Zoom Digital Meeting

Innovation as a Service

There are many factors that can drive innovation in construction, including advances in technology, changing market demands, regulatory changes, and shifts in industry trends. In order to encourage innovation, many construction firms and organizations adopt strategies such as research and development, collaboration with other industry partners, and the adoption of best practices and standards. January’s E&C Tech Adoption Leaders Forum attendees will hear from Victoria Smith, Innovation Program Manager at STO Building Group. STO Building Group is a family of companies that provides a complete range of services, from site selection analysis, design constructability review and aesthetic enhancements to interior fit-outs, new building construction, and building infrastructure upgrades and modernization. With annual revenues of nearly to $10B, innovation has been a focal point in their long term strategy for solving the industry’s biggest challenges and finding the best ways to deliver projects for their clients. This call will examine their approach to innovation and how they distinguish innovation from invention.
