Construction App Cost Estimate

What is a construction app?

A construction application is a web or mobile application that enables users to find, bid on, and book construction projects. Construction apps usually include an interface for viewing available jobs as well as the ability to create a custom profile and apply for jobs. Construction apps have much in common with other mobile productivity apps, such as project management apps and calculator apps. Popular construction apps include Autodesk, ArchiCAD, and SketchUp. Examples of construction apps built with Crowdbotics:

What is the typical cost to build a construction app?

A construction app usually costs about $37,500 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $25,000 or as high as $50,000. A construction app with a low number of features (also known as a minimum viable product, or MVP) will be more affordable than an app that includes all intended functionality. For example, here are some previous construction app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

How long does it take to build a construction app?

A construction app usually takes 200 hours to build. However, a construction app can be built in as few as 67 hours, or in as many as 333 hours. The exact timeline mostly depends on how complicated your specific app is. As a general rule, it will take longer if you require highly custom designs, niche features, complex logic, or non-standard release platforms. For example, some previous construction apps build with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

How to successfully grow your construction application

A construction app is a location-based service that provides contractors with crew management tools and work scheduling software. The most successful construction apps allow companies to manage their crews, schedule work, track progress, and share important information with clients. These apps can grow by expanding into new verticals (such as plumbing or electrical), adding additional features (like social networking tools), and creating industry-specific apps that cater to different types of businesses.

Risks and challenges of building a construction application

Construction apps can be subject to legal and insurance risks related to workplace injury, worker compensation, and property damage. You will want to ensure that you have strong compliance procedures in place for workers on your project.
