1 Company Eyeball Drywall Industry Interiors, Walls & Ceilings Company Size 39 Location College Station, TX USA Website Project for A&M University Project Length 19 months Project Value $4 million On Center Software Solutions On-Screen Takeoff® Quick Bid® F ive drywall professionals (E. Fowler, R. Fowler, P. Fowler, T. Frazier, and M. Creed) incorporated in 2002, forming Eyeball Drywall (EBD) which specializes in metal stud framing, drywall, taping, and insulation. The company services Houston, Texas, and surrounding areas. The EBD portfolio of projects includes healthcare, educational, retail, and religious facilities. A major differentiator for EBD is their focus on completing projects on time. This success is attributed to the people who are a part of EBD—this is a family-run business with a great deal of pride in the quality of its work. Automating elements of the drywall business such as quantity takeoff and estimating allows EBD to accurately and timely manage the ongoing change requests that typically accompany large projects such as education and health care facilities. With a client base that provides 75% repeat business, trust and quality are essential DNA components for EyeBall Drywall Co. E D U CAT I O N FAC I L I T I E S Educational Facilities tend to begin with incomplete plans and progress with ever changing requirements. The Memorial Student Center Complex for Texas A&M (MSCC) is the meeting place for the university's student union and serves as the campus 'living room'.The project is a major renovation and expansion of the MSCC originally built in 1951. EBD was able to win the bid because of their competitive pricing and history of successful projects. P R O J E C T C O M P L E X I T Y The MSCC project was bid from incomplete plans. EBD reviewed the plans and knew that this project was one in which it would succeed. The project has had over 2000 change orders for adjustments and EBD has been on top of each one. EBD attributes the success of such a complex project to the automated solutions for doing quantita- tive measurements and estimating. On-time delivery of a project is not by accident.
