Super high quality blog about all matters construction technology, with a bias towards tech (GenieBelt make construction software. It’s really good stuff!). The articles are often in-depth and well written and not the frothy chat that some bloggers try and get away with. Thumbs up GenieBelt for a top drawer example of how it should be done.

Interesting one this one. DCW’s is an Expo (this year it’s at Excel for the first time, because they keep getting bigger!) and as such the content comes from their exhibitors. Swerve the Press Releases and there is some gems of content and plenty of it.

We love the FMB for their really practical articles and insight. They know the industry well and their blog speaks to you like a human and not a ‘reader’. *Hat tip* to the team at FMB.

Orthograph make BIM software. There’s more than a few BIM apps out there already – but we’ve never seen anything as cool, fast and mobile friendly as this. OMG. The blog is all about how better the software gets. Which is handy, because the software is worth talking about! Also kudos for having the biggest YouTube channel on this list.
