Walking through the abundance of display homes. Searching for your perfect home and sorting them out one by one.

Enough bedrooms for the kids? Is the kitchen layout large enough for the family? Should we opt for an open plan instead, or do you prefer this? We definitely need a home office! 

As a client walks around a display village, there’s an abundance of questions and statements running on repeat through their heads. Let’s add a pool, just like this house! This should be within our budget, right? I’m so excited to live here!  It’s the chance to finally build a home; The first home. The home to settle down in. The home to raise a family in. The home to grow old in. The ultimate dream home. It’s an exciting time.

For a builder however, translating a client’s thoughts and expectations into a reality is extremely challenging, particularly due to the expected zero margin of error. Expectations are always set high and failure to meet these expectations when creating the dream space for a client guarantees builders a spot on the list of dodgy and incompentant builders.  

The issue here is that construction simply lacks innovation and still heavily relies upon traditional methods of sales, such as hand drawn plans and physical measurements. This ultimately means that a client is left to visualise their final product, rather than understand the specifics regarding the build. What they see in a display centre or on the front page of a catalogue is what they expect to receive – regardless of the size and location of their block, or budget. 

An initial meeting with a client is often not enough time to answer all their questions or really understand what they are after. The time for a builder to answer a simple question is often prolonged, feasibility isn’t assessed instantly, quotations are continuously being altered and the closest thing to an illustration of the structure is the initial hand drawn sketch plan. It is this fragmented method of operation that causes tension between client and builder. 

It’s a recurring pattern in the construction industry that has culminated in the creation of Canibuild – a sales application with direct aim to disrupt and transform the construction industry, introducing technology and innovation. 

Canibuild is an application that helps simplify this process, making it simpler for clients to visualise their final build and understand the feasibility instantly on a block of land. With the application, a builder can search a particular block of land and understand the feasibility of building the dream home. The design can instantly be placed on the property, providing clients with a visual illustration of their new home. No more leaving it to their imagination; no more waiting for answers. Builder’s can now answer questions within the initial meeting and determine whether it’s possible. 

Not only does this speed up the construction sales process dramatically, but also allows for honest and reliable communication between client and builder. 

“Trusted by many builders, the application makes a substantial difference in the construction sales process, helping builders understand exactly what clients are after. You can answer client questions regarding feasibility, positioning, layout and price instantaneously, no longer wasting time. We’re currently offering free demos for builders across Australia, America and Canada. The minute we show them the capabilities of Canibuild, builders are instantly intrigued and cannot wait to sign up. It’s a change in the construction industry, and it’s working exceptionally well.”

The application caters all sectors of the construction industry, as is currently primarily relied upon by Granny Flat and ADU builders, home builders and pool builders.
