About Us

BuilDATAnalytics is a business intelligence company for the commercial construction industry. Our cloud-based, webaccessible software platform, CTBIM, is a tool that brings accountability through documentation from the field to management. CTBIM allows construction stakeholders from owners to architects, contractors and construction managers to have access, from any location in the world, to the same real-time information about inventory received, completed construction activities and contracting dollars earned through a web-accessible platform. BuilDATAnalytics empowers informed managers and executives to make smarter, faster and more impactful decisions through selfgenerated analytics from any location in the world.

BuilDATAnalytics is not a typical construction software firm. We are in the business of intelligence. We enable stakeholders to make decisions at the speed of thought. We help improve business processes so that construction projects are completed more efficiently, with greater controls and heightened transparency.

TIFFANY HOSEY, ESQUIRE

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Tiffany Hosey is a business executive, lawyer and recent innovator in construction analytics. While working as a civil litigator for over 15 years, her experience ranged from the defense of professional liability cases to serving as counsel to a panel of judges overseeing a multi-billion dollar products liability litigation fund. Before founding BuilDATAnalytics, she worked for 7 years as President of her family’s construction management company.

Tiffany created CTBIM out of her need for an evidenced based approach to construction. While working with her family’s construction company, she was often challenged by the lack of accountability controls, cost controls and paucity of information on routine issues prevalent on most construction projects. After creating CTBIM, BuilDATAnalytics was chosen out of over 250 competitors as a winner of the 1st Ballston BID Launchpad Challenge, sponsored by Ted Leonsis and the Ballston Business Improvement District.

Tiffany has been a guest lecturer for the Strategy and Entrepreneurship program at Marymount University School of Business Administration, and has presented a webinar to the Department of Construction Science at Texas A&M.

She holds a Class A Contractor's license from the Commonwealth of Virginia; is certified by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Quality Control Construction Management; is proficient in written and spoken Japanese; and holds a J.D. from The George Washington University Law School and a B.A. in English Literature from Georgetown University.

CTBIM

PRE-CONSTRUCTION

The CTBIM database controls the flow of information throughout the lifecycle of construction projects. The database setup is the most critical phase of our contract implementation. We use the planning and database setup phase to hone in on the specific architectural design information that will be integrated into CTBIM. Additionally, before construction activities begin, we upload each contractor’s accounting information into the CTBIM system for financial tracking.

CONSRTUCTION



After we have completed the database setup, the CTBIM platform is ready for use in the field. Use of the CTBIM platform by filed crew provides the following benefits to stakeholders:

  • Dashboards providing real-time insight into project status;
  • On-site inventory tracking;
  • Real-time status of percentage of project completion by construction trade;
  • Real-time calculation of contracting dollars earned by construction trade;
  • Trend data;
  • More accurate assessment of project schedule compliance;
  • Decrease in waste, errors and inefficiencies;
  • Data mining for project analysis; and
  • Production of best practice reports.


POST-CONSTRUCTION

After construction activities have been completed, a digitized record of micro-level data collected in the CTBIM system throughout the lifecycle of projects is archived. This easily navigable, archived data enables facilities maintenance providers to more easily access data needed for repairs, replacements, to predict the longevity of assets, and to better manage maintenance costs. The micro-level data is housed on our servers and is available to customers on demand throughout the life-cycle of buildings.


FACILITIES MAINTENANCE

After project completion, a digitized record of data collected in the CTBIM system throughout the lifecycle of projects is stored and archived in our servers. Facilities maintenance providers can easily navigate the data in the system and obtain warranty, model and operations and maintenance information for installed materials and equipment.


3D ANIMATION

We can provide impactful visual aids to workers involved in commissioning, activities involving the assembly and disassembly of equipment or materials. Our 3D animated videos can demonstrate step-by-step repair, maintenance, assembly or disassembly procedures straight from a manufacturer’s O&M manual.

The following is an example of a 3D animated video of maintenance procedures for a chiller created from a manufacturer’s maintenance manual:

COST SEGREGATION STUDIES

One of the best, most impactful ways for owners of new, large commercial construction projects to utilize tax-deferral savings is through cost segregation. By reclassifying real property under Internal Revenue Code Section 1250 to personal property under Code Section 1245, owners can realize significant tax savings and thereby increase their cash flow savings by accelerating the depreciation of components of new buildings earlier in the 39 year depreciable life cycle.

Preparing a quality cost segregation study for large properties can be challenging since there are no bright-line rules for how auditors distinguish between §1250 real property from §1245 personal property. Distinguishing §1250 real property from §1245 personal property with proper documentation is key to successfully segregating costs in an auditor proof manner.

With proper documentation and if successful, owners can realize an estimated annual tax savings of up to $50,000 per every $1,000,000 of acquisition costs. These are huge tax savings for owners seeking to build 21st Century, first-in class properties.

Use of CTBIM on large construction projects can provide tax professionals with the reliable, auditable documentation needed to support cost segregation studies. The following real-time records can be automatically generated from the use of CTBIM throughout the lifecycle of construction projects:

  • Before and after photographs to establish land and site preparation costs
  • “As Built” data
  • Classification of assets into property classes
  • A complete list of project costs including but not limited to contractor costs, materials and equipment costs
  • Photographs of classified personal property with proof of sourcing
  • Payment records, including AIA Form G-702 and backup documentation for AIA Form G-704
  • Segregation of items with similar class lives and placed-in-service dates
