How We Got Started

Mark Hornbuckle began HB NEXT in 1999 as a construction consulting, inspection and training company. Before HB NEXT began, Mark Hornbuckle worked for 20 years with one of largest commercial general contractors in the southeast as a General Superintendent. He headed-up many projects including Concourse ‘E’ at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport where, at peak, he was responsible for 1,500 workers who were striving to complete the construction of the project. This project was completed in 1994 with no fatalities.

Throughout his career, Mark attended various training classes and used different construction support services and, for the most part, these classes or services were being delivered by regulatory agencies, academia or insurance companies, with little to no, on-the-job experience. This lack of jobsite knowledge with classes or services propelled Mark to make a difference in the construction support industry. Thus, the goal of HB NEXT began to bring field experts to train those coming into the construction industry and support the needs of construction firms with quality safety, environmental, training, and regulatory legal services.

HB NEXT knew the value of being able to provide effective data management support to construction firms. This would inevitably increase a company’s ROI and keep employees safe.

How We Grew

In 2005, HB NEXT took the goal of offering top quality field data management to the next level with the creation and development of SequenceSM, a cloud-based field data management software for safety, environmental services, training and utility services. SequenceSM was launched by Tony Middlebrooks. Tony started his computer career in 1981 and spent his first 10 years working with one of the largest technology companies in the U.S.

In 1991, Tony became involved in large-scale Software / ERP Development projects for the Telecom industry and up until 1998 worked as a software design professional. With the emergence of the World Wide Web, Tony stepped out and started his own technology firm (M2 Technologies) in 1998, specializing in portal based software solutions for non-profit associations. This company was sold in 2001.

In 2003, Tony started working on an internet software model that would allow construction companies to better manage regulatory data associated with OSHA and EPA Stormwater rules and regulations which became SequenceSM. Since 2005, SequenceSM has grown and diversified into numerous other field and office management solutions.
