The academy offers training and coaching on specific systems and processes, guided by industry expert Shawn van Dyke, who brings over 20 years of experience in construction management and helping businesses become more successful.

About the Business


“Construction business owners are slow to adopt new technology, and I totally understand why... There’s a long list of products that are the latest and greatest and then they have warranty issues or whatever. But you can’t apply that mentality to automation and what’s going on right now… If you wait another year and think like, okay, we’ll jump on the ChatGPT thing, you’re gonna be left behind.”
