Codifying the language of buildings, one cost estimate at a time
Did you know that lumber prices are outperforming Bitcoin? Did you know that the construction industry spends $1.4T on materials annually yet all of that spend takes place offline? Did you know that the best available data source for tracking construction prices is a physical catalog that's been published annually since 1945? 1build translates building blueprints into shopping lists of construction materials that can be purchased from local suppliers. We are codifying the language of buildings by creating a single data system for organizing construction materials costs and inventory. Over the last 9 months, we've grown 13x in revenue and facilitated $1B+ in construction spend. Our leadership team has backgrounds at Tesla, Uber, Expedia, Apple and WeWork. We have raised $20M+ in venture capital backed by Y Combinator, Initialized, Greycroft as well as founders of PlanGrid, Clearbit, and Lambda School.
