Many of the leading firms on the newly released ENR Top 400 Contractors list are using construction technology to make workers safer and more productive.
For instance, several of the largest constructors in the country are employing artificial intelligence tool Smartvid.io, which uses jobsite photos, videos and other sources to identify and label risks such as standing water or missing personal protective equipment like hard hats, safety glasses, gloves and more.
