Just over a week since my post mentioning the second running of the Construction Computing Awards 2007, I have just received an email from the organisers saying that online voting for the shortlisted candidates is now under way.

Asite stops the rot

After three years of gradually dwindling turnover, UK-based construction collaboration technology vendor Asite looks like it has started to reverse the decline, mainly due to healthy revenues earned in the Middle East. Today’s Stock Exchange announcement of its interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2007 show gross revenues up 19% to £0.854m (from …

The latest Aconex news release talks about an Australian power station project. Nothing particularly remarkable about it, but I did notice the contractor is Bilfinger Berger – once a shareholder in rival construction collaboration vendor BuildOnline (today CTSpace) following the BO merger with myBau in 2002.
