Subdivisions Database:

The Subdivision database is a loose interpretation of the Construction Specification’s Institute (CSI) Uniform System. The Uniform System divides specifications into four sections: Bidding, Forms, Conditions and Specifications. Specifications are broken down into 16 divisions. The EDGE provides systems that work with the following divisions: (1) Gen. Requirements, (3) Concrete, (4) Masonry, (5) Metals, (6) Carpentry, (7) Moisture Control, (8) Doors & Windows, and (9) Finishes.

In The EDGE a Subdivision can be identified by an 8 character Subdivision/User Code code i.e. 0#-#00-00, where # represents a numeric character (1 – 9).


Subdivision – an 8 character numeric ID that identifies with the Subdivision and User Code Databases (07-100-000 (Roofing) or 09-500-000 (Painting)).
Description – A description for the subdivision Fireproofing, Drywall , Acoustical.
Division – Select from the drop down menu the correct division.
Costing Code – Costing codes accumulate “historical” data eg. $/SF, $/CY, etc. they aid you with quick costing’s to see where the current bid stands in relation to previous similar bids.

The Subdivision database allows the estimator to create “additional” markups based on the subdivision.
When you use Subdivision Markups remember that ALL items in that subdivision will have the markup automatically applied every time that item is included in an estimate. This is the same Markup screen that appears of the Job Recap screen. There, you can adjust Markups on a job-by-job basis if necessary.

Tax Class – Select from the drop down menu the Tax Class that applies to this subdivision. There are a total of six Markups in Subdivision Properties dialog, they are: (1) Tax (Local, State, Federal),(2,3,4) Markup 2, 3 and 4 (user defined markups), (5) Overhead, (6) Profit. There is a check box next to Markup 4, Overhead and Profit. If checked then these three markups are automatically applied to ALL tax classes.

Profit Display Method
– Chose from the drop down the type of profit to be applied.

When finished click OK. The dialog closes and you are returned to the database screen.
