IBS 2022 attendees get a first look at new software for homebuilders.

Attendees at the 2022 International Builders’ Show (IBS) got a first look at the digital technology that Paradigm and Builders FirstSource (BFS) representatives say is being designed to revolutionize residential construction.

In their first major joint marketing effort since the August 2021 acquisition by BFS, the two companies exhibited a portfolio of current and upcoming products and technologies designed to change the way homes are designed, built, and sold.

From lot selection and architectural design, to whole-house takeoffs and configurable visualizations, showgoers were wowed with solutions that help remove friction and bring greater accuracy and efficiency to the entire residential construction supply chain.

“The builders’ show was a great opportunity to demonstrate how leveraging technology drives productivity in homebuilding,” says Tim Page, BFS Executive Vice President of Digital Solutions. “Our vision is to transform the industry with an end-to-end digital platform that makes residential construction more efficient for all project participants. That includes the homebuilder, their homebuyers and trades, and all of our integrated supply chain partners.”

From basic drafting to complete building information modeling (BIM), Paradigm and BFS can handle builders’ toughest architectural design and structural engineering challenges – saving them time and money in the preconstruction process. Our knowledgeable teams of experts can help homebuilders expand floor plan offerings, enhance staff capacity and capabilities, and help ensure an efficient construction project.

Paradigm’s configurable visualization technology enables builders to efficiently move a buyer from first contact to final contract – and beyond. Our industry-leading software for homebuilders employs accurate, photorealistic 3D visualizations generated from approved blueprints. Builders have control of all structural and design configurations, while homebuyers have the ability to choose and visualize those options in real time.

High-resolution renderings from Paradigm help builders put their best marketing foot forward and sell more homes. Stunning images capture buyers’ attention by showcasing detailed floor plans, amazing 3D walkthroughs, community tours, and photorealistic elevations in perfectly landscaped settings.

Paradigm is developing a plan library with real-world construction in mind. From homebuyer inspiration, to handing over the keys, Paradigm plans show builders the most efficient path to completing a new home.

Engineered, site-specific plan packages include elevations, floor plans, a READY-FRAME® plan package, roof truss and floor systems, and cross sections. And each plan is thoughtfully rendered in 3D and includes a full bill of material and marketing collateral for use with homebuyers.
