Embracing Digital Costing: Enhancing Efficiency and Cost Savings at CitraLake Villa | Ciputra Development

Ciputra Development Tbk., a distinguished business conglomerate with a remarkable track record, embarked on an ambitious project, CitraLake Villa. This luxurious property development, consisting of 4 floors and covering an impressive floor area of 9,940 sqm, was set to become a symbol of excellence and innovation in the industry.


The Challenges

The CitraLake Villa project encountered its fair share of challenges. With numerous Bill of Quantity (BoQ) items, maintaining accuracy in calculations proved daunting and error-prone. Additionally, the show unit requirements underwent constant changes and recalculation, posing significant obstacles for the team. Embracing modern technology, particularly adopting digital solutions, was met with resistance from the QS team, making the shift to digitalisation a demanding task.

To overcome these challenges, Ciputra turned to the Cubicost TAS solution. This decision marked a turning point in their journey towards enhanced efficiency and precision.

The Benefits

  • BOQ-making Duration Efficiency
    By implementing digital costing, the BOQ-making process was streamlined, reducing the duration from 7 days to a mere 2 days. This remarkable decrease of 71% in time spent on BOQ-making significantly accelerated project progress and efficiency.

  • Preventing Additional Works and Cost Overruns
    Digital costing prevented additional works and cost overruns caused by missing bill items or miscalculations. At CitraLake Villa, this resulted in an impressive cost savings of IDR 20 million per housing unit, amounting to a total of IDR 560 million for all 28 units.

  • Cost Efficiency and Sustainability
    Adopting digital costing eliminated the need for printing drawings and manual take-off tools, resulting in direct savings of IDR 200,000. This eco-friendly approach not only contributed to cost efficiency but also reflected Ciputra's commitment to sustainability.
