Asite has become a member of Construction Industry Institute (CII) at the University of Texas. The organisation brings together construction leaders to help shape and move the industry forward
As Asite continues to grow in the North American market, this partnership is a demonstration of Asite’s commitment to the region and its aim to become a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) provider for infrastructure developments and capital projects across the continent.
The CII is a consortium made up of over 140 leading owner, engineering-contractor and supplier firms from both the public and private sectors, brought together to enhance the business effectiveness and sustainability of the capital facility life cycle through CII research, related initiatives, and industry alliances.
Asite’s growth in North America has already seen the US team grow exponentially, with more growth expected in 2021.
The company’s expansion in the US is evidenced by new offices in both Houston and Florida, joining the New York office.
The CII creates competitive global market advantages for its members through its research-based and member-driven creation of knowledge and CII best practices.
Working with the CII will help provide Asite with a decisive industry edge and provide the company with access to leading academics, identifying the most significant opportunities for industry improvement.
