Shiel Sexton builds for people who Expect More.  We do this by providing a great building experience, by ensuring we have the right team on the project, and by utilizing our Shiel Sexton OS+ (operating systems). OS+ is essentially “how we get things done”. It is the intersection of discipline and innovation.

Our preconstruction team recently upgraded software to BuildingConnected Pro (BC Pro).   The Cloud-based software helps manage our subcontractor database and bid invitations while organizing and tracking subcontractor qualifications. BC Pro streamlines what we do as preconstruction professionals; it helps us communicate and collaborate more effectively with our partners.

The team piloted the initial version of BuildingConnected to ensure it would work. We found it to be the most user-friendly, collaborative tool on the market for us and our subcontractors. We like how easy it is to create project teams within the program, allowing project managers and superintendents to participate in the preconstruction process from day-one.

With the move to BC Pro, we are taking preconstruction to the next level. We have the ability to improve our subcontractor qualifications, create custom bid forms for each bid package, and easily analyze the bids within the system. We can also track historical cost data, number of projects subcontractors have submitted on, and assess performance analytics. All of this information makes us better at what we do.

With the addition of BC Pro, Shiel Sexton OS+ enables us provide a great experience for our owners, design partners, and subcontractors. We are able to prequalify subcontractors and ensure we have the right people on the right project. BC Pro will become an integral part of our operating systems to help us be successful on every project.   To check out a list of our current bidding opportunities, click here.
