Boro Construction Leverages GradeBeamA® To Improve Their Bid Management Process

CHICAGO, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Textura® Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Boro Construction, a General Contractor that specializes in the construction and renovation of federal, state, and municipal buildings and property, has begun using GradeBeam to improve the pre-construction process.


"With our previous solutions, we had trouble reaching out to specialized sub-contractors as well as properly meeting good faith qualifications, particularly the number of subcontractors allowed to bid on projects," said David Herb Project Manager and Estimator at Boro Construction. "GradeBeam has made this much easier, and it has allowed us to review financials, insurance, bonding and work history much easier and quicker."

GradeBeam allows General Contractors such as Boro Construction to simplify the massive amounts of information exchanged in the pre-construction phase of a construction project, including Invitations-To-Bids, drawings/specification distribution, corrections, addenda, RFIs and responses.

"I manage projects from start to finish, all the way from bidding to building," said Herb. "GradeBeam is a great tool to help me organize all the necessary information throughout the project cycle. I've used different solutions over the years, but I am impressed with the team approach and hands-on feel from GradeBeam, and the level of customer service." Founded in 1974, Boro Construction currently performs over 50% of all work with a specialized labor force of over 230 staff, and generally performs all excavation, concrete, masonry, carpentry, HVAC, plumbing and electrical work.

"GradeBeam gives General Contractors the ability to connect and communicate more effectively," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. "By using GradeBeam, Boro Construction can increase transparency, consistency and accountability, helping them achieve new levels of efficiency and productivity."
