Every contractor has unique preferences when estimating their projects. The right database is critical in filling those needs. Some contractors self-perform work and purchase materials while others subcontract work to others.  Some build a variety of projects while others specialize.  Instead of adapting to a boiler-plate, “one-size-fits-all” database, the Advanced Assembly Database (AAD) allow contractors to configure their database by selecting what they need from an “a la carte” menu.
