Ed Seglias and Mike McKenna weighed in on what 2021 will look like for the construction industry in a recent Construction SuperConference post. They predict that:
“Owners will continue to seek more efficient and timely ways to accelerate the design, construction and completion of projects. This process will theoretically save money but could create more financial risk for designers and contractors. But the designers and contractors that are best equipped to manage this type of construction environment can benefit in multiple ways.”
ATLANTA – It’s been a full year since Construction Super Conference met at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, Calif. Little did we know what would transpire between then and now. Just this week, the first Americans (outside of clinical trials) received vaccinations for COVID-19.
In addition to the global pandemic, political strife of all kinds dominated headlines. Elections, debate about police reform, and a mass use of meeting technology transformed the day-to-day workings of construction law attorneys, and everyone else for that matter.
