How old is BuildIT?
BuildIT was founded in August 2000.
Who started BuildIT?
BuildIT was founded by a group of contractors with a broad range of construction and business experience.
Each had a deep understing that contractors and the people that work in construction:
- wear too many hats,
- are constantly pulled in different directions,
- go to bed at night with the gears still turning,
- live with way more stress than they need to and,
- that systems are the ONLY way to better manage, organize, schedule, and communicate.
So, they decided to "put their money where their mouth is" and do something to help solve some of the problems faced by contractors and the people that work with them — including sub contractors, clients, and suppliers.
Where is BuildIT located?
Our people and minds are located wherever they want to live — throughout North America. Why? Because with the Internet and modern phone systems it really doesn't make any difference where people live - and everyone has gotta live somewhere.
Our servers and equipment are located in Vancouver, BC. Why? Because it's a world-class facility located in a world class city AND Canada has very strong privacy laws that protect the security and privacy of your information, no matter where you live.
Read about the US Patriot Act, and you'll see why Vancouver came out on top...
