Construction Loan Management to Help You Build a Better Bank

Years ago, lenders used spreadsheets and manually entered calculations in order to keep up with the complex and tedious details of each and every construction loan they managed. It could take days to receive inspection details and approve draw requests. Fast forward to today, where bankers have custom reports at their fingertips and inspections can submit details from the construction site.

We created BankLabs Construct to streamline the construction loan management process, so bankers could spend less time on spreadsheets and get back to serving their communities. With automated draw exports, budget calculations, and inspections, bankers are adding days of interest income back to each draw. At the same time, bankers are seeing a stronger relationship with borrowers, builders, and other stakeholders that appreciate having an efficient, easy digital solution to work with.

Construction Loan Management Process: How To Modernize and Streamline

The days of waiting a week for draw approvals and inspections are gone. Banks are now using construction loan management software like Construct to streamline their draw approval process. Our digital workflow accelerates draw cycle times, providing approvals days after than the manual process and can increase draw interest by 8-12%. 

Automated inspections also accelerate the draw approval process by instantly providing bankers with the information they need to fund a draw request quickly. This can add additional days of interest income to every draw. These features, combined with digital notifications, are helping over 150 banks streamline and modernize their construction loan management process today.

Manage Your Construction Loans Effectively


The amount of manual data entry needed to manage a construction loan portfolio can be daunting, not to mention ineffective. Without constant analysis, problems can arise within a spreadsheet without an admin noticing. Construct uses budget and loan data imports to reduce the amount of time needed to enter data into the system. The ability to upload loan data into BankLabs Construct eliminates the need to manually re-enter information and reduces the risk of human error.

Our automatic budget calculations feature automatically calculates remaining budgets based on draws, further reducing the risk of human error and allows bankers to spend less time doing manual calculations.
