Job description: Are you a bit tired of the standard old-fashioned way of doing things in the construction industry?

We are Laminar Projects!
If you have already heard about us, you are probably reading this because you are tired of the typical old-fashioned and chaotic ways of doing things in construction.

As a consultancy, we are focused on genuinely upgrading the way construction projects are delivered. We bring control and clarity to projects using a pragmatic mix of the latest technology, our own processes, and a big dose of common sense.
We then take the deep understanding of the projects we work on and all of our spare revenue to develop construction management software products that anyone can use to deliver their projects better. Our tech team is building a full suite of products one module at a time – kind of like office 365 but for construction management. ( and )
