New Website Connects Consumers, Designers and Builders

A new photo-oriented online community for the design and building communities called has launched and already has more than 10,000 images in its first four months.

The site aims to build a better solution for consumers to connect with the design and construction communities (residential, commercial and institutional), which are very fragmented and siloed into their specialty niches.

So, Cadreas has built a gateway for the design and construction communities using a large library of images.

Among the ways integrators can have their installations showcased on the website is via CE Pro’s sister publication, Electronic House, which is sharing many of its installations with the new website.

“As soon as Cadreas went live, we surpassed 10,000 images in less than three months,” says Robert Frumkin, CEO Cadreas. “It is very gratifying to see groups like the Pacific Coast Builders Conference and other associations joining Cadreas and posting their images with links to their members.”

The Cadreas DesignGuide allows consumers to create a collection of photos, make notes about the projects, and research the companies and products involved in those projects. This process allows someone to see construction options, resources and products and then decide how to use them on their project.

The website describes itself as an exhaustive project resource to users: “Cadreas aggregates and organizes critical content from and for ALL construction project participants: manufacturers; distributors; retailers; design companies; build companies; property owners; property managers; developers; trade, green and award associations; municipalities; utilities; and service providers such as banks, insurance companies, appraisers, inspectors, etc.”

Users can search the photo galleries via several category filters, including project category, project type, space, view, style and image type.

“Space,” for example, lets you drill down to browse images for all manners of rooms and areas—from media rooms, kitchens to bonus rooms.

“Project type” incorporates broader project targets, like custom home, office or night club. Meanwhile, “Image Type” expands the image galleries to include models, renderings, plansor sketches in the search.

Considering one of the portfolios is called the “Inspiration Gallery,” it sounds like the perfect destination for integrators to reach out and inspire their potential project partners and clients.
