New Construction Survey Focuses on CONTECH in Construction Supply Chain

The Ontario General Contractors Association (OGCA), in collaboration with SMARTBUILD Construction Solutions, has launched a new survey focused on better understanding the use of construction technology (CONTECH) amongst general contractors, subcontractors, owners, and consultants.

Construction is complex and multifaceted, yet it is often generalized as lagging behind other industries when adopting new technologies and processes.

Digital technologies are increasingly being integrated to support the execution of all aspects of the construction process, from procurement, design, takeoff, construction and project handover. However, the construction industry as a whole is seen as substantially behind other sectors with respect to technology.

The survey is the first systematic attempt to identify and catalogue the different digital technologies and their application across the supply chain. The survey aims to get feedback from: owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and consultants to make construction easier, more productive and collaborative.
