If you're new to BuildingConnected, we're a leading preconstruction solution connecting owners, general contractors and subcontractors to streamline the bid and risk management process. We've built the largest construction network in North America with hundreds of thousands of contractors using the platform daily. More builders choose us to send invitations to bid, qualify vendors, and track opportunities than any other software solution in the industry. BuildingConnected currently provides three products: • BC Pro helps general contractors and owners easily find and qualify subcontractors, send custom bid invites, and streamline communication. • TradeTapp offers general contractors the most advanced subcontractor risk analysis tool on the market with automated subcontractor qualification, analysis, and custom risk reduction recommendations. • Bid Board Pro helps subcontractors win more work by enabling them to track bid invites, stay ahead of deadlines, and get key analytics—all from one place. Our preconstruction solution is built on the BuildingConnected Network, connecting over 700,000 construction professionals. Unlike other databases that are static with inaccurate and inconsistent information, our network is crowdsourced and updated in real time to provide the only source of truth for the entire construction industry. We're excited to add bid management, risk analysis, and the BuildingConnected network to Autodesk's construction portfolio. Over 100 of the ENR 400 Contractors use BuildingConnected for their bid and risk management solution, including Turner Construction, McCarthy, Mortenson, StructureTone, Skanska, Clark Construction, Ryan Companies and AECOM. Here's what they have to say about it: "Implementation of BuildingConnected supports our effort to increase efficiency for Turner, our contractors and our clients." – Mike Bruskin, Director of Procurement at Turner Construction "BuildingConnected provides a streamlined bid management process that takes the pressure off the estimating team." – Stephen Fontana, Estimator at Holt Construction "With BuildingConnected, you can get the information and documentation to the subcontractors in a matter of minutes." – Maggie Coppa, Estimator at Shamut Construction "We no longer have to cold call hundreds of subcontractors to find out whether they're submitting bids." – Stanley Abellard, Estimator at Plaza Construction "No internal database management; emails and phone numbers actually work. You can train someone in 5 minutes; just hit the orange button." – Kyle Bonde, Lead Estimator at Hensel Phelps Want to see why GCs and subs love BuildingConnected?
