Oct. 19, 2011: New Dexter + Chaney Unit to Focus on Construction Collaboration Software

October 19, 2011
SEATTLE — Dexter + Chaney has announced the creation of a new business unit — the Dexter + Chaney Operations Group — which will supply new construction software platforms and applications to those involved in construction operations across all phases of the project lifecycle, from pre-construction through live construction.

“Construction collaboration has been an industry buzzword for a number of years,” said John Chaney, president and co-founder. “We created the Dexter + Chaney Operations Group with one objective in mind — use technology to help make collaboration a reality, not just a buzzword.” Chaney continued, “We looked at the sheer number of different applications used by our customers from pre-bidding through to project completion, and we were shocked. We knew that there had to be a better way to deliver technology to construction firms trying to work together. That’s when we began forming the Operations Group.”

A culmination of over two years of recruiting construction operations talent and researching new technology approaches, said the company, the Dexter + Chaney Operations Group will be hitting the ground running. According to Chaney, “What we’ve done with the Operations Group is gather the right people together with the skills and industry domain experience to address the challenges of construction collaboration and Integrated Project Delivery. I am very excited about the direction we’re headed and the progress the group has already made in bringing a unique solution to market.”

According to Chaney, the Operations Group will be announcing its first product offerings in early 2012. “Look for more than a few new applications,” said Chaney. “Look for a whole new approach to project collaboration software from Dexter + Chaney.”
