Erickson Companies

In their early days, Erickson helped pioneer the concept of complete framing systems. Recognizing an opportunity to increase efficiency and quality during the ‘90s, the company transitioned from stick-framing to panelized framing. For their customers, this method dramatically reduced construction time, material waste, labor inputs and carrying costs, while improving quality.

Fast forward to today, and Erickson saw an even greater opportunity to innovate with Synergos.

Erickson brings complete framing solutions for residential and multi-family home builders. Through panelized framing construction services and truss designers, multiple solutions are available for builders like you, your trade partners and your home buyers. Through our computer-assisted approach the process begins with our in-house design and engineering teams.

Austin Companies

In 1997, Toby Thomas saw there was a need in the residential electrical market for a company that could provide a great service at a fair price. Toby grew his business to be Arizona’s #1 residential electrical contractor by building strong relationships with his customers and surrounding himself with a support team of like-minded customer service-oriented professionals.

As Austin Companies grew to include Concrete and HVAC businesses, they continued providing the best customer service to customers no matter what. It doesn’t matter if they were hired to wire 1000 homes a year or 1, customers have always been treated like they are their only client. Austin Companies bring this same level of elite services at fair pricing to Synergos – and will always look out for the best interests of their customers.

Reduce Cycle Times

Synergos reduces residential construction cycle times by working directly with its family of trade partners. Together, we actively identify and eliminate recurring bottlenecks and redundancies in the building process. The key is owning the supervisory role on front end work, so we can synchronize efforts across the entire process and all teams. Having a singular, shared philosophy amongst the Synergos trade partners not only makes projects as efficient as possible–it improves the quality of the final product.

Save on overhead

By focusing on reduction in cycle times, residential construction companies that work with Synergos save money on overhead through more efficient resource allocations and value engineering. Additionally, through tech-enabled manufacturing processes, Synergos customers gain more precision in the materials used, with the added benefit of increased worker safety because of fewer “manual workarounds.”

Schedule Predictably

Since Synergos offers a single contact solution for the process, there is greater ease in managing and scheduling the construction trade partners. In addition, with more visibility into scheduling and efficiency in the entire process, there is greater assurance and predictability for what matters most to homebuilders: nailing delivery dates.
