What tech products, applications, merchandising concepts and process improvements are gaining traction and which are stuck in the mud? Why? TecHome Builder Research seeks to discover and report on these vital aspects of the tech trajectory, so all builders can learn from each other and speed progress on tech.

In addition, we compile government and association reports and forecasting on residential and commercial construction activity in our Housing Stat Pack. This convenient compendium helps suppliers and builders follow the menu by emphasizing permitted value and construction-put-in-place and tracking the hot and cold spots in the market geographically.
