Procon is very excited to announce the launch of our new podcast “The Build Up.” The show will be hosted by Procon Consulting President and Co-Founder Kyu Jung. It will cover a range of topics relevant to the construction industry from new technology innovations, to advice for young professionals just starting out in their careers, and how we can play a role in building a more sustainable future.
“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Kyu Jung. “I’ve always felt that there was an opportunity to leverage the communication platforms available to us in order to bring the conversations I was already having with colleagues and industry partners to a broader audience. This is the kind of dialogue and information sharing I wish I had access to when I was starting my career and I hope the content we produce is a valuable resource to those entering the field.”
The first episode features Procon’s Director of Technology Steve DeVito. Kyu and Steve discuss 360 Progress Monitoring, a process where 360-degree images are taken throughout a construction site at each phase of the construction process to allow for immersive documentation and virtual monitoring of construction progress. It’s a technology that’s been implemented by Procon for years but proved especially useful during the pandemic when access to job sites was more restricted. The technology proved so beneficial that the General Services Administration has now rolled it out to its entire portfolio of projects after the initial pilot project.
Future episodes of The Build Up will be released monthly. The video version can be viewed on Procon’s YouTube channel and future episodes will also be available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
Procon, a leading construction management, commissioning, and technology solutions firm, was ranked No. 95 on ENR’s Top 100 Construction Management/PM-for-Fee Firms.
“Our spot on the ENR list is a result of our team’s entrepreneurial spirit, commitment to growing with our clients, and consistency in delivering solutions to keep owners and partners happy,” said President and Co-Founder, Kyu Jung, of Procon. “We are honored to be recognized along with so many other talented firms.”

Procon was honored to accept the Building Construction Project of the Year award from the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) National Capital Chapter for our work with the General Services Administration on the Virtual Inspections Pilot project.
The pandemic led to an unprecedented new set of challenges around accessing and monitoring job sites. We are so proud that through our long-standing collaboration with GSA and our ability to be on the cutting edge of technology in our industry we were able to successfully innovate and meet those challenges with virtual inspections in a way that we will continue to improve upon in the future, making us more capable and efficient in delivering solutions.
We’d like to thank CMAA’s Barbara Reynolds and John Morse for presenting us the award, as well as Danielle Breaux and Stephen DeVito for their leadership and expertise on the project, and Ryan Meek for his support.
At a special luncheon this week, Procon employees Emily Winship, Linda Wild, and Tony Neiderer were presented with a Challenge Coin from The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for their ongoing commitment and dedication to successful project delivery.
We would also like to recognize our proud partner, Brown Construction Services for their strong leadership and team commitment.
