Builder and Contractor Benefits:

Residential homebuilders face an uphill battle to scale, weighed down by shifting regulatory standards, legacy software systems, and redundant manual processes that result in lower efficiency and higher costs. They spend time performing hundreds of manual processes and paper-based tasks to design and build homes.

But, Higharc’s generative design Studio and Intelligent Building Model simplify home design data and construction documents using automation, creating a more efficient and cost-effective approach to building homes at scale. This allows them to bring homes to life at lightning speed–100x faster than CAD–with a groundbreaking, automation-powered tool and manage every possible option, elevation, and configuration in a single model without the repetitive work and endless files.

Higharc’s solution automatically produces everything needed to design, sell, and build homes at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional software. This also enables buyers to configure their new home using online 3D models and dramatically speeds up the builder’s ability to get these homes to market.
