It’s About Time

about us

It shouldn't be this hard. Technology has come so far beyond what construction bid management tools today are offering. General contractors should never have to spend another minute updating subcontractor contact databases. Subcontractors should never have to log in twice to see work in progress from two different GCs. And no one should
 be paying to do things we used to do in email.

Why? Because technology is capable of it. Commercial construction deserves it. And when it works, it pays off for building owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and their vendors. Everyone saves time. And that matters.

BuildingConnected is a construction communication platform with a refreshingly different approach. It's ridiculously easy to use. It's free to find, communicate, and share documents with GCs and subcontractors securely. Its analytics help everyone get smarter every time they work together. And you never have to update a contact database again. It's about time.

Our dedicated team combines experience in both construction and software development to simplify the way businesses communicate in commercial construction.
