Residential construction is a complicated industry, with many moving parts. After working in the industry for more than two decades, the BuiltGrid founders are uniting builders and suppliers to improve efficiencies and remove layers of cost.
Builders and suppliers working
together to remove layers of cost
The BuiltGrid network introduces new levels of collaboration, visibility and automation to every build site. Our team thrives on providing value to all market participants and establish a sustainable residential construction industry.
Every project is different. Builders and suppliers working closely is vital to delivering a successful project. A clear structure across all trades, services and materials leads to greater innovation and efficient process, which ensures everyone reaches their goals. Using this approach will help us develop a sustainable residential construction industry.
With a view of every project and updated schedules, builders help trades, services and material suppliers to be planned and prepared.
BuiltGrid platform visibility enhances information sharing, improves inventory demand planning and resource management for the entire industry.
We’ve built an easy-to-use network that reduces office work and allows builders and suppliers to focus their time where it is most valuable. Using BuiltGrid for purchasing, job workflow and administration will strengthen your partnerships while stripping operational expenses.
Integrated Networked Procurement
Stage 1: Procurement Network
This first stage involved designing and establishing the network and base infrastructure before developing end user functionality. Builders can now list their committed projects, share docs, select jobs, inclusions and invite suppliers from our every-expanding network of materials, trade and services network. Suppliers setup their profile, jobs, regions, services, terms and team to support builder engagement. Once quotes are received, builders can review detailed comparisons, accept a quote and move to exchanging digital contracts with the chosen supplier or trade.
App integration: Estimation apps can share bills of material into BuiltGrid projects.
Stage 2 – Job Workflow
Once jobs are in contract, they are placed into a shared, real time schedule that is shared with all contracted suppliers and trades. Each of the 300+ jobs have varied event-driven tasks that integrate with the needs of the supplier and builder. For example, some jobs have complex selection, measure, manufacturing, installation and QA cycles. The BuiltGrid network automates business processes so that jobs are on time and budget.
App integration: Job management app users will be able to take action on BuiltGrid events.
Stage 3 – Finance & Admin
The BuiltGrid network will provide an end-to-end transactional and activity audit, ensuring builders are invoiced correctly and suppliers get paid without delay. This phase of BuiltGrid network development will provide seamless integration of compliance, insurance and accounting systems – all at cost-code level.
App integration: Required data will be available to accounting and building management systems.
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.
