CHICAGO—Clark Builders Group (CBG) was honored with a 2011 Silver Vision Award on Wednesday, September 14 at Constructech magazine's annual awards ceremony.

This year, CBG was recognized for vastly improving the way the company shares project information.

"Winning a Constructech Vision Award is no easy feat. Each year, our panel of industry expert judges raises the bar on expectations regarding what is considered to be truly innovative in construction. Yet year after year Clark Builders Group continues to exceed such expectations, setting the benchmark for others in the industry itself," says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor of Constructech magazine. "We congratulate Clark Builders Group for winning an unprecedented 11 Vision Awards; quite the accomplishment for a great organization."

As one of the nation's largest multifamily builders, CBG is consistently responsible for coordinating communication between a number of different parties over the course of a project's development.

Microsoft SharePoint is CBG's highly effective answer to traditional File Transfer Protocol (FTP) sites used to manage this type of essential communication. Of the numerous advantages this technology offers, the individual user's ability to activate automatic notifications is the most important. These notifications are a streamlined way to let other users know when changes are made to project materials.

Increased security through individual login credentials and more efficiently organized files also afford CBG an integrated and collaborative approach to working with external parties such as designers and subcontractors.

"We are thrilled with this solution; not only does it facilitate project communication, but it has also given Clark an organized and professional look we haven't enjoyed until now," said Les Okrasa, senior network administrator at CBG. "Winning a Constructech award again this year really speaks to the team's success and our organization's dedication to improved technology systems. It's an honor for us to be recognized."

Constructech hosted the Vision Awards competition for the first time in 2000, and has since honored numerous innovative companies in the construction and technology industries. Each year winners must demonstrate not only how the newly adopted technology diminished a company challenge, but must also outline the specific benefits of the adopted technology.

This year marks CBG's 11th consecutive win, proving once again that CBG is a sophisticated competitor in its marketplace and is committed to leveraging the best of current technologies.
