Welcome to the 2020 Smart Jobsite 50 List!
The construction jobsite is an ever-changing, dynamic, and, at times, dangerous, work environment – but the construction technology players are stepping up to answer the call. On the heels of Day 3 of the 2020 Project Delivery Conference, where we dove into the processes and technology that leading industry players are leveraging to make their jobsites “smarter,” we’re highlighting the many different providers that are making it safer, controlled, and more efficient.
The Smart Jobsite 50 List features solutions leveraged on the jobsite that specifically address the management and execution of Built World construction projects. The list was compiled using the results of the 2020 BW Benchmarking Program and other feedback from BW Members. For certain categories, the most widely-utilized providers are highlighted. The list includes leading companies and up-and-coming providers helping built industry players manage and execute their projects across ten categories:
- Equipment Management
- Field Management
- Jobsite Monitoring
- Materials Management
- Reality Capture & Progress Documentation
- Tool Management
