Think construction technology does not apply to you? Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?

  • I wonder what role technology will play in the future of construction?
  • Could I be doing more with less software?
  • What language should I use in a technology contract with a consultant?
  • Could I be using BIM better in Business Development?

If so, then you need to save the date for an exciting new construction technology conference that will address these questions and many more!
