CAROL STREAM, Ill. (PRWEB) August 24, 2018
Recognizing the most innovative construction companies in the world, Constructech magazine announces the winners of the 2018 Constructech Vision Awards, which were honored at a dinner last night at the DoubleTree By Hilton Chicago – Arlington Heights, Ill.
Now in its 19th year, the Constructech Vision Awards honor companies that are using emerging technology in a pioneering way to solve a challenge or to transform the industry. Companies eligible to submit for this competition include residential, commercial, and heavy construction businesses, professionals in all trades, architectural and engineering firms, corporate owners, facility management, government agencies, and land developers.
The winners were selected by a group of industry experts, analysts, professors, and consultants based on the construction company’s ability to solve a business problem, use technology in a unique way, and the ROI (return on investment) of the solution. Companies are eligible for a Gold, Silver, or Bronze in their category. Additionally, Constructech recognizes the hardware and software companies that helped enable the construction company to receive its award.
“This year we had the largest pool of entries by construction companies, with a focus on improving their ability to respond to customer demands through the use of emerging technology and transforming their businesses all while keeping their workers safe at the jobsite,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Constructech magazine and president of Specialty Publishing Media. Although not every company that nominated made it to the podium this year, the ones that are earning industry accolades are demonstrating how critical technology is in building upon a new world economy.”
