Construction Project Management


BuildTools is a web-based construction management platform, accessible from anywhere. The system serves as a hub for anyone involved in the construction or remodeling of a home.

About the project

BracketMedia and BuildTools Founder Sven Gustafson have a long and successful history, having worked on over 15 web projects together over the course of the last 8 years.

When he developed the original Buildtools platform in 2010, our team created the website for it. Six years later, Sven decided to give the system a complete makeover, this time asking if the BracketMedia team could not just make a new site, but to take over as the new production team and make the BuildTools platform great again. As usual, we welcomed the challenge.

The Challenge

In what is our biggest software development project to date, we assembled a 6 person team to work daily in our effort to completely rebuild the new BuildTools platform using Laravel. Our team needed to study the ins and outs of the old system while learning the intricacies of the construction process in order to transform the old system into something more intuitive for it's users and easy on the eyes.

This project is still ongoing, but it is nearing its end and is expected to launch early 2018.

I have worked with Andy on many (15-20) projects over the last 8 years. He has always exceeded my expectations and delivered on his commitments, and provided a great value. I have recommended Andy to many friends, business partners and clients. He has always delivered great work! I visited Andy in Buenos Aires multiple times, and he has traveled to our office in Minneapolis while working on a past project. Andy's team is a well oiled machine & a rare find - creative, organized, and value focused... Bracket delivers design quality consistent with large US based firms in a fraction of the time and cost. I highly recommend Andy and his team for any design, web and programming projects.
