From BIM (building information modeling), to tablets, to drones, to jobsite communication, technology is more frequently becoming a staple on construction projects across the country. While there are a number of different people involved in a technology initiative, women are more often playing a bigger role—and this is something the industry might begin to see more of in the future.

Consider Balfour Beatty, www.balfourbeattyus.com, Dallas, Texas. The commercial construction business delivers more than $3.4 billion each year, and also has a focus on creating one-of-a-kind buildings that enhance people’s lives. What’s more the company makes service delivery and relationship building a top priority.

Certainly a commercial company of this size is using technology for BIM, mobility, and to heighten communication and project efficiency. The company says it has taken a step forward bringing technology solutions to help streamline and provide efficiencies in the construction industry—especially direct to the field. Women are playing a big role in this effort too.
