There is a growing demand for platforms that allow you to search for new construction projects, both public and private, in your area and globally. These platforms also provide information on the construction progress from planning to realization. This can be very useful to architects, developers & realtors to track projects in their area of interest, create strategic partnerships and learn more about what companies they’re interested in are up to. Let’s take a look at five such tools that have an automated lead search engine powered by reliable real-world data.
