DigiBuild Raises $4M Seed to

Fix Construction Supply Chains

The round includes high profile investors YCombinator,

Draper Associates, Picus Capital, and Harvard

Construction is one of the largest and oldest markets in

the world. Projects involve many stakeholders that bare

significant cost and risk. McKinsey estimates that the average

construction project is 80% over budget and 20 months behind

schedule. The number one reason for that failure is supply

chain and material management issues.

DigiBuild is working to change that. Their goal is to digitize the

fragmented and tedious workflows involved in managing and

procuring building materials. They’ve created an easy-to-use

software platform that automates finding, ordering, tracking

and managing materials needed on a construction project. The

platform includes innovative features like Predictive Scheduling

which produces “Must Order by Dates” that guarantees

contractors have the material they need on time to meet their

job schedules.

The company announced the $4 million seed round with

investors: YCombinator, Draper Associates, Harvard University,

Picus Capital, Bluefield Capital (2x), Cathexis Ventures, MH

Carnegie, YC Alum Fund, Emerging Ventures, Chain Reaction

and more. The round included strong signals from construction

heavy hitters such as investments from the cofounders of

contech unicorn PlanGrid (YC W12, acquired $875M by

Autodesk) and Build Technologies, a venture fund of major

construction companies.

DigiBuild’s main product is DigiProcure, the material

management solution. Using this tool, customers are reporting

powerful results such as cutting material management (change)

hours in half, saving hundreds of thousands with better material

pricing, and reducing contractor schedule misses by 90%.

The Miami based company also offers DigiEndeavour, a general

construction management offering comparable to the industry

leading solutions.

Of note, multiple industry leaders like Procore have been

rumored to have explored investment in DigiBuild. CEO Robert

Salvador commented of those offers “we appreciate the interest

of the construction-tech industry’s trail blazers in the in us. We

closed the round before they had a chance to finalize investment,

but we look forward to working with them in the future”.

The company seems well-positioned to succeed in this lucrative

market segment. DigiBuild has a well-qualified team of leaders

who have managed over $5 billion in construction projects and

an experienced engineering team. Robert Salvador, Cofounder

and CEO, previously founded a construction company that

worked nationwide and was recently named one of Crain’s

Chicago Business’ “25 Rising Stars in Tech”. He is a frequent

speaker for construction organizations like BuiltWorlds and

The Construction Institute. Cofounder and COO April Moss

provides operational and customer success leadership having

been an executive that built teams for large companies such as

P&G, Starbucks, and Acosta Sales & Marketing.

As part of the near-term roadmap, DigiBuild will look to expand

their DigiProcure offering to additional trade contractors

and general contractors as they become the trusted material

management software for the construction industry.

The project requires the installation of small cellular antennas within

common areas of the hospitals. A number of Omni/Panel antennas and

associated equipment will be installed legally-specified areas.

As a result, the cellular base station is communicating with subscriber

cell phones and directing them to transmit with sufficient power to

be received without blocking other subscribers’ signals. By placing

antennas inside safe areas of the hospital, subscriber phones will

transmit with lower power when used near the new antennas in the

hospital.

Cellular providers place their new equipment in a hub where hospital

Wi-Fi, computer, and telephone equipment already exist. The

providers then connect to the new distributed antenna network. The

system is coordinated with competing cellular companies using the

same antenna system.

LEED Projects – Path to Energy-Efficiency

ELECTRICAL DESIGN IMPROVES

FIRST RESPONDER AND

HEALTHCARE COMMUNICATIONS –

ENERGY-EFFICIENCY A PRIORITY

By John Whitcraft, PE, CLD, LEED AP BD+C,

President of Whitcraft Engineering Solutions, Inc.

Los Angeles is home to nearly 4 million people and also home to

Dodger Stadium, L.A. Memorial Coliseum, Griffith Park and Griffith

Observatory, Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Getty Center, Hollywood

Walk of Fame, and multiple professional sports teams that draw

thousands of spectators each year. LA seems to offer something for

everyone – including challenging and fulfilling design work for those of

us in the construction and design industry.

Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System

(LA-RICS)

I’m honored to have contributed my electrical design services for

several LA-based projects by upgrading the radio and broadband

communications for first responders across Los Angeles County. I was

the engineer of record for the design of cellular radio power at three

hospitals in Los Angeles and multiple police and fire stations.

Cell Towers Improve San Diego Hospitals’ Communication

Currently, I’m designing cellular base transceiver stations to be

installed at four hospitals that are part of Scripps Health: Scripps

Mercy Hospital Chula Vista, Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego, Scripps

Green Hospital Radiation Therapy Center, and Scripps Memorial

Hospital Encinitas. The project team includes hospital maintenance

staff, Crown Castle (antenna system owner), Mitchell J Architects, and

Whitcraft Engineering Solutions, Inc.

Previously, cell phones were prohibited inside hospitals for fear of

disrupting hospital communication/telemetry to patient equipment

and nurse-call systems. With the introduction of safe areas for

antennas and associated equipment, disruption is no longer a concern.

Many Los Angeles-based organizations are highly committed to

energy-efficiency in their construction, expansion, and remodeling

projects. With my LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental

Design) AP BD+C credentials, I am recognized as an expert in energyefficiency.

The AP BD+C designation is an advanced accreditation for

LEED experts who are knowledgeable about and actively working on

green building and LEED projects and is a professional accreditation

program overseen by the U.S. Green Building Council, which is also

responsible for certifying LEED-eligible buildings.

To achieve LEED certification, a building project earns points

by adhering to prerequisites and credits that address carbon,

energy, water, waste, transportation, materials, health, and indoor

environmental quality. Projects submit to a verification and review

process by Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI) and are awarded

points that correspond to a level of LEED certification.

LEED-certified buildings in Los Angeles include University of California

Los Angeles, the AON Center, and recording center Cherokee Studios.

California Leads the Nation in Clean Energy Projects

The California Energy Commission states, “California is leading the

nation toward a 100 percent clean energy future and addressing

climate change for all.” The Energy Commission develops and

mandates programs that use renewable energy, offers incentives for

energy technology installation and renewable energy grants, and

ensures that the efforts benefit all Californians.

In addition to encouraging energy-efficient commercial buildings,

California is now rewarding home builders who chose all-electric

systems and appliances, instead of gas. Recently, the Building Initiative

for Low-Emissions Development (BUILD) Program was developed to

reduce greenhouse gas emissions and expand access to affordable

all-electric buildings to include those most vulnerable to pollution

and climate change. “Buildings are a major contributor to California’s

[greenhouse gas] emissions, emitting a quarter of the state’s GHG…”

states a March 2022 press release. “Programs like BUILD are essential

to moving the market on new climate solutions while ensuring all

Californians benefit through targeted investments,” according to

CEC Commissioner J. Andrew McAllister. A few details on the BUILD

program include the following:

The BUILD program design was developed by the CEC in

collaboration with the California

Public Utilities Commission and is based on extensive stakeholder

engagement and input.

Incentives are limited to $2 million per applicant. Applicants

must be constructing new single- or multi-family homes in which


Honoring Our Warriors

With a mission to create safe

and beautiful cottages for

injured military veterans, the

Warrior Foundation Freedom

Station was founded in

2004. I volunteered in

2016 to be part of an

electrical design project at

the original WFFS campus

on 28th St. in the Golden

Hill neighborhood of San

Diego, which was officially

dedicated on May 29,

2020 (Warrior Foundation

Freedom Station II).

Affectionately known as The Home of the Brave, this remodeled

group of cottages, circa 1920, supports the mission to help United

States warriors successfully progress from military service to

civilian life. One cottage was dedicated to my wife and me with

the official designation reading: “This cottage made possible by the

generosity of John and Connie Whitcraft, Whitcraft Engineering

Solutions, Inc.” because of my pro-bono electrical design work on

Freedom Stations I and II.

Electrical Design Work – The Details

I designed and negotiated the details of the electrical

specifications, working with two architects and two general

contractors on Freedom Station II. After measuring and taking

notes on my initial site walk, I created an electrical sheet for

site information, one sheet for power connections to each floor

of the cottages, a single line (schematic) diagram, power load

calculations, panel schedules, lighting layouts, power layouts for

each cottage, Title 24 energy requirements documents, general

notes, and an SDG&E power service request form. The main issue

was complying with the California Electrical Code, Title 24 and

the California Green energy codes, while keeping equipment costs

affordable. Fortunately, my years of experience served me well.

I am especially proud of advancing fire protection and electrical

safety in these remodeled buildings that have modern appliances

and use low-energy lighting.

Supporting Military Veterans –

I highly recommend volunteer work to other design engineers

and architects, especially projects that enhance the lives of

people who have protected our freedom. “Freedom makes a

huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes

responsibility.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)

electricity is the only fuel for space heating and cooling, water

heating, cooking, and clothes drying. The program also requires

that the housing lower residents’ utility bills.

The program funds between $1,000 and $3,000 per bedroom.

Incentives vary by building design and climate zone and are

based on the estimated amount of GHG saved by opting for

all-electric construction compared to a mixed-fuel development

that might use natural gas for heating, for instance. Projects that

further reduce GHG emissions with specific technologies—such

as electric vehicle (EV) charging stations or appliances using

refrigerants with low global warming potential—can qualify for

additional reimbursement.

Selecting an Electrical Engineer Who Adheres to California’s Energy

Rules and Regulations.

California’s proactive energy laws, rules, and regulations can be

overwhelming for construction industry leaders. The American

Institute of Architects (AIA) California offers useful advice in its web

posting, “What You Can Do Right Now: Electrify Everything” (Feb.

2021). According to architects Scott Shell, Henry Siegel, and Joel

Stout: “If you are designing a new building, work with your engineers

to analyze and propose all-electric equipment and appliances rather

than gas equipment and appliances. If you are rehabilitating existing

buildings, analyze the costs of ‘fuel switching’ to all electric equipment,

[which] may be limited by the size of the electrical equipment, but

rebates are available for fuel switching.”

AIA is a trusted, high-profile organization where I have held a

membership for several years. In one of my AIA blogs, I wrote,

Streamlining Title 24, CalGreen and the Code Adoption Process with

Effective Software, to share with other members. I was also interviewed

about how to select the right electrical engineer – one who strictly

adheres to the latest California codes and laws. Here are excerpts

from the article, Electrical Engineer Advises on Selection Process:

Specific experience and credentials are important, of course, and

so is good communication between the engineering consultant

and the construction decision-maker. The engineer should inform

the construction executive about the importance of complying

with Title 24, California’s building energy efficiency standards,

even if it results in a delay or increased costs. While staying on

budget is important, it’s vital to adhere to the law.

At the same time, the construction decision-maker should make

sure that the electrical engineering contractor is current on legal

requirements. Helpful link to 2022 Title 24 California Code

changes: Title 24 CA Code Changes.

Software Recommendations

In my opinion, Bluebeam Revu workflow and construction

management software is my top choice. It works within AutoCAD

as a high-quality PDF creator and has the ability to count

reference points with a certain shape or label, as well as create

tables or schedules of lighting fixtures, skylights, and other

construction materials. Bluebeam Revu software also helps with

a wide variety of documents, such as construction and electrical

drawings, plan check comments, supplier cut sheets, and technical

specifications.

Material And Pricing Clarity: 3 Steps Every Homebuilder And Remodeler

Owner Can Implement To Restore Business F.I.T.ness In A World Of Chaos

Wednesday, September 14 | 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

Windows that used to take 7 days in 2020 now take 7 months…maybe. Plywood that costs $11 now demands over $70!

Volatility is the new certainty, and contractors must create the discipline to develop a different level of fitness in their

business in order to navigate these new waters, with a more robust ship.

This life-changing and engaging 45 minute talk won’t waste your time in empty market predictions, but instead will provide you the tools to

build a better business that allows you to navigate a new business reality.

You will be equipped to beat chaos with predictability, and to build a business that weathers volatile changes, and makes time for what matters

most.

Target Audience: Homebuilders, Remodelers, Contractors

Recruiting And Hiring: The 4 Systems Every Homebuilder And Remodeler Owner Needs To

Build The Right People That Builds The Right Business

Thursday, September 15 | 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

People, people, people! How do we find the right people to hire? How do we find ANY people to hire?

The Boomers retired early, and the emerging generations are much more selective in the work they choose. How can you find the right people,

recruit them the right way, share the right vision, and then onboard them the right way that aligns with the right mission?

This life-changing and engaging 45 minute talk pulls from our work with hundreds of contractor owners that led to our proprietary and proven

roadmap.

This roadmap will equip you to beat chaos with predictability, and to build the team that will build the business to make time for what matters

most.

Target Audience: Homebuilders, Remodelers, Contractors

Selling Thru a Tough Economy

Wednesday, September 14 | 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

We’re seeing volatile pricing formats, supply chain interruption and rising interest rates. This usually ends in tough

economic conditions, resulting in construction industry challenges. Knowing the best way to stay ahead of these changes

and keep your business moving forward is difficult. We’ll look at the methods successful contractors use to weather

shifting economic conditions. We’ll cover:

1. Increasing your portion of the market pie

2. Getting a competitive advantage

3. Managing customer expectations

4. Structuring your sales effort

5. How to balance sales and marketing efforts

You’ll come away from this session with a better understanding of what it will take to grow in both revenue and

profitability in these times. Sales is the most important aspect of your business. Everything else simply follows that lead.

Target Audience: Architects, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Builders & Remodelers

Networking & Association Use

Thursday, September 15 | 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

Many contractors never join relevant associations that can produce revenue for them. Even worse they spend the dues money and don’t

maximize the effectiveness of the association. We will layout how to determine what associations to join, how to work them and get business

from your involvement. The single greatest way to find grouped customers and network contacts is right in your backyard association!

Work them to the fullest and you’ll never make a cold call again!

Target Audience: Architects, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Builders & Remodelers

PuzzleHaus

PuzzleHaus structures are a new type of environmentally

efficient small House used as accessory dwelling units

or similar, made from 3 Dimensional blocks. These

blocks are portable, which allows end users to assemble

the House if they choose. In addition, the mechanical,

electrical, and plumbing fittings are embedded and

preinstalled within the appropriate blocks to facilitate

quick installation and create healthy air and efficient

lighting.

34 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM

Most conventional building methods are dilapidated,

Expensive, inefficient in Energy consumption and

Complexity, and unnecessarily time-consuming. The

construction process includes the design phase, high

general contractor and labor fees, permitting and

materials selection, and the deliveries of many separate

trades and many supplies to the site. The majority of

currently constructed structures are permanent, Heavyweight,

and often combustible... (About 80% of detached

homes use timber elements) Due to global warming

and drought, hundreds of homes (as we have seen in

recent years) are subject to fire hazards all over the US,

especially in California, which is increasing yearly.

Qastic, as a design practice in collaboration with

structural engineers of Nast Enterprises, proposes a

portable, easy-to-assemble & reusable series of blocks

that interconnect and make an efficient and perfectly

attractive unit with a beautiful minimalist design.

The PuzzleHaus Prefabricated blocks are lightweight

& resilient. The product is reusable; however it was

designed to have a comparable end-of-life cycle as

conventional buildings. There is significant energy saving

in prefabrication and orderly delivery of the PuzzleHaus

blocks. The total cost of this unit is lower than the full


price of building the duplicate square footage through

traditional construction. As a reusable prefabricated unit,

it is indeed an environmentally friendly option. Upon

request, we provide installation instructions so that a

typical end user could potentially assemble the House

themselves in a very timely matter. Since the mechanical,

electrical, and plumbing fittings are embedded within the

specifically designed panels, though they are not visible

yet accessible for repair or replacement purposes.

PuzzleHaus is agile and innovative and can potentially

present many business opportunities, ranging from

temporary to permanent applications, as below.

• Accessory Dwelling Units: Backyard and rental

structures.

• Home: Modern, affordable homes built in a

fraction of the time. Environmentally friendly, noncombustible,

and zero waste.

• Home Office: Home offices redefine the traditional

concept of home and office in a world where the two

are intertwined.

• Vacation Home: Affordable vacation spots extend the

opportunity for access to people who otherwise may

not be able to afford them.

• Schools: Quick, easy-build, high-quality schools

for deployment anywhere, particularly suitable for

emerging markets and regions in conflict or struck by

natural disasters.

• Hospitals: Easy-assembled hospitals deployed

anywhere in short notice, particularly suitable for

SPECIAL LOS ANGELES SHOW EDITION 2022 35


emerging markets, regions without access, or areas of conflict or

natural disaster.

Current Design Stage:

1. Puzzle Haus Blocks concept are Full designed for use in Small

Homes, Additional Dwelling Units, and Covered Patios, a few

prototypes have been installed and tested.

2. Further improvements and developments are in progress for

temporary and semi-permanent installation, including home

office, schools, and emergency/hospitals.

3. Many concept communities have been studied in preparation for

ongoing proposal for PuzzleHaus for ad-huck communities and

vacation homes needs within the city of Los Angeles.

At an early stage of a production line formation and having a

couple of full-scaled permitted and built prototypes, the engineers

are planning to absorb Resources for Realizing their Mission as an

expanding factory.

2. Operational Partnership

We seek to partner with investors who share our

passion and are interested in working with us beyond

just a financial contribution. We would love to work

with investor developers who have land or spaces that

they would be interested in deploying for Puzzle House

projects.

With all inflations in the construction industry and rising

costs in materials and labor, the designers believe that

incorporating the manpower of the community of end

users in the building process is hugely beneficial to keep

the construction cost affordable. The PuzzleHaus idea

would encourage the end users to build their spaces

based on the culture of DIY (do it yourself) more than

ever. This journey would turn the building process

freindlier, memorible, fun, and something meaningful and

beyond normal construction.

Second Phase of Construction

Starts at Vermont and

Manchester, Bringing Hope and

Renewal To South Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA, August 3, 2022 – At the corner of Vermont and

Manchester avenues, a lot that has been left vacant and blighted

since the 1992 Los Angeles Civil Uprising, construction has started

on Evermont. The new mixed-use development will deliver 180

affordable homes for seniors and families, retail stores, a transit

plaza, and a Metro training facility. Co-developers BRIDGE Housing,

the Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD),

and Primestor Development came together to address the needs

of a historically marginalized and under-resourced neighborhood,

where 78% of residents earn low to moderate incomes.

Since 2018, the development team has engaged deeply with the

community to create a shared vision for the site, including its name:

“Evermont.” The name was chosen to honor the evolving legacy

of South Los Angeles and celebrate a future of new possibilities.

Construction at Evermont is anticipated to be completed in 2024.

“Evermont is a promise kept to the surrounding communities

of Vermont and Manchester that I am proud to represent.

Reaching the construction stage has been a herculean lift and

true collaboration that exemplifies the strength in public-private

partners,” stated Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell.

“As these buildings rise from the ground, we are not only creating

physical spaces that will redefine our communities, we are

also investing in good paying jobs and sustainable community

development that will directly impact the lives of our residents.”

The residential component, led by BRIDGE Housing and CRCD,

consists of Vista@Evermont, which will offer 62 permanent

supportive housing apartments for seniors who have experienced

chronic homelessness, and Luminus@Evermont, which will feature

118 affordable homes for families with low incomes, including 60

permanent supportive housing units. Permanent supportive housing

combines affordable housing with wraparound health, behavioral

health, and social services to serve people who have experienced

chronic homelessness.

Ken Lombard, President and CEO, BRIDGE Housing commented,

“Evermont will deliver a quality solution that includes affordable

and permanent supportive housing with the services people need

to thrive. In keeping with our mission, Evermont goes beyond

housing to provide the retail, transit and education and jobs that

lift up neighborhoods. We’re proud to team up on this innovative

development that will create benefits for generations to come.”

“30 years after the LA Civil Unrest, we are excited to be a partner

in the development team bringing affordable and permanent

supportive housing and services to the Vermont Manchester

project,” said Mark Wilson, President and CEO of the Coalition for

Responsible Community Development. “CRCD is committed to

42 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM


providing resources and revitalizing neglected communities in South

Los Angeles. As a South LA native and local nonprofit leader, CRCD

will be responsive to the community through active engagement

and providing quality, affordable housing, and support services so

residents can thrive.”

On the ground level, retail partner Primestor is creating more than

64,000 square feet of commercial space that will be anchored by

Target and will include additional complementary retail use, with

a focus on local businesses. The retail and commercial space will

generate an estimated 155 full-time jobs; in the meantime, through

a local-hire program, the construction of Evermont itself will

provide an estimated 120 new job and training opportunities for

the local workforce.

“Primestor was founded 30 years ago as a response to the 1992

Civil Unrest; and for those last 30 years, the land at this intersection

has been a reminder to the community of those traumatic

days, and its aftermath,” commented Leandro Tyberg, President

and Co-Founder, Primestor Development. “Being a part of the

Evermont development is a sincere honor and privilege, as well as a

tremendous responsibility. We are committed to doing our part to

help our underserved communities have home-grown leadership,

self-representation, safety, unprecedented opportunity and access

to meaningful jobs, essential retail services, and quality housing.”

Located along the Vermont Corridor, the site is home to the second

busiest transit stop in the entire Metro system. Additional key

features of the development include a new, landscaped public

transit plaza located on Vermont Avenue, plus improved pedestrian

and cycling connections to other community facilities. The future

LEED Certified facilities will be connected by a 22,000-square-foot

plaza with a five-story parking structure to serve both commercial

and residential tenants.

Financial partners include JPMorgan Chase Bank, Los Angeles

County Development Authority (LACDA), County of Los Angeles

Measure H, Citibank N.A., Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD)

Proposition HHH, California Department of Housing & Community

Development (HCD), US Bank Trust Company, National Association,

Enterprise Community Investment, California Strategic Growth

Council, Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, Genesis LA, Los

Angeles Development Fund, and TELACU.

Evermont was designed by California-based TCA Architects.

Walker Consultants designed the parking garage, and the general

contractor is Suffolk. Oversight and construction management for

the 4.1-acre development site is being provided by international

construction consultants, Cumming Group.

Earlier, the first phase of construction saw the development of

the SEED School of Los Angeles, the county’s first public charter

boarding school that prepares students for careers in transportation

infrastructure, STEM, and the humanities. The school broke ground

in October 2020 and will welcome its inaugural class in August

2022.
