We’re creating a connected and efficient residential construction industry to provide more affordable housing for future generations.
In 2019, BuiltGrid founders envisioned an end-to-end building management platform that would help more people live in affordable homes. Here are the two goals that drive the BuiltGrid team.
Build more homes and reduce the housing deficit
In past years the global residential construction supply chain has experienced supply shortages and materials increases of 40%+. How are we to reduce the growing housing deficit (740k in Australia) if some of the core building processes are dysfunctional?
BuiltGrid is seeking to solve inherent procurement problems through collaboration, visibility and automation which will save time, improve operating margins and allow builders to construct more homes.
Drive efficiency to make homes more affordable
While construction is one of the largest industries, it is also one of the most inefficient. Many problems are caused by a disconnected supply chain so we’ve redesigned housing procurement and used some software technology to streamline the process.
We know we make work easier for builders and suppliers, saving them weeks on every project. These savings are inevitably passed onto consumers, reducing the cost of home ownership.
Our values guide our business, product development, and brand. As BuiltGrid continues to evolve and grow, these values will always remain constant.
Openness is a core value for us. We feel it's best to be direct. We are open and believe that sharing ideas opens new opportunities and allows us to think differently.
Our customer's perspective is our top priority. As builders and their suppliers are both customers for us, we are attentive to their varying needs and supporting tens of thousands of business processes. If your builder or supplier doesn't want to improve their business process, they are probably not a good partner for the future.
We’re driven by innovation, which means we’re constantly testing our assumptions.. Through iteration, we aim to take things that work well and improve upon them in unexpected ways. Learning fast gets us to innovation faster.
While we’re serious about improving the residential construction supply chain, we spend a lot of time at work. The less time it feels like work, the better for our team. We are constantly adapting as a team to work together and bring positive change to the industry.
BuiltGrid founders have multi-industry and multi-disciplinary experience that brings a differentiated approach to construction industry challenges. Our work in maximising process efficiencies will improve housing affordability for future generations. We're attracting talented team members that share our vision.
