The idea for ArchiPro evolved out of our own building challenges
We found ourselves endlessly searching for inspiration and saving images to folders, but lacking the practical details needed for implementation in our own projects. Who was the architect? Which builder did they use? What timber was used in the cladding? Where was that beautiful couch from? We also quickly realised there was no central point for people to easily find trusted architectural products and skilled trade professionals. The whole process felt like a maze with no clear path to success and a lot of traps along the way. The frustration sparked an innovative idea and we set out to revolutionise the design and build industry.
Our dream was to create a platform that would simplify the entire building process, bringing together all facets of design and construction in one beautifully designed space. With our own experience building, plus a background in selling products to specifiers, builders and homeowners, Brittany and I were well placed to understand and solve the challenges of marketing professional services and products to people building.
In 2014, ArchiPro was born in New Zealand, with three pillars at its core: Products, Professionals, and Projects. These pillars formed the foundation of our mission to empower people to create better spaces where life could be experienced to the fullest. We envisioned a future where everyone could access high-quality products and skilled professionals, while also providing a source of inspiration and best practices for the industry as a whole. As ArchiPro has evolved, we’ve expanded the platform’s functionality, introducing features such as product tagging and Business Analytics. In 2021, ArchiPro launched into Australia, supported by a passionate team in Sydney and Melbourne. And now in 2023 we’ve launched ArchiPro 3.0, the next generation of our platform.
Today, I’m proud to say ArchiPro has bridged the gap between inspiration and practicality, making it the go-to platform for individuals seeking to create exceptional spaces. With every connection made, every project completed, and every life enhanced, ArchiPro continues to shape the buildings that will be admired and celebrated for generations to come.
