BuildingTech INSIDER is the latest buzz on how ideas and innovation are changing the built world.  Twice monthly online, our contributors will provide stories that peek into the future of A/E/C business practices, innovation, and culture.

The BuildingTech INSIDER Community

We are a community of people like you – people who love building technology and the way it is impacting and influencing our lives.  “BuildingTech INSIDERS” consist of architects, engineers, construction managers, tradespeople, builders, facilities managers, and technology fans. Get to know us by checking out our recent video, "Let's Build!"

Rudolph & Sletten Technology (Let's Build!) from My Story, Inc. on Vimeo.

We invite you to build with us in this exciting time of change.  We’ll provide you with content and experiences from BuildingTech that will grow your imagination on building possibilities, including: 

  • Bimonthly Posts from our BuildingTech INSIDERs

A breadth of content will cover three main categories, including:
