Modernizing a Local Construction Company: Tech Stack Transformation

In the ever-evolving world of construction, staying ahead of the technological curve is essential. For local construction companies, this often means modernizing outdated systems to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and secure more lucrative contracts. At 7th Layer Tech, we specialize in helping businesses navigate this digital transformation. Recently, we had the privilege of working with a local construction company to modernize their tech stack, bringing them into the digital age with significant cost savings and improved operational flexibility.

CTO-Based Modernization Strategy

The journey began with the development of a comprehensive modernization strategy, guided by a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) approach. This strategy was tailored to the unique needs of the construction company, ensuring that every technological upgrade aligned with their business goals. By analyzing their existing infrastructure and identifying areas for improvement, we were able to create a roadmap for success.

From Outdated On-Prem Servers to the Cloud

The construction company was operating on outdated on-premise server technology, which not only limited their capabilities but also posed a significant financial burden. Updating this infrastructure would have cost over $20,000. Instead, we proposed a shift to a cloud-first methodology. This move to the cloud not only eliminated the need for costly hardware upgrades but also provided the company with enhanced mobility and flexibility. This transformation was crucial in positioning them to win more city contracts, as they could now easily access and manage projects from anywhere.

Optimizing Microsoft 365 Licensing

An additional area for enhancement involved their Microsoft 365 licensing. The company had not been using the most economical option, resulting in avoidable expenses. By reevaluating their requirements and transitioning to a more appropriate license, we achieved an annual savings of over $500. This adjustment not only cut costs but also expanded their access to services, thereby improving their operational effectiveness.

Embracing Mobility and Flexibility

The shift to a cloud-first methodology brought numerous benefits. The construction company now enjoys the mobility to manage projects on the go, an essential feature for securing city contracts. The flexibility of cloud solutions means they can scale their operations easily and efficiently, adapting to the demands of various projects without being constrained by outdated technology.


Modernizing a local construction company’s tech stack is no small feat, but with the right strategy and expertise, it can lead to significant improvements in efficiency, cost savings, and competitive advantage. At 7th Layer Tech, we are proud to have helped this construction company embrace modern technology, ensuring they are well-equipped to meet the demands of today's market. If your business is facing similar challenges, we are here to help guide you through the transformation process, ensuring you reap the benefits of a modernized tech stack.
