The Business Value of BIM for Mechanical and HVAC Construction SmartMarket Report

The use of BIM and related technologies and processes that leverage data from models is delivering meaningful impact to mechanical and HVAC contractors on a wide variety of measures, including cost and schedule improvements, enhanced productivity, better collaboration between stakeholders and better worker safety. This research report quantifies other benefits to users and the challenges related to leveraging BIM to increase industry understanding of which factors will most effectively drive growth and expand future use.

Prefabrication and Modular Construction 2020 SmartMarket Report

Improved productivity and quality are among the benefits driving interest in, and use of, prefabrication and modular construction today. This research report quantifies other benefits to users and the challenges related to each to increase industry understanding of which factors will most effectively drive growth and expand future use.

2018 MCAA-Focused Construction Technology Report

MCAA sponsored the 2018 Construction Technology Report, produced by MCAA’s Technology partner, JBKnowledge. As part of our sponsorship, MCAA published an MCAA-Focused report that segments out responses given by MCAA members and compares them to the rest of the construction industry. With this new report, MCAA members can not only see how their companies compare to other MCAA members, but how our membership compares to the industry at large.

MCAA Safety Apps Report

This fifth report in the Construction Technology Research Series was written by JBKLabs exclusively for MCAA. The JBKnowledge team evaluated the numerous applications on the market for safety professionals and foremen. While most are geared towards documentation, there is a growing trend to use the data that is documented and apply analytics to identify root causes and trends. Predictive analytics, which analyze historical data, current projects, and weather can be used to predict higher chances of incidents happening. Both can be extremely powerful tools to help prevent accidents from occurring.

This webinar offers additional insights into the MCAA Safety Apps research report written by JBKLabs exclusively for MCAA.

Technology Report on Field Service Software

In the fourth installment of the MCAA Construction Technology Research Series, our partners at JB Knowledge surveyed MSCA members on their technology practices and software needs for service operations before comparing 16 different software solutions. Free to members.

Construction Technology Report – 3D Scanning Webinar with James Benham

In 2016, the MCAA partnered with JBK Labs to release a multi-part research series on construction technology. Each part can be used by contractors to help evaluate and compare specific products and software in order to help determine how beneficial they could be to their operations. In the first release of the series, 3D Scanning Technology was explored.

James Benham, founder of JB Knowledge and their research wing, JBK Labs, presents findings from the study in this webinar. He explores and compares the differences in products, software and processes that contractors will see when they begin to utilize 3D scanning technology. He also takes a look at some solutions that are not quite ready yet to show what the future of 3D scanning technology might look like
