2017 UPDATE: After 4 years we have nuked ConstructionBrief. We weren’t able to give it the attention it deserved. We may revisit a new and improved news aggregator for the construction industry at some point in the future. For now, we can recommend some of our favorite construction news and blog websites.
Original post below:
May 30, 2013 – Winston-Salem, NC – TrueLook, a leading provider of construction webcam systems, announces today the launch of a new construction industry news website. The site, www.ConstructionBrief.com, collects the top construction news from across the web and sorts it into an easy-to-digest format. The value proposition of the site lies in organizing the web’s highly fragmented selection of construction news. Construction professionals now have an all-inclusive source for their industry’s most relevant and up-to-date news.
ConstructionBrief is a completely free (and ad-free) resource, which shares the top headlines from a hand-picked list of sources. A secondary section of the website lists the latest blog posts from construction firms. The third and final section displays a firehose of unfiltered construction news, delivered straight from Google Alerts.
Because of the large amount of news that ConstructionBrief collects, the website’s search function is very powerful. Finding specific news surrounding a project, location, or event is made easy. Since ConstructionBrief only collects construction news, search results are always relevant.
Every headline on ConstructionBrief takes the visitor directly to the source’s website. ConstructionBrief does not scrape or steal any content, but rather directly connects visitors with quality websites. Site visitors are able to quickly find relevant news, while content sources enjoy more web traffic. News headlines and sources are continually reviewed for revelance, and visitors are even able to suggest additional news sources.
TrueLook is the world’s premier interactive webcam system, specializing in time-lapse construction cameras, resort webcams, and live event webcams.
