Coming to the Rescue
All good stories start at the beginning, so let’s rewind to 2012 when our Founder & CEO, Dustin DeVan, quit his job. Dustin spent six years working for General Contractors like Bechtel, Rudolph & Sletten and XL Construction, and while he loved his job, he was frustrated with the incredibly disorganized communication that took place during the bidding process. He became convinced that there was a better way to save the industry time by creating a more streamlined tool for bid management.
In March of 2012, Dustin set off on his mission, but first, he needed to find at a technical CoFounder that shared his vision. Here is where our heroic CoFounder & CTO, Jesse Pedersen, entered the picture. Jesse and Dustin met while at UC Davis but it was his strong technical background, working as a Web Developer, Engineer, and Technical CoFounder, that made him the perfect partner for Dustin in their quest towards efficiency.
In March of 2013, the dynamic duo began to build out what is now the most comprehensive bid management tool on the market. Many personal sacrifices had to be made over the years but both Dustin and Jesse were driven by the core ideas that:
- Bid management shouldn’t be so hard
- Communication should be free, and
- Updating a contact database is an unnecessary hassle
Despite operating in a private beta, BuildingConnected is already used by over 200 General Contractors across the country including powerhouses like Turner Construction, McCarthy and Skanska. We are now exiting private beta and are thrilled to be available to the entire commercial construction community! In addition to our awesome free services, we are releasing BC Pro which includes solutions unlike anything else on the market.
