The 2016 Construction Technology Report Coming Soon!
The 2016 Construction Technology Report is coming soon, very soon and we’re excited to share the compelling results. The 2016 survey ended up producing over 2,600 total responses, proving this year’s results will provide more insight than any previous report. JBKnowledge would like to thank everyone who completed this year’s Construction Technology Survey, you rocked our technology socks off! The 2016 report, coming later this Fall 2016, will address eight main topics for construction companies: IT budget, IT staff, cloud security, mobile strategy, technology integrations, software and mobile apps in use, BIM/VDC strategy and emerging tech.
We look forward to sharing the results! In the meantime, since we all know waiting isn’t fun, here are some statistics from our initial analysis of the 2016 survey. Also, be sure to check out previous report results, submit your information to receive the 2016 Report when it becomes available, or sign up to receive our weekly construction tech newsletter by subscribing to our blog.

Here are a few 2016 Construction Technology Survey stats to hold you over….
- Corporate Revenue Spent On IT: 56% Spend less than 1 percent, 14% Spend 1 percent, and 7% Spend 2 percent
Insight – The percentage of construction companies spending 1% or less on IT continues to grow. The percentage increased from 34% in 2015 to 56% in 2016.
- Dedicated Virtual Design & Construction Department: BIM Department (46%), 1-2 guys capable of BIM work (22%), Do not bid on projects involving BIM (12%)
Insight – 22% of construction companies only have 1-2 employees that can work within BIM! This craft is advancing rapidly, so contractors need to ensure they set aside resources to develop their internal staff to keep up with this growing requirement from owners.
- Mobile Operating Systems In Use: iOS (65%), Windows (40%), Android (34%)
Insight – Windows operating system usage increased by more than 20% in 2016. This is likely attributable to the Surface Pro release.
- The Most Limiting Factor In Adopting New Technology: Lack of staff to support the technology (40%), Budget (37%), Employee Hesitance (31%)
Insight – Employee Hesitance replaced last year’s third most popular answer Management Hesitance. This shift may be attributable to management finally seeing value in technology investments.
- Five Of The Top Mobile Apps: AutoCAD 360, BIM 360, BlueBeam, Plangrid, Procore
Insight – BIM and plan file management continues to lead the way in mobile application
needs and usage.
