Zuuse to acquire GCPay, a leading North American provider of construction payment applications software

Melbourne, Australia, 2018-Aug-15 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — Zuuse has entered into an agreement to acquire GCPay.com (GCPay), a leading North American provider of cloud collaboration software aimed at streamlining the payment applications process in the building and construction industry.

The acquisition will provide Zuuse with a critical toehold in its largest global market, with almost 40,000 users of the software platform in the USA, including General Contractors, Owners, Developers, Financial Institutions, Government Agencies, Engineering and Architectural Firms, and Subcontractors.

Together with complementing its Payapps cloud collaboration platform in the APAC and EMEA markets, GCPay will help strengthen the Zuuse global product portfolio in the building and construction software sectors.

The GCPay software solution is consistently aligned to the Zuuse strategy and customer base, offering a strong standalone solution as well as integrations with Sage and Viewpoint construction ERP systems, and aligning with other partners.

Zuuse CEO, Jason Lilienstein, said, “This is an exciting acquisition for Zuuse and brings us a major step closer towards becoming a leading global provider of construction and building operations software. The integration of GCPay’s market leading technology will consolidate our position as an industry leader in cloud collaboration payment applications software to the global construction industry, together with further establishing our presence as a leading disruptor in the broader, high-growth AECO (Architecture – Engineering – Construction – Owner Operations) market.”

Systems and processes in the AECO sector are still largely fragmented, manual or paper based, and these inefficiencies result in customers losing time, money, information and resources. Lilienstein, added, “Today’s announcement further exemplifies the customer-centricity and the power of Zuuse, in providing construction and building operations software solutions for our customers which tackle these inefficiencies head-on, working with everything from day to day operational issueson the construction and building site, to long-term strategic asset and facility management issues.”

GCPay COO, Daniel Brunelli, said, “The coming together of our companies is an excellent outcome for all of our stakeholders and most importantly for ourcustomers. The combination of our businesses provides both parties with the expertise, scale and reach needed to provide our customers what they need, when they need it, anywhere in the world.

As a part of the broader Zuuse business, GCPay will be better equipped and resourced to deliver greater value to customers, including extending our existing product functionality as well as broadening our product offering to better fulfil the evolving needs of the growing construction industry. We are tremendously excited by the prospect of what Zuuse and GCPay can achieve together, and I look forward to sharing these benefits with our customers.”

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to be completed in the third quarter of calendar year 2018.

Construction Payment Startup CEO Honored at BuiltWorlds’ Mavericks Awards

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, 2018-Apr-14 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — Steve Wightman, Founder and CEO of disruptive construction payment technology company, BuildPay, has been chosen as part of BuiltWorlds’ first-ever Mavericks Report: “25 Pioneers Who’ve Transformed The Built Industry,” a recognition of the movers and shakers who are shaping the future of AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) and RE (real estate) industries.

BuiltWorlds is a global online resource for players in the AEC/RE fields.

The prestigious award puts Wightman alongside some of the top disrupters in the industry, including: Elon Musk, Founder of Tesla, Adam Neumann of WeWork and Michael Marks of Katerra, among others.

“Maverick is a word I’ve not heard appreciated in a long time. I’m humbled to be part of such a hard-hitting list,” said Wightman.

BuildPay is a construction payment platform built to directly combat the construction industries’ chronic cash-flow issues and notorious payment chaos. The online platform was built in 2017 and began deploying to construction funding institutions recently, but the solution had been evolving and refining since Hurricane Andrew in 1992 when Wightman began proving there was a better way to build, supported by smarter payment. Costs dropped and work accelerated.

“Nobody is doing construction payment right, as evidenced by our industry having the longest accounts receivable and least access to working capital of any segment worldwide,” said Wightman. “Payment is the one thing that all construction has in common and is the lifeblood of projects, so that’s the only thing we focused on solving.”

The Rose receives 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award from the Urban Land Institute

Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2016-Nov-04 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — PLACE is pleased to announce that The Rose and three sister developments at Portland and Franklin Avenues (South Quarter) in Minneapolis were selected by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing as the winner of the 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. This annual award honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people with a range of incomes. Representing the completion of South Quarter, The Rose offers 43 market rate apartments and 47 income-restricted affordable apartments in profoundly sustainable buildings that have neither furnaces nor conventional air conditioning equipment.

In 2010, affordable housing developer Aeon, in partnership with Hope Community, selected PLACE by competition to add specialized development consultant capacity as Sustainability Champion for the last phase of South Quarter. Aeon wanted the final buildings to be the best performing buildings of their kind in the country, on an affordable housing budget. A 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to public benefit, PLACE provided disruptive environmental design analysis, assisted in assembling and facilitating a world-class collaborative design and construction team, deepened community engagement, and refined financial modeling in furtherance of creating high-performance, healthy buildings for Aeon’s residents.

Minneapolis has the harshest climate of any large city in America. The biggest challenge for PLACE was to ensure that the team could deliver a building envelope capable of keeping residents cool in a scorching summer with high humidity and a frigid winter with temperatures plunging to minus thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Buildings in the U.S. are built each day to standards that cause them to consume 70% of America’s primary energy, with 52% of that energy going to heating and cooling. The Rose is 75% more energy efficient than local standards require, which also deepens affordability for residents; it represents PLACE’s most cutting edge restorative development work to date.

“This project is on the leading edge of workforce housing development and preservation,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners in Atlanta. “It has it all—mixed-income housing, environmental sustainability, long-term affordability, and long-term financing.”

“The efforts of Aeon and Hope Community, with their many public and private sector partners, prove that previously disinvested communities can point the way forward for mixed-income, environmentally sustainable redevelopment in our cities,” said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center.

Baton Rouge Based Roof Crafters Launches New CRM Software For Clients

CRM Product Launch from Roof Crafters

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Oct-12 — /EPR Network/ — Chuck Magee, construction professional and owner of Louisiana-based roofing company Roof Crafters, is proud to offer Louisiana clients more access and insight into the progress of their roofing projects.

baton-rouge-roofing-contractors

As the most technically advanced roofing contractor anywhere, Chuck Magee and Roof Crafters have taken full advantage of cloud technology and developed their own proprietary cloud-based software system. This intuitive, easy-to-use system is only available in Louisiana to Roof Crafters clients.

Utilizing SSA Store Share Access, Roof Crafter clients will be able to track and keep up with all aspects of their roofing and roof related jobs, including warranty information, shingle type, shingle color and when the roof was installed. Pictures at various stages of the project are also provided.

Keeping this information properly stored and easily accessible is also vitally important for many clients that are having roof repairs performed due to damage from weather or other accidents. The portal makes it easy for clients to retrieve information for insurance purposes, or even if they wish to sell their house a number of years later and want to provide the buyers with the correct information about the roofing materials.

Working in construction for over two decades, Chuck Magee realized that a client-access system such as the one developed by Roof Crafters was sorely needed in the industry. Being able to access information at their leisure helps clients feel better about their projects and provides them with a more comprehensive, detailed record.

As a trusted expert in the industry, it was especially important to Chuck that his clients could get as much assistance and information as they needed when they needed it. He states that he is “especially excited to launch this new software for Roof Crafters clients to stay up to date on their roofing projects.”

Chuck knows that every roofing job is different, and having completed a re-roofing of his own home, he has firsthand experience of the challenges and inconveniences these projects can cause for his clients. This makes him a much more understanding and sympathetic consultant for those in the middle of a difficult roofing project, and it is why he thinks that the CRM product developed by Roof Crafters will be such a benefit to the residents of Louisiana.

Roof Crafters Gives Away New Roof

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Jun-22 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

Roof-Crafters-Client baton rouge-450x297

After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

The project at White’s house changed when Vaughn, an Owens-Corning Platinum Contractor, contacted Magee, another Platinum Preferred installer with Owens Corning, to see if Magee had a “backup crew” available in case inclement weather or other difficulties forced the Tulsa team to return home before the project was complete. Being community minded Roof Crafters gives away new roof by providing all the labor to install the roofing system.

“[Magee] said, ‘Hey, I’ve got a crew that will do the whole thing,’” Vaughn said. Materials were donated by ABC Supply, a nationwide supplier.

White’s one-story home was elevated after the storm, but the roof was not replaced at the time. White has lived in the 50-year old house for 15 years.

Team coordinator Dr. Amy Emerson said the team wanted to help White because she gives so much to others.

“She is an incredible lady who uses her vacation time each year to cook two hot meals for children in the Hollygrove neighborhood, who attend a week-long summer camp,” Emerson said. “It’s fun to see all kinds of people come together to do this project.”

Other activities held in conjunction with the team’s visit included a “Pete the Cat” literacy event, based on the popular children’s series books by Eric Litwin. Free books were provided for children that attended. The churches are co-led by ministers Charles Marsalis and Kirk Garrison.

While the long-standing partnership with the Oklahoma team has made them “family,” White said the focus of the week was on the children and not the adults workers. “Even though it’s just for a few days, the children are getting something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.”

Besh Is Redesigning The Cabinet Industry

Raleigh, NC, March 21, 2016 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — As landfills continue to be the dumping grounds for out-of-date kitchen cabinets, besh logoone innovative cabinet start-up out of Raleigh, North Carolina provides a solution that allows homeowners, designers and housing developers to update kitchens while keeping more trees in the forests and less waste in the dumps.

Besh creates eco-friendly cabinets that feature a swappable-front system and a sleek, modern design. By using industrial-grade engineered wood made with 100% wood waste, low VOC finishes and Besh’s frameless (euro-style) system, you don’t have to sacrifice Mother Nature’s resources for new kitchen cabinets. And since Besh cabinets are proudly made in the USA, the reduced shipping distance also contributes to a smaller carbon footprint.

Founder and designer Becky Shankle created Besh to be a natural solution for people who want modern kitchen cabinets — especially if they want something environmentally friendly and easily changeable in the future.

“People want options. They want to be able to evolve their kitchen. However, we only have one planet, and we must take care of it,” says Shankle.

With Besh, you install the backbone of the cabinet system and choose from countless customizable options like doors, drawer fronts, and robust, durable soft closing hardware to create your own unique design. Since the backbone is modular and always stays in place, you can give your kitchen a whole new look by ordering new doors and drawer fronts. You can even send the old ones back to Besh to be refurbished and reused.

While many companies in the cabinet industry support the old-fashioned “discard and replace” approach, Shankle believes less is more. “My goal is to sell people as few Besh cabinet systems as possible,” she states. “Then when they want to update we can just replace the doors and drawer fronts. It’s better for the environment and better for people’s wallets.” While Besh cabinets are hearty and built to last much longer than the cheap-overseas cabinets, they’re also more budget friendly than the high-end imported options.

After two successful years in the North Carolina market, Besh recently launched a new website www.bestcabinets.com and is lining up regional distribution channels as a precursor to a broader national rollout.

The Besh website was designed by Code18 Interactive (www.code18.com), a digital agency based in NYC.

The Metropolitan Council approves a $2M grant to fund a landmark, transit-oriented development in the heart of St. Louis Park, Minnesota

St. Louis Park, MN, December 11, 2015 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — On December 9, 2015 and after overwhelming enthusiasm and support from a rigorous application and vetting process, the Metropolitan Council approved funding for PLACE’s St. Louis Park Community. The Council approved 2 million dollars in funding from its Livable Communities Account for a Transit-Oriented Development (LCA-TOD) grant after the proposed project demonstrated a breakthrough approach to meeting housing and economic development needs in the Twin Cities. The funds will be used to help secure site acquisition at the former McGarvey Coffee property, pioneer alternative energy sources, and integrate stormwater improvement with infrastructure like green roofs and an urban forest.

A nonprofit called PLACE (Projects Linking Art, Community, and Environment) heads up the community endeavor in concert with the City of St. Louis Park, fellow eco-minded and socially conscious companies like Allianz Life, Stantec, Shaw-Lundquist, Lindquist & Vennum, MSR, LIFT, and Rachel Contracting that have invested in the project, other private partners, and public collaborators like Hennepin County. The community will elevate affordable living, design, and artistic culture in the city and will be located near the expected Green Line extension (Southwest Light Rail) Wooddale Station. The development’s potential positive impact is staggering, with healthy homes for 300 households across the income spectrum supported by a mobility hub, urban agriculture, live and work spaces, a hotel, and a renewable energy generation system that consumes food waste created by its inhabitants and surrounding neighbors.

Chris Velasco, PLACE’s Executive Director, observed, “I think this project will be of national significance for communities that want to effectively leverage their scarce resources.”

Ryan Kelley, City of St. Louis Park Planner, says, “The City of St. Louis Park is extremely proud to be the co-recipient with PLACE of the Met Council’s largest transit oriented development grant for a new sustainable community of regional significance.”

“PLACE is an excellent project, for the city and the region. Turning vacant, unused property into a community space with alternative energy features, that is connected to other uses, like transit, is just the kind of investment the Council wants to make toward a livable communities and a prosperous region” – Erin Heelan, TOD Grants Coordinator, Metropolitan Council Livable Communities.

Executive Director Velasco thanks the Metropolitan Council for its confidence and support on behalf of the entire team and the residents of St. Louis Park.
