Building Materials Holding Corp. Hones Focus on High-Volume Builders

Building Materials Holding Corp., San Francisco, CA, ($2.9 billion in 2005 sales) provider of construction services and building materials to professional residential builders and contractors, has launched SelectBuild Construction, Inc., as a successor to BMC Construction. SelectBuild will be focused on the needs of high-volume production homebuilders.

Beginning in 1999, BMC Construction has worked with industry trade partners, serving clients in key markets in Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada and Virginia. Now, the building blocks for this business are assembled, and the company is ready to unite under one business model and become SelectBuild, BMHC reports.

“We visualized a world-class residential construction management company serving high-volume production homebuilders, and over the last several years, beginning with our initial investment in Knipp Brothers Industries, have carefully selected the industry’s best trade partners to realize that vision,” said SelectBuild President and CEO Michael Mahre.

In today’s industry environment, high-volume production homebuilders are faced with many production challenges, including managing dozens of trade partners and thousands of material items while trying to minimize schedule slippages, contain costs, limit waste, control quality and mitigate product and labor risks, BMHC says in a release.

SelectBuild’s integrated services include: project estimating, structural engineering, materials procurement and handling, component manufacturing, shell construction, rough framing assembly, millwork installation, lumber distribution, plumbing installation, windows installation, HVAC installation, stucco, lath and plaster installation, and residential concrete foundation systems.

SelectBuild combines the jobsite experience of several companies, including KBI Construction, KBI Mechanical, KBI Stucco, KBI Norcal, Total Concrete, WBC Construction, WBC Mid-Atlantic, RCI Construction, Riggs Plumbing, A-1 Building Components, BBP Companies, Campbell Companies, HnR Framing Systems, Home Building Components, TWF Construction, MWB Building Contractors and Boulders West Components.
