5 Ways We're Reinventing The Residential Construction Process
Multitaskr is transforming the way San Diego and Austin build using new inventions that accelerate and automate the process for homeowners.
There are new inventions driving construction, helping build better, faster, and for a good investment. In late March 2020, Multitaskr CEO and Founder Joe Frausto introduced virtual reality (VR). The VR technology was one of the tools he planned to build into the customer journey at Multitaskr. When the pandemic hit, he realized virtual reality could enhance the customer experience with limited in-person meetings.
The start-up is reinventing residential construction, simplifying homeownership. Using tech-based services, Multitaskr can provide homeowners with everything they need in one place.
No more contractor visits with a measuring tape or writing down measurements on the yellow legal pads. Going back and forth between architects and contractors as well doesn't exist. The new tech tools Multitaskr is creating are reinventing residential construction in San Diego and Austin, and will soon come to a city near you.
While taking measurements on a site is the first step to layout design, remodel, or complete an addition, there is a better way to automate that process.
1. Virtual Floor Plan (VFP)
The Virtual Floor Plan (VFP) is one of many tech inventions that accelerates collecting measurements. Using a 3D camera called matterport, a certified technician scans the interior and exterior of the property in 30-45 minutes. Once completed, the scan is uploaded immediately and shared with drafters to create the 2D floor plans. The scan also creates a 3D tour of your property. This virtual tour is used during the 2D design phase for drafters to lay out the space to scale.
2. Home Diagnostic Report (HDR)
The Home Diagnostic Report (HDR) is a complete report that details your property condition. The HDR is also the first site visit to the owners home.
Like the Virtual Floor Plan, a certified technician completes the Home Diagnostic Reports capturing drone shots, completing a virtual floor plan, and a home inspection. The drone shots capture the roof's condition, collect property measurements, trace water lines, and identify building setbacks. The home inspection breaks down the specific property conditions such as heating, plumbing, electrical, roof, attic, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, and the foundation.
3. Project Analysis Cost (PAC)
The Project Analysis Cost (PAC) is a tool that is currently a work in progress. This tech-based analysis is set to reinvent construction by breaking down property data and the numbers behind your investment before making any improvements. Once the Home Diagnostic Report is complete, our team of estimators and project coordinators will share your investment potential. The following data points are presented, current home value, future home value, short-term rental, long-term rental, property zoning, and a construction feasibility report. The PAC will be uploaded to your Homeowner Dashboard, where you will have 24-hour access to view your investment analysis. Having second thoughts on whether or not you're making the right move. Well, the PAC will give you reassurance.
4. Project Development Plan (PDP)
There is a stigma between contractors and homeowners created based on hidden costs, miscommunication, and project delays. Today, there is a tool that is shifting the tone for construction. The Project Development Plan (PDP) makes construction honest and avoids change orders at all costs. This tech-based construction bundle gives you everything you need as a homeowner or contractor to start your project. When you get a PDP, you receive 2D floor plans, virtual floor plans, a 3D rendering of your new space, virtual reality, and the scope of work. There's no more going back and forth between contractors and architects. The PDP streamlines the construction process, managing every construction phase from design to estimating, financing, and building.
5. 3D Rendering
3D Renders are bringing architecture and design to life months before construction begins. Once our team of drafters has completed your design, they'll share the design with our 3D architects, who will create a unique project render. This 3D rendering is an essential tool for clients to visually understand their space and make design edits. Clients can request design edits by touring their 3D rendering in virtual reality. Suppose you decide you want marble countertops in your new ADU, but once you walk through your space in virtual reality, you change your mind. In that case, you can process that design with our 3D architects, preventing change orders amid construction. 3D rendering is reinventing the way we get on the same page with contractors and communicate project visions. Construction will not begin until the 3D rendering has been approved by the client.
