Implementing RIB CostX® into classes:

To help them appreciate the ease of using estimating software, students are first taught manual methods of measurement using dimension papers and are then introduced to how it is implemented and conducted in RIB CostX®. Their coursework primarily involves the production of a bills of quantity (BoQ) with RIB CostX®.


Most of the students found the software to be quite interesting and easy to use.

Final thoughts:

With basic measurement ideas, a user can navigate using RIB CostX® with the greatest of ease.
