are you 100% sure that your billing engineer has not missed neither, any item nor any measurements?

ii. Cost of Billing:

1. If yes, what is the cost of billing engineer?

Billing Manpower cost + checking time cost + Time in terms of delay i.e. interest?

2. Do you many times avoid certain items in billing, only because entire item on that floor for that bill, is not completed? e.g. all walls on a floor are not completed. Does it not cause loss of interest? Does not affect liquidity?

iii. Efficiency in Billing:

1. Do you, or your engineers enjoy, preparing bills or writing MBs particularly – reinforcement schedules – i.e. bar bending schedule?

2. Can you simultaneously prepare;

  • Excess saving statement
  • List of extra items
  • Cumulative R/A Bills
  • As Built Drawings

While preparing bills? If yes, what is time & cost?

D. Economical Structural Design

Is steel the only criteria?

1. Do you believe that the structural design of a building is economical only because steel consumption per sq.ft. is less, i.e. say 2.50 kg / sq.ft. though pro-rata cost of concrete and formwork are more than cost of steel?

E. Data for Project Management / Timely Completion

1. Do you have exact data, so that you can efficiently and intelligently use softwares like:

  • Primevera
  • MS-Project etc.

2. Do you prepare funds flow statement, month wise based on materials to be purchased and labour to be employed considering lead period etc.?

3. Do you calculate no. of skilled / unskilled labour or no. of plant and machinery required on day zero?

4. Have you ever worked out exact quantities of many of following sundry materials on day zero?

  • No of screws, No. of Tees, elbows, bends, No. of Hardware etc.

F. Accuracy while Quoting

1. Are you always confident of rates quoted by you? Or are you under stress, fear, anxiety even though you have won the job?

2. Have you ever worked out profit / loss for each item separately & individually for any of the tender that you bid? If not, how do you control costs?

G. For Builders / EPC - Pre-Bid Contractors / Developers

1. When you bid on EPC / or lump sum area basis, do you work out 100% exact quantities and rates of each and every item from basic design drawings?

2. When you bid on EPC / lump sum area basis, are you 100% sure that you have not missed any item?

3. When you bid on EPC / or lump sum area basis, can you ever compare or do you have enough data and time to compare alternate designs? Methods? Materials?

4. When you bid on EPC / or lump sum area basis, even if you quote based on your past experience, do you have adequate data of BOQ, BOM, BOL etc., so that you can control your costs during actual execution?

5. If you are bidding on carpet area basis, are you able to work it out correctly?

H. Effect of Cost Escalation / Increase in Prices

1. Do you accurately work out the impact of “Increase in Price” – or cost escalation on Profit continuously during the progress of work?

I. Alternate Structural Design

1. Have you ever tried to compare exact cost of “Two alternatives” of Structural Designs based on cost of concrete, steel and formwork separately particularly when you have more than one building in repetition?

J. Miscellaneous

1. What is the cost of “Preparing As Built Drawings” to you?

A. Estimating Profits

1. Do you have such data, so that you can control costs and add value to building? Or do you really know where to economise based on cost data?

2. What is your recovery or reuse rate of formwork? Does it happen as per standard theories or it just gets wasted or become scrap early?

B. Cost Control

1. What is your recovery or reuse rate of formwork? Does it happen as per standard theories or it just gets wasted or become scrap early?

C. Billing

i. Accuracy:

1. Can you claim that, you have 100% checked the item rate bills of labour contractor?

ii. Cost of Billing:

1. Do you know the cost that you pay to us, gets compensated only in:

Can you reduce this time, by fast invoicing thereby improving liquidity and saving on interest cost?

iv. Efficiency in Billing:

1. Can you work out the quantity of extra items, on day zero?

D. Economical Structural Design

Is steel the only criteria?

1. While optimising structural design do you really know which elements are actually costing more i.e. column, beam, slab, walls etc., and relating it with safety of structure?

2. Do you have that data, whereby you can work out, that which constituents of RCC i.e. concrete, steel and formwork are governing cost? And that too for each element separately i.e. for column, wall, beam, slab etc.

E. Data for Project Management / Timely Completion

1. Have you ever estimated the loss or increase in cost, occurring due to mis management or inefficient management, only because you do not have correct and adequate data?

2. Does it not happen that small bottlenecks like petty items, materials, plant machinery or tools etc., delay the entire job of big value? Can you avoid it?

3. What is your take, that, if you are provided with all these datas in time and you get benefitted due to early flow of cash atleast by a month, you can complete your building early? How much time will it save? 5%, 10%, 20% or more? What would be its effect on profit?

4. Are you able to place order for all materials “in time”? Does not the delay happen due to lack of data?

5. Cannot you achieve better quality and timely completion, by asking your project team to focus on that, rather than focussing on labourious billing?

F. Accuracy while Quoting

1. Do you work out rate analysis of all items perfectly while bidding? What if, if you do not have any R/A software or even simple excel format?

G. For Builders / EPC - Pre-Bid Contractors / Developers

1. When you bid on EPC / or lump sum area basis, do you calculate or know “per sq.ft. cost” of each and every component of building per sq.ft.? i.e.

  • Cost of doors / windows – per sq.ft. of carpet area?
  • Cost of plaster – per sq.ft. of carpet area?
  • Cost of misc. items – per sq.ft. of carpet area? And so on

2. If you have area based contract, do you put a cost ceiling on each item of work?

3. When you award labour contract on lump sum area basis, do you or your labour contractor do adequate calculations for justification of per sq.ft. or lump sum labour rates?

4. Do you want to know the impact of costs if you marginally increase the height or area of a building while weighing options of alternate architectural designs?

5. Do you always scientifically work out cost of each flat based on pro-rata area analysis?

H. Effect of Cost Escalation / Increase in Prices

1. Do you forecast & calculate reduction in profit due to escalation, every quarter or at every R/A?

2. Can you work out and compare your rates with rates of previous year’s SOR, other states’ / districts’ SOR, CPWD’s SOR etc., instantly at a stroke of key?

I. Alternate Structural Design

1. Do you want to compare cost of “Two alternate” foundation designs accurately?

2. Do you want to check exactly, which of the two are economical i.e. R.C.C. Beam & Column structure or R.C.C. framed structure with full or few shear walls?

J. Quality of Architectural Design

1. If you are a builder, have you ever worked out:

  • Carpet area efficiency
  • Natural ventilation efficiency

    To judge the quality of architectural design
