Why did techies and product creators aim to disrupt the construction business? We hear this a lot. It’s a valid question with a simple answer — we found a problem we were interested in solving.
My father built our house, allowing me to assist him when he added two more floors to the main building. He complained when the initial time and budget estimations went wrong. But I didn’t understand his frustration until I decided to get my house renovated, and both the budget and timeline exceeded 40% — We wondered how such delays affected larger projects if smaller projects like ours faced so many issues.
That’s when we realized that owners lose a lot of money when construction projects exceed budgets and timelines. We validated the problem by spending weeks on multiple construction sites and tried building technology to solve the problems. Making plenty of mistakes along the way, we’ve got some fantastic clients now and a long way to go. So excited!
