Why ISG joined iMasons Founding Partner Program
We believe that the future of the construction industry is digital, yet it has been slow to adopt the advancements that have become business-as-usual in other industries. ISG is ready to change this. However, we will not be able to do this on our own and we are seeking partnerships to push a smarter, more connected industry. We are keen to work with a range of organizations to help us – and them – achieve better outcomes in terms of the built environment, and across all business sectors.
Our passions are technology, building capability, encouraging talent and improving diversity in business and we see many synergies with iMasons and its mission.
