BuilderMT, Sales Simplicity, and CG Visions Form Alliance with ITW Building Components Group

Award-Winning Technology Companies Bring BIM-Driven Design, Estimating, and Collaboration System to Custom/Production Homebuilders

LAKEWOOD, Colo.--()--BuilderMT, North America’s best-selling construction workflow software solution provider, today announced that it has formed a new alliance with Sales Simplicity, CG Visions, and ITW Building Components Group. The purpose of the alliance is to offer a complete BIM-driven solution and integrated construction workflow that promotes better collaboration in residential construction. News of the alliance follows ITW Building Components Group’s IBS 2012 announcement that it has successfully demonstrated the INSTINCT - Residential Design System, which BuilderMT, Sales Simplicity, and CG Visions have all linked to digitally.

Through this alliance, its members will engage builder customers in a design-and-build process that uses digital workflows and 3D BIM models that enable construction professionals to collaborate on lean, green, and sustainable design practices, while delivering quality homes with accurate material estimates, building component designs, and predictable profit. The level of supreme accuracy offered by these allied systems is delivered by linking 3D BIM models with “INSTINCT-enabled” software from Sales Simplicity, BuilderMT, CG Visions, and ITW BCG programs, which include VisionREZ, hsbCAD, VIEW, intelliVIEW, and IntelliBuild.

“Builders who have thrived over the last year have done so for two principle reasons,” said Tom Gebes, BuilderMT’s president. “First, they have moved to a custom or semi-custom sales model, which often requires a proliferation of model options to accommodate the wishes of even the most demanding home buyer. Second, these successful builders have made profit margins on actual operations, not on speculation. They know that even as the homes are optioned-out up to the very last minute, it is crucial that they maintain extremely tight cost control over every element in the home. Our new alliance helps builders to manage projects, production and profits with innovative software connections that track the true cost of all options, while easily handling the exact production details of every lot-specific customer choice, including custom truss and wall component designs.”

“BuilderMT is thrilled to be working with these premier consulting and technology companies to deliver the best BIM–driven collaboration system for residential building professionals,” Gebes added.
