Discover Your Right Next Steps

Who We Are

Disruption and constraints are the new buzz words in modern homebuilding. You and your team are struggling to capitalize on the new and growing opportunities you see all around you. You know you and your folks can do more, but you aren’t sure how to get from here to there, how to take that right next step.

Leveraging over 50 years of experience in the construction industry with specialized focus in Operations including Supply Chain, Purchasing, Estimating, KPI/Metric Development, Job Starts, Production, and Data Management, The Mainspring Group is a specialty firm focused on helping private regional homebuilders identify and take those right next steps.

In this way, we’re like a fast-forward button for those projects that just can’t get off the shelf and into the field. We can help your team accomplish what your organization needs beyond that daily grind, and along the way we can prepare them for the next level of operational excellence.   

We believe every builder is somewhere on a continuum from startup to scale-ready and we love doing the trench work of understanding your current operational reality, aligning around your full potential, and then helping deliver measurable and consistent results.

What We Do

First Step

We start with where you are. We don’t pretend to know the current state of your operations, so to be an effective partner, we begin each engagement with a structured and in-depth analysis of all critical operational processes bringing light and clarity to the starting point for all our discussions. Our goal is to determine the greatest opportunities for your growth and a keen understanding of your threats and the landmines to avoid as you take the next steps on your journey.

The Journey

Once the analysis is complete, we evaluate our findings against best practices, industry benchmarks, and productivity KPIs to establish points of reference for all processes and the quality of their current results. Then we pull together with you to review these findings and go over our initial recommendations, what we call the “roadmap.” The alignment coming from these discussions allows us to be both effective and efficient as we begin to engage with your team members.


With the roadmap in hand, we begin to work alongside you to execute. We’ll work with you in getting your systems and operations running with excellence and bringing your team along the way. We can help you establish metrics and dashboards, purge your ERP of the noise, and provide coaching to your operation leaders to ensure they are equipped to make decisions and execute themselves. This focus on execution multiplies your team’s talent and results and it is truly what we love the most.
