Based in Florida, the Construction platform LLC began as a small-scale project to help contractors network with trade specific individuals and organizations. The working concepts that were patentable, highly unique and valuable to the construction industry then expanded into a large-scale development in 2022.
With an established network and knowledge of the east coast, The Construction Platform developed a team of engineers, design specialists, researchers, and advertising professionals to create the first construction industry social networking platform.
The Construction Platform focuses on building networks and relationships, while providing opportunity. We know networking and connecting have the power to change and develop your success. The construction platform provides you the opportunity to do business, develop pipelines, gain more revenue, and ultimately have happier customers from a proper functioning supply chain of labor and materials.
The construction platform is based on a simple premise to build a network from a website to jobsite. We developed proprietary databases and patent pending technology to smooth and quicken the process of interacting with professionals and getting the job done.
With technical expertise and years of contracting knowledge, knowing what’s broken, and what needed to change, we developed a connection platform that provides opportunity for connecting tradesmen, contractors, professional organizations, and vendors to streamline building relationships, bridging the labor shortage gap and procuring materials to get work done.
We have always known that if a tradesmen could just present their portfolio to the industry, they could increase their market value and find new opportunities. Therefore, we made this possible. Tradesmen, contractors, organizations and even vendors can build a portfolio of their prized work, or maybe just use our unique resume feature when registering your profile and add some lightning to your resume! The construction platform is your answer to highlighting your portfolio of work, licensure, and history while presenting it to the industry.
The construction platform recognizes that we are going through a paradigm shift in the construction industry. We are moving from a world where companies control the process, to one in which a network is digitally enhanced and the buyer is in control. This is truer today that at any time in the past.

They will deny their leaders, refused to take any credit for anything and say” it’s the team” or “it’s the people” or “you make that happen” which is why they are really great to work with. And for construction guys they clean up pretty good!
