About Kubla Cubed

Kubla Cubed is an on-premise earthwork estimation solution designed for construction companies of all sizes. It offers project takeoff and estimation and is compatible with Windows operating systems.

New levels can then be added into phases using different earthwork elements such as feature surface, platform and slopes. The software allows users to import data directly from a CAD or PDF file to generate new ground levels. The software then calculates the volume of the earthwork and which can then be used in project estimates. With customized reporting and dashboards, users can export earthwork estimates to create estimati...

From one professional to another...

Their customer service is as impressive as the program itself. I talked with a woman named [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] about an issue I was having accessing the program due to a broken laptop (gotta love dogs) and she was extremely polite and helpful throughout the duration of our phone call. Within five minutes of talking I had my software key ready to activate on my new computer and I was on my way. Whether you are using the most expensive program on the market or still doing project take-offs with a digitizer and paper, I suggest giving these guys a try. I can guarantee they will be the next big name in earthwork take-offs if they continue the way they are going.

Pros

Honestly, I purchased Kubla because it was much cheaper than any of the competition and I didn't have a lot of expendable income when I started this business. That being said, I will probably remain a lifelong customer despite having used and purchased other more expensive software since we expanded. The 3D image quality is phenomenal, everything about the program is easy to understand and use regardless of your experience level with this type of software, and best of all, it allows me to create 3D visuals of our projects that everyone on the team can understand. I regularly show my operators and laborers step by step project illustrations using the program before we get into the prints, and I often use them myself for quick references in the field.

Cons

I don't dislike the program. The ability to transmute elevation lines for quick placement and the ability to input strata layers and material information would be nice, but they regularly update the program so I'm sure that will be coming soon enough. The second that happens, this will become the only software I use for earthwork. 100%

Outstanding software and support

The volumetric calculations and design contour plans are the most useful aspects of the software.

Pros

The software seems to have been designed specifically for my business. Easy to use and understand. Affordable and very powerful.

Cons

Not much at all. I suppose the 3D imaging could be improved a little. The facility to prepare sections would be useful.

Fantastic support provided by [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], so patient and helpful, once set up gives certainty where guesswork previously prevailed, quick flexible and highly competitive.

The best earthworks estimating software on the market

I experimented with several bulk excavation / cut and fill programs before finding this and it is the best I have come across. My overall experience is very positive and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Pros

Clear layout and easy to use Good features Regular updates Excellent customer support Good value for money

Cons

When new versions of the software are released they often have bugs which require fixing - more testing before release would be beneficial

Outstanding cut and fill software

Pros

- Easy to understand and use after a day or two practice (much easier to follow than my previous cut and fill software) - Features to cover all necessary scenarios: roads, houses, retaining walls, etc - Regular product updates - Good customer support - Competitively priced

Cons

- Very little negative to say except some annoying glitches when a new version is released, however these are soon rectified
