Carol Stream, Ill. – Oct. 6, 2014 – Construction companies that have identified the right technology solution will find success. And this past Friday, companies that have done just that were named 2014 Vision Award winners by Constructech magazine. This year, these winners and their solution providers gathered at the Sofitel San Francisco Bay in California, following Technology Day.

The Constructech Vision Awards acknowledge companies that have stayed up-to-date on the latest trends and products in order to make decisions that have helped their businesses succeed and thrive.

Companies eligible to submit for this competition include residential construction, commercial, and heavy construction businesses, professionals in all trades, architectural and engineering firms, corporate owners, facility management companies, government agencies, and land developers.

“From commercial to residential, owner to contractor, there is one point they can all agree on: It is all about the data. How do you harness it? What insights can it provide on a job? How can it make a company more profitable?” said Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech. “The 2014 Vision Award winners have found ways to answer these questions, and it can be seen in their success.”
