Competing against hundreds of nominees, HomeSphere was recognized for its innovative product – a digital marketplace that facilitates connections between homebuilders and product manufacturers – as well as its notable achievements, challenges it surmounted, strong financial performance and commitment to building a better Colorado.
According to HomeSphere CEO Glenn Renner, "We have integrated a winning combination of our unique data, highly effective programs, experienced people in major construction markets, and the newest technology to better serve the residential homebuilding community."
Already the leading platform connecting residential builders and building product manufacturers through people, programs and technology, HomeSphere rolled out a paradigm-changing platform in late 2017. Lauded by customers and the industry, the new platform allows the company to create a digital inventory of the products in every home built by their more than 2,500 participating builders.
HomeSphere was also recognized for its commitment to help Coloradans have a safe and affordable home. Its team of 63 employees supports severely wounded Colorado veterans through the nonprofit Homes For Our Troops (HFOT). The HomeSphere team fundraises for the non-profit, helps to build the modified homes, and connects HFOT with manufacturers that want to donate in-kind supplies.
The ColoradoBiz Award for top Construction and Engineering Company marks the third award HomeSphere has won in 2018. It was included in Constructech's list of Top 50 Construction Tech Companies of 2018 and its new homebuilder system was named Constructech Magazine's 2018 Top Residential Product.
HomeSphere is the construction industry's only direct channel to the largest community of homebuilders in the United States. Builders use HomeSphere's tools and services to discover the right products for the homes they build, earn incentives on more than 1,500 building products from foundation to finish, and develop long-lasting relationships with building product manufacturers. HomeSphere's 2,500 builder members construct and close over 17 percent of all homes built.
