SEA alum-led BuildingConnected completes first acquisition
BuildingConnected, led by SEA alumnus Dustin DeVan, is the leading preconstruction platform for real estate owners and general contractors to hire qualified subcontractors. The company recently acquired TradeTapp, a subcontractor risk analysis platform. With the addition of TradeTapp, BuildingConnected becomes the only bid management platform that provides general contractors and owners project specific risk mitigation recommendations based on subcontractor qualification data. The acquisition of TradeTapp and integration of its products provide the more than 2,500 general contractors and owners on the BuildingConnected platform with a holistic, integrated preconstruction solution.
Dustin discusses his first experience purchasing a company. He says it is one of the easiest decisions of his life, and he couldn’t be more thrilled with this acquisition and what the two companies will do together.
