“AGC places a lot of value in our collaboration with HP for developing effective technologies to help our community of contractors in the office, as well as on the job site.” said Jeff Wilson, Chief Marketing Officer at AGC.
The AGC BIMForum conference gathers AEC professionals to explore new trends and the most relevant technologies in their industries. This event offered the perfect venue to announce this new relationship. In this digital context, paper remains relevant and has a distinctive role as an effective, and often times required, communication medium.
“Using the HP Designjet MFP, new plans were available for the daily visit of the city building inspector,” said area superintendent, Chad Neukirch at Hensel Phelps, a long standing AGC member firm. “Clear work sequencing charts provided an open view of what each subcontractor was supposed to do, when and where. This eliminated confusion and time consuming discussions about who was meant to be working in an area.”
HP is committed to the construction market and continues to reinvent technical printing. The joint collaboration with AGC will go well beyond products and services, with both organizations working together to educate and enable AGC members to meet the challenges of the industry today.
