New home construction with BuilderTrend
One of the first things we do when we complete the ‘contract’ phase of a new home is initiating a dashboard for our clients and our project managers in BuilderTrend. Unless our clients are immersed in new home construction every day by trade, one of the initial questions we get is, ‘What is BuilderTrend?’ so we thought it would be helpful to cover the topic in our blog.
What is BuilderTrend?
BuilderTrend is a cloud-based construction project management software. The platform works to seamlessly integrate the hundreds of aspects of your new home construction, allowing us to communicate with everyone involved in a new home build, including you! From day one, you’ll have access to construction documents, photos of the property, a schedule of everything from day 1 through walkthrough, and more. Let’s go through each of these areas in a little more detail.
A look at the ‘Owner View’
Your dashboard for your home looks something like the image we’ve inserted below. You can find things like your contract price, the most recent images, a preview of the upcoming schedule and notifications for anything you haven’t opened or addressed under the ‘What’s Happening’ header.
Important documents and project photos
Generally, upon setting up your BuilderTrend portal, we’ll upload important documents and a photo or two of the build site to kick things off. As your home project progresses, you’ll see updated images documenting our progress, keeping you in the loop from day 1.
Your project schedule
One of the most amazing features of BuilderTrend is the ability to update the build schedule so that you’re fully informed, in real time. Adjustments can be made in real-time so that everyone involved in your home project is on the same page, including you.
