Constructech magazine is pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Constructech Vision Awards. For the past 18 years, the Constructech Vision Awards have celebrated the achievements of construction companies that have leveraged technology in innovative ways to solve operational challenges and improve their bottomlines.
