The 2017 Construction Technology Survey is Now Live!
Get excited for the sixth annual 2017 Construction Technology Survey, live now! The annual survey, which began in 2012, has produced key statistical insights into the technology tools, cloud adoption, data security, software integration, mobile policies, emerging technologies and ultimately the role of IT in construction companies. By 2016, the survey grew to over 2,600 building professional participants, allowing for a more comprehensive analysis of the industry.
When asked about technology implementation, one participant of last year’s survey said, “I try to gather as much information as possible and present new technology so I feel like I’m doing my job and staying on top of things. It seems to take years before anyone will listen to a new idea, and by then it’s not new anymore.“ The Construction Technology Report, generated using the survey results and comments like these, has become a powerful resource for industry professionals to evaluate where they stand amongst their peers and competitors in regards to technology use and implementation. Many publications have used statistics directly from the report, including:

- Construction Dive: Tried and tested: 24 construction apps at work on the job site
- Reflex Enterprise Solutions Group: Why do most large software providers use non-integration as their business strategy?

“We conduct this survey every year to help builders understand how their IT strategy compares to industry benchmarks and how they can improve. But we also conduct this survey to get builders excited about the trajectory of tech in the industry,” stated James Benham, JBKnowledge, Inc. CEO.
The 2017 Construction Technology Survey is presented in partnership with the Construction Financial Management Association, Mechanical Contractors Association of America and the Texas A&M University department of Construction Science. The survey covers nine main topics: IT Department Budgeting and Staffing; Cloud Procedures and Security Policies; BIM Processes and Staffing; Research and Development; Mobile Technology; Software Integrations; Software in Use; Emerging Technology; and Data Integration.
Construction professionals who take the survey will receive a complimentary copy of the 2017 Construction Tech Report (if you choose to, provide your name and email to receive your copy when finished with the survey).
