My name is Chris O’Halloran and I left school and completed a carpentry apprenticeship in 1998 with my old man. I worked my way up and became a licensed Builder and currently hold a builders licence in Queensland and Victoria.
One of the key factors in holding back my building company growing to where I wanted it, was that I simply couldn’t manage the site work and the paperwork like estimating and chasing work.
I realised that growing a building company came down to this: The more I estimated, the more work I won.
So I would spend nights and weekends doing takeoffs and estimates, so that during the day, I could still get paid to actually build. I soon got jack of this, had no time for camping, fishing and spending time with family and friends..
So I created Takeoffs.io to automate my takeoffs, giving me my life back. I realised that with a few improvement and changes, I could make it available to other builders and tradies and help them get their weekends back also.
My focus now is getting the word out there, that there is a better way to do takeoffs. With takeoffs.io, all you need to do is upload your plans, and within 1 week, your takeoff or estimate is sent back completed…. It’s a game changer.
