I recently had a conversation with the Director of Construction for a school district here in Texas. He and his team are facing a mountain of work over the next few years thanks to the recent passage of a school bond.He had been put in contact with us by a colleague from another school district that uses Owner Insite for construction project management software. Despite the high praise and recommendation from our client, I could sense a fair bit of skepticism on his part as we spoke.
