Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) recently announced the launch of its inaugural Tech Alliance consortium to help improve utilization of technology and innovative digital solutions for ABC contractor members.
“The need for technological solutions—both big and small—in the construction industry is clear, especially given changing work conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Matt Abeles, ABC’s vice president of construction technology and innovation. “I look forward to the exceptional products, education and dialogue the Tech Alliance companies will bring to ABC members and our evolving industry, especially as we continue to implement technology to revolutionize the design, build and delivery process."
The Tech Alliance plans to introduce small- and mid-sized contractors and subcontractors to construction technology solutions for: bidding, billing, BIM, compliance, connected equipment, CRM, field collaboration, job costing, jobsite monitoring, preconstruction, project management, safety analytics, security, service software, subcontractor management and time tracking, among others.
As part of the new initiative, a Construction Technology and Innovation Committee will help guide future Tech Alliance partnerships, serve as a bridge to the technology community and help ABC contractors meet the needs of a 21st century workforce, business model and overall construction industry.
The 13-company team will include: Autodesk, BuildOps, Flashtract, myComply, Penta, Procore, ProEst, Real Time Risk Solutions, Riskcast, Safesite, StructionSite, SubHQ and Tenna.
The alliance will be led by Matthew Abeles, ABC vice president of construction technology and innovation.
