DENVER – May 1, 2013 – Prescient, an innovative software and structural system manufacturing company, has been named a 2013 Colorado Companies to Watch finalist by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and the Edward Lowe Foundation.
Prescient’s integrated and standardized architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) platform streamlines the AEC process of multi-unit buildings such as apartments, condos, senior/assisted living complexes, hotels, college dormitories and army barracks. The company’s proprietary software integrates the design and engineering of its framing system with project plans during the architectural design process. Once the software designs and engineers a building’s structure, it then communicates a precise bill of materials back to Prescient for design-to-production manufacturing. Prescient then delivers and installs the panelized structural system for a turnkey, fully integrated solution that saves time and money.
“Prescient changes the way the AEC industries approach the design and construction of the build environment. Standardization and integration create a better platform for collaboration in the complex process of design, engineering, and construction,” said John Vanker, CEO and co-founder of Prescient.
Vanker also noted that a majority of Prescient’s materials are supplied and processed in Colorado and the company plans to continue hiring throughout 2013.
Colorado Companies to Watch honors second-stage companies that develop valuable products and services, create quality jobs, enrich communities and create new industries throughout Colorado. The yearlong program is hosted by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and the Edward Lowe Foundation.
“Colorado Companies to Watch is pleased to recognize Prescient as a finalist for 2013. Prescient’s innovative steel framing system has allowed the company to make a significant impact in the residential construction industry. We are proud of Prescient’s continued growth in Colorado,” said Sam Bailey, program director of Colorado Companies to Watch.
