How does it work?

We’ve summarised the NCC into simple, interactive graphics. Building Codes, version and Class references are all included, as well as best practices and risk information that you won’t find elsewhere. Stop wasting your time researching Codes, interpreting confusing rules and communicating requirements using words. Find, Zoom and Share the essential information you need.

A picture tells 1,000 words.

Humans are hard wired to understand images far quicker than blocks of text. Tools™ transforms as much as 30 pages of text, tables and figures into a single, informative graphic.

Why sift through piles of confusing, disorganised rules and regulations when you can just use Tools™?

About us.

Jerry Tyrrell’s brainchild, Tools™ was born after decades of frustration, witnessing the same easily avoidable mistakes being made.

Knowledge is the solution to our industry’s quality crisis. Millions of wonderful ancient buildings were built by proud designers and craftsmen using age old best practice and wisdom. They didn’t need piles of confusing rules and regulations.

Tools™ unlocks construction knowledge and simplifies building compliance.

Customer Stories.

Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you guys know that your program Tools is getting better and better. I am starting to use It more in my design and documentation of my projects and it gives me the direct answers I need instead of deciphering the NCC always.

Keep up the great work and looking forward to more future updates.

This is how quick you get information. It’s not just for yourself. This is to make sure that the end product is proper.

I have had the pleasure of being introduced to your app because I am a member of the BDAA.
I am thoroughly impressed with what you have accomplished.
I have over 35 years continuous experience in the Engineering, Architecture and developer fields and this app is fantastic.
I have already forwarded your app details to many colleagues and commercial builders.
