Carol Stream, Ill. – March 27, 2018 – Constructech congratulates the construction industry for its vision for innovation. This year saw the greatest number of entries by construction companies for the Constructech Vision Awards entries, with a keen focus on innovation, safety, and improving business.

“I am so enamored by the response we have received from this year’s Constructech Vision Awards,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech magazine, and president, Specialty Publishing Media. “Construction companies recognize that now is the time, and they are ready to share their stories with the world.”

This year Constructech also has more industry analysts and professors participating as judges for all of the entries from around the country. These experts scrutinize each entry, looking for quantifiable results that demonstrate how construction companies are using technologies to achieve real benefits within residential, commercial, and heavy highway. This year Constructech received entries from the smallest subcontracting companies to some of the largest GCs and builders nationally, and even globally.

The Constructech Vision Awards will be announced at a dinner following the Constructech Technology Day conference, which will be held in Chicago, Ill., this mid-August. The winners will also be published in the Winter issue of Constructech magazine.

With the success of this program, Constructech also recently introduced the first annual Constructech Best Team of the Year Awards that demonstrate construction companies are leveraging the skills required for craft positions alongside of the emergence of technology to help solve the construction workforce shortage. There are four different categories to submit in including: Best Team by Region Award, Educational Program Award, Individual Ideas Award, and Lifetime Achievement Award. Companies can submit for the awards online.
