How FATHOM can help you

FATHOM is a cloud-based software, so as default your data will be stored online, however, if you wish, you can take this offline.

One of FATHOMs main features is that it can help you quantify not only the extra costs that come with building in a more environmentally friendly way, but it takes into account the additional benefits that a ‘greener’ home provides both the owner and the organisation.

Organisations have used FATHOM to identify the optimum build solution for a particular development, and use the data produced to support a business case wether that be for additional funding or within your organisation. This was the way that FATHOM was utilised for the business case that won Constructing Excellence awards.

FATHOM isn’t just to be used for new builds, you can use it to analyse options of your ageing stock, and identify the best value for money method of handling these properties.

With FATHOM, you can identify everything from an entire development site to a individual asset such as a washing machine, ensuring you are achieving maximum value for money across your assets.

As part of a FATHOM licence you get access to our experts who can help troubleshoot any issues, or advise you on how to get the best out of FATHOM
