TECH Alliance BannerSite

ABC’s inaugural Tech Alliance was built to help drive ABC members’ ability to develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work through improved utilization of technology. The alliance is a hand-selected group of 13 construction technology companies that add inherent value for ABC members and position ABC as a leading association for construction technology needs. Led by Matthew Abeles, ABC vice president of construction technology and innovation, the alliance companies will be integrated in our association’s long-term planning. They will collaborate on technology resources for the association, including a beta testing/free technology program and educational webinars focused on our mid-size contractors, and provide chapters with access to companies supporting our contractor members.
