BuiltSpace is transforming how facilities are managed by creating a secure, but shared, building management platform for operations and maintenance. Founded by Rick Rolston, who has over 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur in delivering technology solutions for the construction industry, BuiltSpace is the Internet of Things for eco-friendly and cost effective facility management.
BuiltSpace has reached a pivotal point for growth and expansion. While the company has seen early success in the Canadian market, the executive team has their sights on the U.S. market and would like to explore other industries. Rick selected AdvisoryCloud to find advisors that could provide the knowledge, expertise, and guidance to reach these specific goals.
“With bringing on an advisory board, I want to focus on penetrating the market with a new, transformational idea. I want to explore how BuiltSpace can be implemented within different industries, and how we can grow and incorporate as many markets as possible,” said Rick Rolston.
Rick wanted to build an advisory board that had diversity among executives with experience in real estate, facility management, construction, and other fields relevant to BuiltSpace’s purpose. Rick received over 150 applicants within only a few weeks of posting his advisor opportunity on AdvisoryCloud’ platform. He then spent two weeks filtering through applications and selected 18 of the best candidates for interviews. Rick found AdvisoryCloud platform to be a valuable resource for guiding him to highly qualified executive advisors and managing the selection process.
“When initially speaking with the candidates, I wanted to know what drove their interest in applying for this role. I also wanted to hear about their relevant experiences, and how much time they would be willing to commit to this project. I was thrilled with the high quality talent brought to me through AdvisoryCloud. They exceeded my expectations,” said Rick.
In just three months time, Rick successfully built BuiltSpace’s first advisory board comprised of individuals from many different professional backgrounds including government, retail, service, security, finance, marketing, and technology. His board members are distinguished executives from industry-leading companies including Delta Airlines, McKinstry Co., and Simon Property Group. Rick holds monthly meetings with his entire team and is planning a summer retreat for everyone to gather and connect face-to-face.
BuiltSpace is a service man- agement platform that captures data from people performing work in facilities by digitizing processes, such as preventative maintenance, inspections, work orders, or safety procedures and capturing and organizing that into permanent digital service records that are accessible from mobile phones or computers.
BuiltSpace improves energy efficiency, reduces administrative and service operations costs and offers real-time responsive processes to building owners, managers, tenants and service personnel.
