2019 was a big year for modular construction. We teamed up with Skender to explore the offsite fabrication and modularization revolution, and to look back at some of the most exciting modular projects of the year.
December 2017 to December 2018 saw a flurry of M&A activity in the construction technology space. Not only did we see the birth of two new “unicorns,” but a few “legacy” technology companies acquired a variety of startup solutions. We set out to figure out why these acquisitions happened and what they mean for the built world moving forward.
The Built World Investment Report Card is meant to summarize where we are as an industry and where we’re going. We’ll cover large-scale themes like the growth in investment entering the space, the solutions that solve pain points in the market, strategic investment and its importance, and vertical integration.
