Ibuildroads.com is a road construction forum where users can post photos, pose questions, answers and solutions 24 hours a day and 365 days a year to everyday issues regarding equipment, materials, specifications and anything in between.

Categories include asphalt, concrete, milling and recycling, erosion control, subgrade mechanical stabilization, soil stabilization, engineering services and underground utilities. The site lets the industry, as a group, tackle the questions or issues that are ever-present in road construction.

Charles Grote III, of Reliable Asphalt Products said, “Ibuildroads is an excellent resource to send our customers to get a contractors input on current topics. It also gives our company insight into issues that are facing the industry today.”

With the introduction of online bidding, contractors and suppliers no longer gather every month to network and discuss the issues and opportunities within the industry. Ibuildroads.com brings these partners together to network nationwide and provides questions, answers and solutions from a “hands on” perspective in an unbiased and educational manner. Industry professionals from the plant operator to the company president are able to learn what others in the industry are doing. Users can ask questions or provide answers based on experience in an environment where they can feel free to express their thoughts, opinions and solutions. Employers can use Ibuildroads as a training tool for newly hired personnel.

“Today’s construction environment requires immediate solutions to everyday problems and Ibuildroads creates a network of industry professionals to draw from,” said Andy Pujats, Ibuildroads founder and president. “From the bidding to the completion of the job, ibuildroads can provide timely solutions from a variety of industry professionals.”

The road construction industry is going through a transformation from the first generation of “modern roadbuilders and pioneers” to the second generation and the way we receive information is transforming rapidly. Government regulations, mix design changes, new equipment requirements and techniques are pushing the industry faster than ever and we are looking for information and solutions now. With the recent addition of the Ibuildroads mobile app, users can post photos, questions or answers directly from their smartphone or tablet. You can be in touch with the industry while in the field or in the office. Time and information are critical in road construction and to have a tool to manage both is extremely useful, according to Pujats.

Harold Mullen, executive vice president of the Texas Asphalt Pavement Association said, “In today’s dynamic market everyone is searching for tools to keep them on the competitive edge. Expanding the use of communication tools like Ibuildroads.com offers opportunities across many segments of the construction industry by utilizing the latest technology to share solutions and practical experience.”

“My career in the industry has connected me with all levels of experience. I have always been impressed with the ingenuity of the workers and the collaboration between the contractor, manufacturer, supplier and the agencies that oversee them and Ibuildroads.com creates that partnership on a much larger scale,” said Andy Pujats.
