Construction FAQs

For Construction Projects

How can coUrbanize help my construction project?

coUrbanize is an online community engagement platform for real estate developers and planners. Our platform gives developers the tools to control the conversation about their projects, from conception to approval to ribbon cutting.

On coUrbanize, developers build community support and streamline communications, even after groundbreaking takes place. Visualizations and a moderated community forum make it easy to proactively update community members and publicly address complaints, reducing the volume of emails and calls that staff need to manage (and the number of complaints that are sent to the city).

coUrbanize also equips developers to generate excitement for projects within communities and gather interest for residential and retail. The platform accelerates project timelines and makes the construction process inclusive – all with less opposition and more efficient outreach.

How is coUrbanize different from a static website?

coUrbanize offers more than just a space to upload information. The platform is purpose-built for real estate, and comes with functionality to match. Built-in tools for email outreach, project updates, and interactive visuals make it easy to share the information that stakeholders need to know. These features, paired with on-site signage and SMS functionality, help developers reach the audiences that matter most: the people who actually spend time where projects are being built.

Unlike a static website, setup for a coUrbanize construction project is quick and easy. A project can get up and running on coUrbanize in less than a day, and in most cases under a couple hours.

How much time does it take to manage a coUrbanize project?

The coUrbanize platform connects projects with a broader audience and facilitates one-to-many communication through email updates and a moderated discussion forum. Customers spend as little as 15 minutes a week managing their site, and have access to a library of best practices that make the process even easier.

Why do I need coUrbanize if I have strong community connections?

coUrbanize is a technology platform to optimize those strong community connections while reaching everyone who is impacted by the construction process. Developers who use coUrbanize during construction can address concerns quickly online, reducing the spread of misinformation and making in-person meetings more effective. Paired with on-site engagement tools like SMS, developers connect directly with community members to ensure a smooth construction process.
