A new survey of building owners and contractors highlights the challenges of managing construction projects when software applications lack automated data exchange processes.
The report, “Connecting Owners and Contractors: How Technology Drives Connected Construction,” was released by e-Builder, a Trimble Company, and Dodge Data & Analytics. It is based on responses to online surveys last Spring from 112 contracting companies and 98 building owners. Nearly three-quarters of the contractor respondents identify themselves as GCs. Sixty-nine percent of the owners operate within the public sector, and most focus on education, government, or healthcare projects.
