Houston, United States (December 2020) – Asite has joined the Construction Industry Institute (CII) based out of the University of Texas in Austin.

The CII is a consortium made up of over 140 leading owner, engineering-contractor and supplier firms from both the public and private sectors, brought together to enhance the business effectiveness and sustainability of the capital facility life cycle through CII research, related initiatives, and industry alliances.

As Asite continues to grow in the North American market, this partnership is a demonstration of Asite’s commitment to the region and its aim to become a leading SaaS provider for infrastructure developments and capital projects across the continent.


Chris Peters, Asite Senior Vice President of North America said:


“For over 30 years, CII has been working to apply research and best practices to create positive change in the industry. Here at Asite, we are thrilled to be joining the CII and become part of this effort to identify opportunities and invoke true change.

As we continue to grow in North America, we appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with industry-leading organizations and become a key player in this region. We know we have value to add, and we are excited to bring our level of expertise and knowledge to the conversation.”


Gene Brieck, Asite Vice President of Sales for North America said:


“We are delighted to join the Construction Industry Institute (CII) based here in Texas. Our membership with CII is a perfect fit for Asite as we share the value of working collaboratively to develop the innovative solutions that will, ultimately, drive our industry forward. 

 Working as an R&D research lab for capital projects, CII is consistently at the forefront of new industry developments, and we are excited to now be part of this team and that journey.”


Asite’s growth in North America has already seen the US team grow exponentially, with more growth expected in 2021. The company's expansion in the US is evidenced by a new office in Houston, joining the New York office.

Asite’s CII membership will help to further these aims. The CII creates competitive global market advantages for its members through its research-based and member-driven creation of knowledge and CII best practices.

Working with the CII will help provide Asite with a decisive industry edge and provide the company with access to leading academics, identifying the most significant opportunities for industry improvement.
