Cordell Residential Valuer is an expert system that prompts users to provide a broad range of general information about a residential building and then interprets this information to produce a dynamic elemental cost model of the building.
The system references Reed Construction Data's extensive building cost databases developed over the past 35 years, to provide the user with an up-to-the-minute total building replacement cost estimate report.
The process starts with the user being asked a series of simple questions, these questions include:-
How many bathrooms does the building have?
How many separate toilets?
How many kitchens and laundries does the building have?
Does the building have any of the following structures?
Number of garages
Number of carports
Number of driveways
Number of verandahs
Number of pergolas
Does the building have any of these internal features?
Garage door opener
Smoke detection system
Solar hot water system
Video door answering system
