Constructech Announces Vision Award Winners for 2012

CAROL STREAM, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The industry’s leading construction firms gathered at the San Mateo Marriott in California this past Friday to discover which builders, contractors, and corporate owners would be named this year’s Constructech Vision Award winners.

The Constructech Vision Awards honor companies that have realized the advantages of applying advanced technologies to their everyday businesses. In addition to honoring builders and contractors, Constructech magazine also recognized the hardware and software suppliers that enabled each construction company to achieve its goals.

Companies eligible to participate include residential, commercial, and heavy construction firms, professionals in all trades, architectural and engineering firms, corporate owners, facility management companies, government agencies, and land developers.

The 2012 Vision Awards ceremony was held following Constructech’s annual Technology Day event. This year’s Technology Day theme was ‘Flash Forward IT,’ which centered on the question: “What will your IT department look like in 3-5 years?” This year’s Vision Awards winners proved they have been thinking about the exact question—and have even taken great strides to reach the answer.

“The Vision Awards have a steep tradition rooted in honoring the most forward-thinking, innovative companies in the construction industry. Make no mistake, the 2012 winners carry on this stellar tradition,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech. “These companies have implemented technology solutions that are improving their businesses far beyond what we could have even imagined just a few years ago. Now, with an eye on tomorrow, they are using technology to serve as a strong foundation as we advance the future of IT in the industry.”
