Construction continues to change at a rapid pace…"digital creep" still has its roadblock connecting job sites to the respective managers and head offices.

Construction will have some pain as it relates to an economic downturn. Contractors will have to shift their focus from new construction to renovation service and maintenance to stay busy.
