iBUILT is reimagining what a building is, how it is designed and constructed, and how it is managed post construction, in order to solve the inefficiencies and pain points that have plagued the construction industry for far too long.
iBUILT was founded in 1965 as Deluxe Modular. For over five decades, Deluxe was an industry leader, pioneering new processes including the introduction of structural steel into modular buildings in 1982. The company’s 24-acre manufacturing campus and three manufacturing facilities provide enormous manufacturing capacity and easy access to rail, ship and truck transportation.
Today, iBUILT is redefining the construction paradigm by using technology and offsite manufacturing to build better buildings, in half the time, and at significant cost savings compared to conventional construction. By eliminating inefficiencies at each stage of the building lifecycle, we are giving owners greater control, bringing their buildings to market in half the time and at significant cost savings.
By re-imagining what a building is — how it is designed and how it is constructed, embedding proprietary software for post-construction facilities management, incorporating sustainability standards and selling buildings at the price determined by our customers, iBUILT has redefined the construction value proposition.
Over the past two decades, iBUILT, through its subsidiaries, has completed scores of volumetric steel modular projects across a range of categories including multifamily housing, student housing, hospitality, healthcare, senior living, and schools. Download a comprehensive list of projects.
iBUILT is developing software solutions to support the company’s design and construction business and provide for the future needs of the rapidly transforming building industry. These digital products will serve building owners across the lifespan of their buildings – from initial design using AI powered tools and configurators, through the management of the project during manufacture and construction, to the maintenance of the building after construction is complete.
iBUILT is developing a state-of-the-art generative design system to enable its clients to design the perfect buildings for their sites instantly. Rather than designing every building from scratch, iBUILT’s buildings are designed as systems that can autonomously adapt to the needs of each client and the constraints of each site. Using this system, our clients can quickly explore a large variety of building options for their site, while getting accurate, real-time information about the cost and the timeframe associated with each option.
Despite the early promise of Building Information Modeling (BIM), the fragmentation of the building industry has prevented this technology from having an impact on the way buildings are designed, built, and occupied. iBUILT is changing this paradigm to enable the realization of BIM’s full potential.
The company’s integrated and automated technology enables production of a highly detailed Digital Twin model of every iBUILT building. The model encodes all of the instructions for the building, including how to manufacture it, how to assemble it, and how to most effectively manage it once construction is complete.
iBUILT is designing a state-of-the-art digital platform to give developers control over their construction projects and disintermediate the players that create friction, increase costs and cause delays. This software, currently in beta testing, will soon enable developers to:
Design their buildings generatively
Customize their finishes from an extensive product library
Apply for building permits online on an expedited basis
Have their project built turnkey — price and schedule guaranteed
Use our digital twin software to save 70% of operating costs
THE iBUILT FAST TRACK PROGRAM
iBUILT recognizes the importance of getting to market quickly – before the competition. Unlike the conventional development process that is laden with delays and added costs, the iBUILT Fast Track program delivers a fully designed building in 30 business days. The Fast Track deliverable includes comprehensive interior and exterior designs; 70%+ of architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire prevention drawings; a complete schedule of finishes; and a guaranteed schedule and price.
NO CHANGE ORDERS
iBUILT will never put forward a change order unless it is requested by our client. This is in sharp contrast to the conventional development process, where contractors routinely ‘low-ball’ their initial bids to win the job, and then rely on change orders during construction to significantly increase their prices. In fact, change orders usually add between 11% – 40% to initial quoted prices.
