Blue Fingerprint Technology Rose Villa Portland, Oregon


Residents who move into Rose Villa are able to pick from many home design options using Blue Fingerprint Technology, which immediately tells them the actual price of their selection and alerts the contractor to their custom choices. Canvis, a soft- ware company in Des Moines, Iowa, developed this innovative technology.


“Making your home your home is really important to people,” said Sadie Bach, Rose Villa transitions coordinator. Bach worked with each resident to discuss every design option and customize their home. “Many residents are moving from a home they have been in as long as 50 years,” Bach said. “Personalizing their new home and making it their own is important.” Residents were offered four different palettes of coordinat-


ed finishes developed by Myhre Group Architects in Portland. “We were tasked with creating multiple packages and options without it being overwhelming,” said Lisa Warnock, principal at Myhre Group. One of the challenges was providing enough options without making it difficult for the residents to make a decision. Another challenge was the contractor had to pre-price each possible option that a resident could choose. Customized options included flooring, lighting, paint, storage, kitchen cabinets, sinks, blinds, pet fencing and even specialty toilets, Bach said. And, if the resident didn’t like the options offered, they could create their own. “Residents could elect to go fully custom and engage with the architect,” Warnock said. For instance, one resident loved


the color green and that wasn’t provided as an option so that resident worked with Myhre Group to create it. Another couple wanted their home to look like a loft so Myhre custom designed their home to be open with fewer walls, Warnock said. Although all the residences are built and customized, and everyone has moved in, if someone was to move out, a new res- ident would have the same opportunity to use Blue Fingerprint Technology and customize their home, Bach said. Another benefit of the technology, Bach said, is it documents every option the resident picks and keeps it organized, from the biggest to the smallest request. When building the residenc- es, contractors would print out the information and refer back to it. Bach also used it to do walk-throughs when she double checked each home before residents moved in. “It provided a great checklist,” Bach said.
