About the Blog

It’s an exciting time in the construction industry. With new technologies, approaches and tools surfacing every day, it’s more critical now than ever to share what’s happening out there – on your projects, in your workplace and how those things affect the future of your business.

The mission of Building Insight is simple: to connect you to the stories, successes, hardships, solutions, and faces of the more than 10 million people that wear hardhats to work each day, not to mention the countless support staff members that work tirelessly behind the scenes.

Our hope is that you will use this page as a resource and it will serve as a window into the industry that we are so passionate about. We are builders, and our goal is to make this industry the best it can be – one building at a time.
