What is WeBuild?

WeBuild is a cloud-based construction management platform built specifically for construction workflow to help clients manage all their projects from the one place, cut admin times and make better business decisions.

WeBuild helps you to improve every aspect of running a construction business, from preparing bids with sub-contractors to managing documents, on-site field activities, project quality and safety.

We have a plan suitable for your business needs whether you’re part of a development company, construction company, specialty sub-contractor, supplier, architectural firm or engineering firm.

Our competitive plans include no upfront set-up cost, unlimited file storage, free system upgrades and free technical support for our clients and their collaborators. Clients pay only the subscription fee for the number of their internal users of the system, providing maximum flexibility to scale system usage and cost up or down to suite their changing business needs.

Does WeBuild require any training?

The difference between Collaboration account and a Management account

The answer is project control.

If your company manages project documentation, engages other companies (e.g. sub-contractors) for sub-contract work, procurement or consultancy services and oversees day to day site operations, your team will require a Management Account.

A holder of a Management Account is usually a head contractor or a developer who can upload unlimited number of projects on the system, have unlimited access to all the features we offer, and have complete control over other companies working on the project.

On the other hand, if your company is engaged to price work or provide consultancy services for a certain aspect of a project, you can connect with the project by creating a free Collaboration Account.

Which branch category should I choose?

Selecting a branch type helps us tailor your account to your needs. There are three branch types to choose from:

• Owners & Consultants – Your company primarily manages and consults with general contractors on a project.

• General Contractors & Developers – Your company is regularly engaged by owners to manage or oversee the management of an entire project. This includes working with consultants and managing sub-contractors and suppliers.

• Sub-contractors & Suppliers – Your company bids for work/supply associated with your specialty trade.
