ADDA Estimate

ADDA Estimate is the only tool in market that can help you estimate your rebar weights and requirements.
Built by rebar detailers for rebar detailers, ADDA Estimate will take any profile and provide a reinforcement estimate, giving you more accuracy during tender or whenever you need rebar estimation.
Simple and very quick to use, ADDA Estimate can calculate weights for different standards, and inform subsequent 2D or 3D modeling and save you time and costs in creating estimates on your next project.

ADDA Projects & Articles

Find out about some of the simple and complex global projects where ADDA has made a difference.

The six-head nuclear station at Avenmouth Port in the UK is one of the most complex concrete structures ever constructed in the UK. The highly resilient build required more than 155,000 steel bars to support a complicated cooling system, two nuclear reactors and safety designs that included considerations of a 1 in 10,000 seismic event.

Circular reinforcing pattern presented significant challenges for manufacture and assembly of petroleum storage tanks. Prepared 2D and 3D concepts to help design engineers visualise the reinforcement layout, reduce waste, detect potential steel clashes, and produce detailed bar bending schedule and site marking plans.

Traditional in-situ formwork for a 60-level residential tower is slow. Identified time and cost savings in the early design stage by prefabricating 75 steel reinforced columns weighing 4.5 tonnes each.

As modern building designs have become more complex, making those designs a reality means buildability (also referred to as constructability) has become one of the largest challenges facing construction projects. To understand the extent of buildability issues in construction today,

Alan Jeffreys, Founder and CTO of ADDA Why rebar analytics could be the answer to mega project cost blowouts. With talk of global recessions, and residential construction feeling the impact of the economic downturns, it’s easy to forget that there
