Leading Southern Builder Expands Use of Textura Field Management Solution Following Successful Pilot
Chicago, Illinois. — March 5, 2015 — Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that Boh Bros. Construction Co., L.L.C. has agreed to use Textura’s Latista solution across its operations.
A highly regarded builder in the Southern United States, Boh Bros. ranked No. 177 on the 2014 ENR 400 list of top general contractors. After using Latista on the $38 million Napoleon Avenue Phase III project in New Orleans, the general contractor decided to broadly implement the Textura field management solution because of its ease of use and level of client support.
“With other field management tools, we didn’t have the customer support we needed throughout the implementation process and during day-to-day use. Latista’s combination of powerful technology and responsive support has made it easy for us to drive process improvements and optimize our field management activities,” said Neil Hickok, Chief Engineer at Boh Bros. “We do a large amount of self-performed work, but collaboration is still incredibly important to maximizing efficiency. Latista delivers the tools we need to enable scalable project collaboration across teams, including visibility and transparency on issues management,” Hickok said.
The Latista solution brings construction project stakeholders together to help general contractors lower costs, reduce rework and eliminate delays. Latista automates workflows for quality management, punch lists, safety and electronic commissioning, and it brings document management, including project plans and Building Information Modeling (BIM), into the field.
David Sosnow, SVP – General Manager of Latista, stated: “We are honored and excited to partner with Boh Bros. We are pleased that their initial experience with Latista produced real improvements, and we look forward to supporting their future growth and commitment to quality construction.”
