38North: Implements RedTeam to Deliver Projects at a Higher Level than Competitors
38North is a General Contractor and Construction Management Company specializing in Commercial Construction. Based out of Colorado Springs, 38North offers over 20 years of successful project delivery with a simple goal, to create a long-term relationship based on common values and goals in order to exceed client’s expectations.
“Construction has to be efficient and we have to be able to produce and document our projects quickly and without errors.”
After speaking with Jim Hopper, General Manager at 38North, he said they decided to implement RedTeam because they were “looking for a system that would combine all phases of the construction – opportunities, preconstruction/estimating, contract admin, contracts, submittals, RFI’s, changes/pay applications, and accounting. RedTeam does all this and provides a single platform for all things construction.”
Hopper also commented on RedTeam’s best capabilities, listing off a few of his favorites:
- The preconstruction module because it helped to reduce the possibility of errors by not using a spreadsheet.
- The format and ability for submittals and RFI’s to be documented and answered within the system.
- Standardizing their product. Clients need to know what they are getting and need to be comfortable with the results of their projects.
One concern that clients have when implementing RedTeam is that external stakeholders will have difficulty adopting the new system. From Hopper’s experience, he says that “the training provided in the videos is a good start to using the system, they all understand and see the benefits of having a solid system.”
RedTeam’s construction project management software makes it simple for general contractors to effectively manage projects. With the help of RedTeam, 38North will continue to bid on more opportunities and manage each project more efficiently.
