Since Construction Junkie’s humble beginnings in early 2015, we’ve had the absolute pleasure of connecting with thousands of other junkies throughout the world, who all share the same passion for the construction industry as we do. We hope that you’ve found our content throughout the past couple of years as equally entertaining as it is informative, because that’s one of our goals. We want to get the construction industry excited to be in the industry and learn about the latest advancements in technology, tools, and safety, as well as covering the most important news topics.
Having said that, we now need the help of our loyal and amazing readers. Each year, Construction Marketing Ideas hosts a “Best Construction Blog” competition and the 2017 ballot box has officially opened for votes.
