For the Record

For over 125 years, Dodge has been delivering construction news to the market. It began in 1891 with Frederick Dodge, a pioneer in building statistics, riding his bicycle to construction sites to collect project data, and it has expanded over the years to an army of reporters in the United States, Canada, India and the Philippines, to data partnerships and to sophisticated technology that helps Dodge provide construction intelligence to customers. In the past year, the Dodge News Gathering team has issued over 536,000 unique Dodge Reports valued at 4.56 trillion US dollars.

Each month, the News Gathering Organization (NGO) delivers over 118,000 new or updated Dodge Reports and over 12,000 sets of plans and specifications to the Dodge Global Network. NGO’s goal is to report on a construction project as early in the development process as possible. 25% of the new or updated Dodge Reports created monthly are in the early planning stages with 55% of those projects representing private work. The project data NGO acquires plays a starring role in many of Dodge’s Analytics products including the Dodge Momentum Index, the Dodge Index of New Construction Starts,Dodge BuildShare and Dodge MarketShare, to name a few.

The ability for NGO to provide insights into construction projects is the result of long standing relationships with industry players who are directly involved in conceiving, designing and building the projects reported. The majority of the NGO reporters live in the market they cover and several hold leadership positions and memberships in their local chapters of the Construction Specifications Institute, Associated General Contractors Association and American Institute of Architects.

By combining the most experienced and knowledgeable resources with the finest technological advances, Dodge Data & Analytics' News Gathering Organization is able to provide the most trusted and comprehensive construction information available in North America.
