On September 15th, 2022, over some coffee, tea and pancakes the entire CadMakers team celebrated the 2-year anniversary of the cmBuilder.io public launch! The focus of the event was around the engaging roundtable discussion on all things construction technology from a panel of industry trailblazers from all over the world.
Speaking on this evolution and the elimination of previous preconstruction woes, Jim Pritchett, Sr. Superintendent, JTM Construction, touched on the need for efficiency in data processing whilst navigating through these preconstruction plans electronically. The attention to detail on the Site Plan turns a basic napkin sketch into a 3D/4D model simulation that can be presented to clients and general stakeholders within framed milestones and multiple scenarios. The cmBuilder interface encompasses markups that detail phases of site logistics during the pursuit phase and proposals, hence, truly bringing preconstruction plans to life.
The latest cmBuilder.io panel event takes on a “Super” approach by welcoming the vast industry knowledge of three superintendents with experience levels that spans over 80 years combined. The “Super” Hour as it was fittingly dubbed, saw the virtual presence of Jim Pritchett: Sr. Superintendent, JTM Construction; Walter Payne: Sr. Superintendent, Syncra Construction; and Tyler Brown: General Superintendent, Smith Bros. and Wilson (BC) Ltd with the panel moderated by our Co-Founder & CEO Javier Glatt.
Our latest user webinar focuses on the practicality of the preconstruction burden on general contractors and construction managers. In this scope, contractors are left to navigate outdated and inefficient technology for site logistics whilst managing the risk associated with site logistics planning costs. Tools available to contractors in the market are often too complex and expensive to adequately fit the scale of the preconstruction phase.
As part of DigiConstruct Week, we organized an internal contest - CadMakers' Next Top Model and the challenge at hand was to create the best site logistics simulation using only an imported BIM and all provided tools/catalogs/features inside cmBuilder.io. Watch the winning presentations here!
