The Project Structure consists of:

  • Parts

  • Elements

  • User Reference

  • User Defined Tags (x3)

  • Sub Contract Packages

Standard and User-defined Templates means setting up the Project Structure can be done in a matter of minutes and provide consistency across projects.

Whilst the Project Structure is normally set up at the start of a Project it can be added to or amended at any time.

Comprehensive Standard Libraries of Descriptions...


Masterbill Elite can be supplied with a number of Standard Libraries including:


  • SMM7

  • NRM1

  • NRM2
