Reed Construction Data Inc (RCD) and the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada (ACEC) have announced the signing of an alliance agreement that will see the two organizations combining resources and cooperating in various initiatives intended to promote and support common goals and interests.
The agreement includes a number of provisions designed to increase the exposure and reach of RCD’s products among Canadian Consulting Engineers. In turn, RCD will provide promotional and marketing opportunities to the ACEC to assist in advancing the organization and the profession throughout Canada.
Among other advantages, ACEC members will enjoy unlimited access to selected RCD products, including Buildcore and Project Source, as well as substantial discounts on RCD’s suite of industry intelligence products, including Daily Commercial News, Journal of Commerce, CanaData Forecaster, and additional industry leading analysis and forecasting tools. ACEC members will also benefit from reduced admissions to RCD’s annual CanaData Construction Industry Forecasts Conference. In turn, the ACEC will promote and endorse RCD as a business partner, provide promotional and endorsement opportunities on communications and at the annual ACEC Conference, and employ RCD as a sole provider of construction industry intelligence.
â€œThe ACEC is a strong and dynamic organization with an outstanding reputation for professional integrity and ethical practices,â€ states Mark Casaletto, Reed Construction Data’s Managing Director. â€œWe believe this alliance is a natural fit.
