Emerging Trends: Venture Capital Investment in Construction Tech
Nov 7, 2019
The construction technology sector is in a curious position right now. Rapid growth in recent years signals strong interest from everyone within the long and complex construction cycle, however, sheer market size means the market is far from saturated. The industry’s biggest players are already building innovative hardware and software solutions related to construction, building, and infrastructure, yet there are still plenty of unsolved pain points for developers. Venture capital investments have more than doubled every year for the past eight years, but for those paying attention, there is still ample room for early adopter advantages.

Construction Technology Trends: Best of Breed Apps
May 28, 2019
From the dawn of time (or at least whenever marketing was invented), there have been products out there claiming to be the cure-all, silver bullet solution. They offer answers to all problems, and when advertised, you see phrases like, "never buy another in your life!" or "the last product you will ever need!" but in reality, the majority of these all-in-one solutions will likely give a weak amount of assistance to a variety of issues. For the construction industry, all-in-one software is everywhere you look. The big names in construction tech all offer an all-inclusive solution, and most contractors have tried at least one of them. The issue is, once purchased these all-in-one solutions rarely deliver on their lofty claims. You bought a miracle cure, and ended up getting a decent swig of something that, while it doesn't necessarily hurt, doesn't come close to curing all those diseases listed on the bottle.

AN and Tech+ Expo spoke with Skanska’s Tony Colonna, Senior Vice President of Innovative Construction Solutions and Albert Zulps, Regional Director, Virtual Design and Construction to get their insight into how technology is shaping projects today.
