"The best thing I like about Construction Data is the personal attention I receive from the Editorial Department. If ever I don't see the information I am looking for, I can contact the Editorial Department and they will go out of their way to call architects, GCs or whoever has the information I need. "

"I write this to express my gratitude to your company. L/B Water Service has used your service for many years and we were happy with it. However, as economic times sometimes dictate, we decided to try a less expensive service and we found out the hard way, "you only get what you pay for". It was an experiment that went wrong. We have signed a 2-year contract for your service and look forward to increasing our business through the use of Construction Data. At L/B Water, we do not have customers & vendors, we have partners and we look forward to our partnership with the Construction Data organization."

"Construction Data has been delivered to my office twice a week for the past 15 years. As a general contractor, I primarily do work for the state of New York.

Construction Data saves my company time and money!! "
