Templates Built on Years of Industry
Experience, Best Practice and Refinement!

The real power of RIB Candy lies in First Principles Estimating which is a key method used to build our Master Libraries. Bill items are priced using the power of worksheets in Candy and are built up to include various components such as labour, plant, material, subcontractors and supervision, with production and wastage factors built in. These all form the basis of your organisation’s competitive advantage and therefore form the basis of your Candy Master Library.
