CEDAR CITY – Construction Monitor, a building permit data service with its corporate office in Cedar City, started an expansion the beginning of this year and plans to cover the nation by the end of the year.

President and Partner David Mineer Sr. said before the expansion they covered the western United States, from Colorado west, and Texas. The expansion is a big step, but the timing is good and everything is in place to make it happen, he said.

“We’re getting a lot of good feedback from clients,” he said.

They have hired people in Southern Utah and across the nation to do data entry from home, which has been great for a lot of stay-at-home moms in Iron County who have been able to get work with the company, he added.

Construction Monitor is a “lead source” for people in the construction industry, Mineer said. They let their clients know who has started a building project, and who the building permit was issued to. All this information is public record, but they clean it up and compile it, making it easier for their customers to use.

The information they provide helps “construction professionals market to new homebuilders,” a press release reported.

The company started in 1989 in the Salt Lake City area, Mineer added.

The corporate headquarters is located at 141 N. Main St. No. 250 in Cedar City.

According to the press release, with its expansion it has attracted the attention of Silicon Valley, and has been in discussions with a company about the possibility of a buyout. For now, the only thing official is that the company is progressing with its aggressive plan for expansion, and its goal to cover the nation, the release added.

“These are exciting times here at Construction Monitor … in the last two months we’ve collected over 100,000 permits, and we’ve entered several large markets like New York City and Chicago,” Mineer said in the press release.

He added that they must be doing something right, with the attention they have been receiving.
