We always appreciate content about the construction industry that’s interesting, helpful, and teaches us a thing or two that we didn’t know beforehand.
Here is our list of 11 essential construction industry blogs for 2023 (and beyond!) that should be interesting to anyone in the industry, whether you’re out in the field or killing it in the office.
11 essential blogs for the construction industry
Before we get started, a disclaimer of sorts: Not all of the following are blogs, technically speaking. Some are better defined as industry news sites or even digital magazines. However, we love content variety, and all of these have great content specially created for the construction industry. We wholeheartedly endorse them all.
11. Fieldwire Blog
Easy-to-navigate sections and great customer spotlight content make the Fieldwire blog a long-term inspiration for Levelset content.
10. Federal Construction Contracting Blog by Cohen Seglias
This blog is especially for contractors on federal projects (but you probably figured that out from the name). We definitely follow a lot of federal construction news at Levelset, and this blog is a great resource for all the in-depth information and coverage contractors need when working or preparing to work on any government projects.
9. Digital Builder by Autodesk
This blog is a great resource for learning about the benefits of construction software and how important technology is to the industry. They also have a knack for in-depth interviews and even podcast episodes.
8. LetsBuild (formerly GenieBelt)
We have a bit of a blog crush on these guys. LetsBuild is a European construction tech company based in Denmark. Not only do we like their style, but it’s great to get some industry perspective from outside the US.
7. The eSUB Blog
Subcontractors, take note: eSUB has the content for you. We get along great with the eSUB folks, both personally and professionally. Their blog is an industry must-read, especially for subcontractors. eSUB even contributes content to the Levelset blog on occasion.
6. Construction Business Owner
The construction business owner site is jam-packed with useful information, including helpful articles around a variety of topics, webinars, and other resources (including trade show and event coverage). We’ve been fans of theirs for years — check them out for yourself.
5. For Construction Pros
This is another massive site with a ton of information, including deeper dives into equipment and a number of other subjects. Levelset often contributes to another of their special sections, Profit Matters.
4. Construction Dive
Construction Dive is big, thorough, informative, interesting to read, and easy to navigate. They’re a huge inspiration to the reporters and editor of Levelset News.
3. Construction Executive
Construction Executive holds a very special place in our hearts here at Levelset — we have a very close working relationship with them. Perhaps not surprisingly, we also contribute content here often. As the name suggests, this magazine and digital blog is a trusted resource for top construction business leaders.
2. The Jobsite by Procore
We love the blog feed from our friends at Procore, and not just because Levelset joined the Procore family in 2021! Smart design, a variety of topics, and great organization make The Jobsite an incredible pick to learn about everything from top large construction projects to watch, to which construction skills to include on your resume.
…and the number 1 construction industry blog is…
1. Levelset’s Construction Payment Blog
As CEO Scott Wolfe Jr. (himself an extremely prolific blogger) likes to say, “great content is a part of Levelset’s DNA.”
Truer words have never been spoken! Educating the industry has been a part of Levelset’s mission since its founding, and our commitment to that goal has never wavered.
From the blog and news coverage, to an encyclopedic construction payment resources, downloads, legal help community, and more, we at Levelset work hard every single day to provide information that helps people in the construction industry do their jobs — and get paid what they earned.
