CG Visions was established in 2000 by Dave Bozell, then a
professor in the Department of Computer Graphics at Purdue University. Bozell’s knowledge
and experience was sought for assistance in integrating light gauge steel panelization
software with an existing manufacturing line. After this first successful consultation
and integration, word spread and demand grew.
Between 2000 and 2002, Bozell asked Cory Shively, Scott Schultz, and Tim Beckman to join his
growing start-up. The partners brought a new mix of ideas and experiences in the digital
media and construction fields. Hard work, initiative, and problem solving drove the team.
As they built their business, they endured offices with no heat where they swapped the space
heater after each song on the radio; a lack of parking, so they shuffled cars every 2 hours
to dodge parking tickets; and leaky roofs which claimed more than a few monitors.
CG Visions was helping clients across the eastern United States with projects such as
apartments, dormitories, and hotels. Leveraging the benefits of Building Information
Modeling (BIM) allowed clients to gain more than they could from the traditional 2D
process of design and construction.
In 2001, after the disaster of 9/11 and a decline in light gauge steel construction, CG Visions
saw an opportunity to expand into the residential building market. With the knowledge of
construction trends and technology, CG Visions began helping residential builders across
the nation understand and adapt to new technologies allowing them to realize savings and
efficiencies through BIM.
In the process, CG Visions realized that residential builders had specific technology needs
that weren’t being met by current tools on the market. The team began developing products
and establishing key partnerships that would help them serve their clients better.
Gone are the days of space heaters, parking tickets, and leaky roofs, but hard work,
initiative, and problem solving have persisted. As the company continues to expand,
CG Visions strives to extend their values to both clients and partners alike.
