Round up: Modular gets funded, tech acquisition and launches

Some of these companies might look familiar — we’re doing a little reminiscing with this week’s round up of news and announcements from members of the BuiltWorlds network. Want to be included? Send your press releases or story ideas to news@builtworlds.com.

1. FULL STACK MODULAR RAISES SERIES A

We visited Krulak’s facility last month.

Amidst ongoing growth out of their Brooklyn facility, Full Stack Modular raised $6 million in Series A funding. Led by McCourt Global, investors include real estate industry leaders Lawrence Benenson, Lloyd Goldman, Jonathan Grunzweig, Jonathan Langer, and Daniel Levene. The company will use the money to increase the scale of their production and facilitate growth to the west coast and abroad. Full Stack CEO Roger Krulak caught up with BuiltWorlds last month here.

2. ASSEMBLE SYSTEMS ROLLS OUT 2D SMARTSHEETS

Assemble Systems launched a new 2D SmartSheets component for their construction data program. These 2D models can be viewed within Assemble alongside the already integrated 3D models. By combining the two views, Assemble hopes to continue to improve construction project workflows and functionality of mobile blueprints.

We love seeing tech companies like Assemble grow over the years. Check out this episode of BW Sessions, featuring Assemble.

3) BRIDGIT IS NOW ON ANDROID

Bridgit’s Alannah Bird and Lauren Hasegawa at our event in 2014.

If you’ve been following BuiltWorlds since our fledgling days (when we were still called Burnham Works, even), you might remember when Bridgit first stepped onto the scene back in 2014. Co-founder Lauren Lake came to speak at one of our first “Speak & Connect” events in 2014. Here’s a recap of that event.

Now, the punchlist software company released a mobile application for Android. Up until now, Bridgit Closeout was only available for iOS devices. Now, Android users will have access to upgraded features compared to the web app, such as photo usage and real time editing.

4) WEWORK ACQUIRES FIELDLENS

FieldLens at our 2015 All Hands on Tech event

New York-based WeWork, primarily known for its coworking spaces, has used some of its venture funding to buy mobile project management platform FieldLens. The Fieldlens app synchronizes jobsite communication to improve efficiency and information access. WeWork has been using the application for years, and this acquisition comes at a time when they are renovating and building many properties.

FieldLens is no stranger to BuiltWorlds — co-founder Doug Chambers spoke at our first Summit last year. Check out our past coverage on the company here.
