Construction information provider Reed Construction Data announced it is rebranding itself as CMD, a nod to the company’s original name, Construction Market Data. The new brand, which includes an updated logo and website, “emphasizes CMD’s commitment to its core business and values as it pursues innovative avenues for growth,” according to the organization.

“As we move forward with pioneering new products, content and strategies to lead a rapidly changing marketplace, we are proud to return to a name that still carries respect across our industry: CMD,” says CMD CEO Graeme McCracken. “CMD has always been known as a revolutionary, forward-thinking brand, so it was a natural choice for us as we continue to develop innovative solutions to provide the best insights for construction professionals. We look forward to growing this brand and using it to define the construction data industry globally.”

Founded in 1982, Construction Market Data began “combining new technology with in-person outreach and the expertise of experienced industry professionals to deliver accurate, contextualized information.” In 2000, Reed Elsevier purchased the original CMD Group, transitioning the company to Reed Construction Data, and earlier this year, private equity firm Warburg Pincus purchased a majority stake in the company.

Today, CMD tracks data on hundreds of thousands of North American projects per year.
