Build Aviator has extended a range of help and financial support to tradespeople during the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a degree of uncertainty for the majority of us, whether its financial, employment, security or our health, we have all faced our own unique battles, all in the hope we come out of this fighting and strong.

Kindness: We rise by lifting others

Among the doom and gloom, it has been heart-warming to see generous acts of kindness around the globe as people and businesses have helped each other out: applauding our NHS, free access to educational sites for homeschooling, free PE lessons, the rapid changes to technology trends, the mass donations to the NHS and so on.

How we have helped

Build Aviator knew that trades would be facing a great deal of uncertainty during this time. The team wanted to make sure they could offer help and financial support to assist our customers through this difficult time.

We have spoken to hundreds of you to check on how you were getting on. We heard from those of you whose jobs had been pulled because their clients were uncertain of the economic climate; we heard from those of you who were unsure if they’d get any new enquiries to price; we also heard about those of you who wanted to get on top of your paperwork ready for when sites opened; and from all those conversations, if you did get some enquiries, you wanted to be sure on submitting an accurate price and to be in with the best chance of winning the work. So we set out to help…

  1. Free material order take-offs

From the outset, we decided to keep our estimating team going and to offer a basic version of our service completely free of charge.

Hundreds of you took advantage of our free estimating service that provided you with a full Bill of Quantities for the job. Whether you’re on a project that has already started or if it was a new enquiry, you sent us the plans and we provided you with a full breakdown of materials that would be required to undertake that project to either help you with the ordering or to help you produce a quote for your client.

This offer has been extended twice and is now running until the end of August.

  1. 50% discount on full quotations

For our full service, we offered 50% discount as we wanted to help you to win the work that does come in. The full pricing service meant the client quotation was written too, along with all the client reports and builder reports. Hundreds more of you took us up on this offer too. We extended the closing date from the end of May to end of June, and have now decided to extend the offer to the end of August so as many of you can benefit from this help.

  1. Material ordering

During the unprecedented times of our merchant branches being closed and the unknown date of branches reopening, we jumped on board to help you with pre-ordering your materials ready for when merchant doors reopened.

A completely new business model that is now here to stay, not only can we assist with estimating for your project but also we can help you project manage with ordering materials on site too.

  1. LITE Office: Software at reduced cost

An increased amount of you purchased LITE Office during the pandemic. Spending time in lockdown pricing up your jobs from the comfort of your home, with the aid of our estimating software and regional pricing tools.
