Carol Stream, Ill. – With the release of its March issue, Constructech magazine today announced the winners in the first Constructech Top Products awards. The products named demonstrate some of the most innovative software and hardware available in the commercial construction industry today.

In its 2008 Readership Study, Constructech magazine disclosed that 61% of its readers plan to spend anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000, or more, in the coming year on new technology.
