Derived from the Hawaiian word for “platform”, Kahua was founded in 2009 by seven industry veterans who have been committed to improving productivity in the Construction industry for over 20 years. Prior to founding Kahua, the founders started Constructware in 1997 which offered the construction industry’s first internet-based collaborative project management solution. By 2006 Constructware had been implemented by over 400 customers and was recognized as one of the earliest and most successful Cloud-based solutions on the market. Constructware was acquired by Autodesk that same year.
In 2009, seven members of the legacy Constructware team decided to form a new company, Kahua, whose purpose was to build and launch the next generation project management and collaboration solution for real estate, design, engineering, construction, and operations. This team has over 100 years combined experience in implementing cloud-based solutions and completed its first full production release in 2014. Today Kahua has over 1,000 customers ranging from the largest owners and general contractors to small subcontractors. Additionally, there are over 50 apps in Kahua’s public kStore and over 100 private applications that have been developed by customers or certified Kahua Partners.
Kahua is reinventing the way companies manage and collaborate on projects by providing a solution that solves the major problems associated with legacy document management and project team collaboration solutions.
