Innovation in Construction Is a Team Sport

I have always loved the tran­si­tion seasons of fall and spring the most because of the promise of something new coming. The end of the year is another time of tran­si­tion where we focus on what has been accom­plished, and then turn our attention to the great things that lie ahead. We had a chance to look back over the past several years at some of the more important projects we have been fortunate to be a part of and the lessons learned in a recent blog post.

Each of the projects high­light­ed in that blog post has helped to confirm the value that an inno­v­a­tive building system like the Bautex Wall System can create for building owners, as well as the entire project team.

However, what we also learned is that inno­va­tion is a team sport. This is espe­cial­ly true in con­struc­tion where archi­tects, con­trac­tors, engineers, owners and man­u­fac­tur­ers must all come together to effec­tive­ly bring new tech­nolo­gies and building processes to bear in order to solve the chal­lenges we face today as an industry.

Your Innovation Engine

At Bautex, we get comments and feedback all the time that we aren’t the typical building materials man­u­fac­tur­ing company. That does not come as a surprise to us given the varied back­ground of our lead­er­ship team that includes financial services, high tech, telecom and large-scale concrete construction. 

We knew that driving new building tech­nolo­gies into a complex, risk-averse and slow-changing industry would require not just new tech­nol­o­gy, but also capable people and effective processes that are sin­gu­lar­ly focused on helping project teams effi­cient­ly deploy the tech­nol­o­gy to drive better outcomes.

At Bautex, we see our role not as simply R&D tech­nol­o­gists, but as providing a complete inno­va­tion engine that includes:

  • The Right Products: We develop building systems that are designed to save projects time and money, AND, at the same time, deliver superior, long-lasting per­for­mance. The Bautex Wall System reduces labor and trades, shortens con­struc­tion schedules, and elim­i­nates costly rework and warranty risk.
  • The Right People: We are a powerful extension to your project team, helping to make design and con­struc­tion simpler and faster for you. The Bautex team is focused on the building science, engi­neer­ing and building codes that drive energy effi­cien­cy, indoor air quality (IAQ), thermal comfort, indoor acousti­cal quality, fire pro­tec­tion, windstorm safety, sus­tain­abil­i­ty and resilience.
  • The Right Processes: You work directly with the Bautex team through the entire life cycle of a project from project eval­u­a­tion, design and engi­neer­ing, con­struc­tion, and through final review and analysis.

Proof is In the Pudding

Proj ARC006 2


At the Texas Society of Archi­tects Annual Con­fer­ence and Design Expo this past October, we received tremen­dous­ly positive feedback on the six con­struc­tion projects that we were high­light­ing. The buildings completed were varied in building type, location and project goals. Value was demon­strat­ed for the building owners, as well as the project teams, involved in the project. 

The sim­plic­i­ty of the Bautex Wall System both in design and in con­struc­tion was expe­ri­enced first-hand. And many different project goals were achieved including low cost and speed of con­struc­tion, energy effi­cien­cy, resilience and indoor envi­ron­men­tal quality.



In the end, sig­nif­i­cant­ly better buildings were designed and built thanks to the inno­v­a­tive products, people and processes that Bautex provides, and through the will­ing­ness of archi­tects, con­trac­tors and owners to invite Bautex to be a part of the project team.

Inno­va­tion in con­struc­tion is a team sport – you need us, and we need you. Bautex is not right for every project, but if you have a 1 – 3 story con­di­tioned building that is early in design, invite us to take a look at the project with you. We want to be part of the inno­va­tion your firm delivers to clients in 2020.
