The key to achieving affordability is through better project management and increased construction efficiency. Those are two areas we have been focused on (obsessively so) since our beginning in 1991 (when we built and developed a single family for-sale community in Southwest Reno).
Central to our project management approach is OurTec. It’s a suite of software programs that are designed exclusively by and for Pacific West with a focus on building multifamily properties.
A $4.5 million investment, OurTec ties together the industry’s most popular and powerful third-party programs, including:
Primavera™ Time Management Software
Sage Precision Estimating by Oracle
Sage Accounting by Oracle
MiTek Virtual Plant Software
Everyone associated with a project has free use of our easy-to-learn system. It provides project management, scheduling, and a secure, real-time exchange of information.
OurTec also includes a sophisticated financial modeling system that helps eliminate guessing. It’s easy to use and will instantly give prospective investors real world numbers for any amount of variables (run models for different investment levels, densities, products, time schedules). It can be used in the pre-planning stages to help project partners determine the ideal market and plans to use (a powerful tool for sales representatives and Realtors, as well as project partners). It provides a real look at the potential for success
