Event Recap: Construction Forecast 2020
We had a great time and turnout for the Chapter’s first program of the decade, a discussion on the 2020 Construction Forecast.
Our event moderator, April Kort of 3form, created a word cloud based upon her notes in preparation for the event where the prevailing words were people, involved, together and communication. Our panelists, Chris Hume of Cullen Construction Management, Matt Prince of Riley Construction and Erik Magasamen of Leopardo, discussed 2020 as a year of “taking a breath” from the last year’s busy construction boom. The “breath” was described as a positive event, allowing the industry to re-align with their goals and intentions to create purposeful work. Technology was discussed at length with the overarching theme of technology is a great tool, but the human component is still critical to successful projects.
Special thanks to our members for attending, our moderator, panelists and to our event sponsors: Ice Miller, Leopardo and Pella.
