FEBRUARY 17, 2015 –NEW YORK, NY– NRI,a nationwide leader in digital, print and technology equipment solutions for the AEC industry, today announced the launch of Jobsite Tech Group, LLC.
Jobsite Tech Group was formed in response to the NRI clients’ needs for technology expertise and equipment on their construction sites. Jobsite Tech Group is dedicated to the sole purpose of assisting organizations in the AEC industry with the adoption of new technology, processes and solutions, all designed to improve efficiency, collaboration and coordination, and to meet the increasing demands of tech savvy owners and design teams.
“We started Jobsite Tech Group (JTG) so we could effectively address the increasing demands of the industry”, said NRI’s President Doug Magid. “NRI is one of the most experienced and trusted data management and technology providers in the AEC industry. The technology demands at the jobsite are so extensive and are evolving so rapidly that serving these needs requires a comprehensive yet focused solution. Many of our partners are joining us in this effort.”
JTG has other investors besides NRI, including VIMtrek, a company dedicated to building project collaboration through visual information modeling using virtual reality. VIMtrek’s president is the well-known AEC entrepreneur Arol Wolford. Wolford was the Founder and CEO of Construction MarketData (CMD) and was an investor and board member with Revit when it was acquired by Autodesk. VIMtrek and Wolford add true innovative leadership to JTGas well as incredible reach into additional partners worldwide.
“Since CMDI have been focused on the adoption of technology that enhances design and build processes,” said Wolford. “Jobsite Tech Group is perfectly positioned to leverage our technology and incorporate the many industry leading solutions required to fulfill the needs of the project, while delivering enhanced collaboration and coordination among all project team members.”
Leading organizations have been very supportive of NRI’s involvement in jobsite technology, including powering the Williams Scotsman techsuite™ program. Newforma, SMART, Autodesk, Hewlett Packard, EarthCam, Sharp, Samsung, Direct Dimensions and KNAACK’s DataVault are just a few of the companies that will be supporting and working with JTG because they all have products that are perfectly suited for the demands at the jobsite.
Jobsite Tech Group will be led by Ron Perkins. Perkins has spent decades in the AEC industry working with organizations like CMD, Architects’ First Source, Autodesk Buzzsaw, Hewlett Packard, Adenium Systems and NRI. As Director of Business Development at NRI he developed the techsuite™ program with Williams Scotsman and changed the way both organizations address the technology demands at the jobsite.
