New Report Looks at How MCAA Members Use Technology

April 6, 2018

The MCAA-sponsored 2017 Construction Technology Report by JBKnowledge took an in-depth look at how the construction industry utilizes technology, software and IT. This week, MCAA released an “MCAA Focused” Report that analyzed the responses of MCAA and MSCA members. It looked at how MCAA members use and estimate BIM costs, track productivity, and emerging tech tools.

Part of the report focused on how MCAA members compare to the rest of the construction industry.  It showed that MCAA members have a greater adoption of BIM and have higher use rates for BIM with especially with coordination and fabrication.

The MCAA focused report also explored how MCAA members are tracking BIM hours and estimating their costs.  It found that far too many contractors do not track their BIM hours per project and as a result cannot use those hours to estimate the amount of time needed to perform BIM on a project.

The report also looked at emerging trends that contractors are currently testing. While the industry at large favors drones by a wide margin, MCAA members are far ahead of the industry on fabrication and modularization.

Its that time of year again. MCAA is once again sponsoring the @JBKnowledge Construction Tech Survey. Just taking the survey provides some food for thought on budgeting, innovations and resources. Take the survey at: https://t.co/uRUWmbq8uy

One of the sessions we have scheduled for the 2020 Tech Conference talks about app dev, but this article focuses more on @redteamsoftware new product which involves and empowers more subcontractors. Always great to see wider integration.

Been having some interesting discussions lately about how often a BIM model is used once construction is finished. What % of your models have a post life? Comment if you are able to turn it over to service division or as a service contractor, ask for it to maintain it.
