ConCntric, a preconstruction platform that is on a mission to transform the fractured preconstruction environment, recently unveiled a look inside of their software that is revolutionizing the industry.
ConCntric is the first holistic solution for preconstruction. Its 360-degree platform unites data, workflows and people to ensure a certainty of project outcome. To serve the individual project’s planning needs and the needs of the company, ConCntric provides a dynamic view of a company’s entire portfolio of preconstruction projects, offering analytics and insights to help general contractors, owners & developers, design teams and subcontractors set their projects up for success. ConCntric’s vision is to make the built world more affordable, sustainable and predictable.
ConCntric’s new website recently launched with a never-before-seen view into their platform. Some of the product features shown in the visual display include: Calibrate—a comparison tool that allows users to compare their current project status with prior project performance as well as industry benchmarks so they have an accurate picture of how their project is positioned, ForeSite—a dynamic forecast of possibilities and ability to scenario model outcomes to drive the alignment of design and budget, and Portfolio—a view of all of the user’s preconstruction projects with portfolio-wide KPI’s and analytics.
ConCntric was founded by Steve Dell’Orto, a 26-year construction industry veteran who’s passion for transforming the construction and real estate industry extends from his deep domain expertise as a former Executive Officer of one of the largest privately-owned, domestic general contractors in the U.S. with revenues averaging $5-6 billion annually.
Steve’s wealth of experience in structuring projects for success provided him with insight into some of the major gaps during this preconstruction planning phase. A period that can average anywhere from 3-36 months, preconstruction is a crucial part of a project’s success and despite lots of technological advancements in the past decade, preconstruction is still a highly manual and fractured collection of processes. Currently, many contractors are keeping essential information in scattered spreadsheets and documents. This fractured system limits collaboration and does not make it easy to have a clear view of the full picture of a project. With its wealth of testimonials from the industry, ConCntric is proving that it is the right solution to solve the major challenges across preconstruction.
“As a design-builder, we were looking for a holistic solution that would help us take collaboration during the preconstruction process to another level, and we’ve found that in ConCntric’s platform,” said Mike Vitkovich, Director of Preconstruction at Pankow.
ConCntric is a venture-backed startup supported by some of the leading VC’s and strategic investors in the construction tech space. In 2022, ConCntric had an oversubscribed seed round co-led by Argonautic Ventures and Builders VC along with strategic investors including Bentley iTwin Ventures and other notable industry partners.
“I have spent my entire career planning thousands of projects and have always wondered why there wasn’t a system to manage preconstruction in a more advanced way. It has been incredible to bring to life the solution that I wish I had and to experience the enthusiasm from our customers as they jump in with both feet,” said Steve Dell’Orto, Founder and CEO of ConCntric. “And, in so many ways, we’re just getting started.”
