Staying on top of what’s happening in sustainable building



Ever wonder how much time and resources are lost to unneeded service calls and site visits? Calgary tech company ICwhatUC did. And they’ve found a solution to stop wasting time and energy, while boosting customer satisfaction. Their web-based platform is taking building experts to site to solve issues, without ever leaving their home or office. We sat down with Co-Founder Luke Krueger to discuss the benefits of this technology to the building industry, and how they’re poised to capitalize on the 5G transition.
