1build, an API for live construction cost data and integrations with construction suppliers, has announced a new partnership with STACK Construction Technologies, a construction software platform, to deliver data to support takeoff and estimating tools.
Through the integration of 1build’s API, STACK users will gain access to 1build’s database of over 68 million data points covering every county in the United States, at no additional cost to their existing plan with the platform. This upgrade will allow contractors to develop accurate estimates that are localized to the county their project is set within, all without ever leaving the platform to check a printed cost book.
“The contractors who will succeed in this post-COVID environment will be the ones able to adapt to new tools and technology immediately. At 1build, we elevate contractors above their competition and arm them with the labor and materials data necessary to win bids,” said 1build founder and CEO Dmitry Alexin. “STACK was the perfect home for our data, as existing and new customers alike will have the most powerful takeoff and estimation tools on the market. The future of commercial construction is here.”
With 1build’s integrated API, STACK customers will gain access to real-time pricing in every single county in the U.S., for both materials and labor. The result is a smoother bid process for customers who are working to push commercial development back to pre-pandemic levels. Additionally, the platform allows contractors to limit the amount of communication and interactions with suppliers.
“It’s no secret that construction projects took a heavy hit during the pandemic, which is why it’s more important than ever that contractors can accurately estimate the cost of their projects. Our partnership with 1build gives the power of on-demand data to our customers to make the takeoff and estimation processes more efficient, and make their bids more attractive,” said STACK Construction Technologies CEO and co-founder Phil Ogilby. “Frequent and automatic updates on cost data will ensure our customers will stay ahead of their competition, no matter where they are based in the U.S.”
