The construction marketplace startup asked us to design and develop a technical solution of outstanding quality for the residential housing construction industry. The system should provide an exceptional b2b construction marketplace that would bring buyers and suppliers together.
1. To provide value for the individuals with exceptional house buying service by covering the full cycle of house buying-related operations in a single construction industry marketplace.
2. To decrease the construction time of residential units in order to ramp up housing production by cutting operating costs and delays, and improving operation management with the digital end-to-end management system.
A special request was to design a solution architecture with high horizontal scalability from the very beginning of the MVP development so it would serve as a reliable base for future product growth. At the same time, UX/UI and backend architecture should be as flexible as possible in order to quickly adapt to the user’s feedback and market demands.
Housing project customization
Construction permits remote acceptance
First, we started IT consulting services and scheduled a meeting where the client shared their idea and project details. The client wanted to test their idea and use the budget wisely - these were the reasons to start the project with MVP.
We provided IT consulting In order to meet the scalability requirement, the technology stack for backend implementation supports clustering and each part of the system can be scaled by adding additional computation resources. The construction marketplace development also required a complex DevOps approach with three staging servers and automated deployment.
We introduced a mutual code review flow within a team to make sure the construction marketplace platform will be able to work in a bug-free, smooth, and predictable manner. That generally increased the MVP development time, and at the same time would assure cost and time-saving in further stages of the product development.
The interfaces of the system are intuitive, clear, and easy to use. We took a non-classical approach to renderUX/UI design services by stepping aside from the former stereotypes and managed to make an appealing design that was also flexible and easy to modify in case we needed to add new features and blocks in the future.
The web management interface and the backend support flexible users and roles management systems based on the attribute-based model.
The project has an infinite potential for growth and improvement, engaging new types of services and suppliers. It is an honor and pleasure for us to be part of this project while it enters the market, changes the industry landscape, and grows.
