USA Civil and USA Building management meetings focus on collaboration, innovation, safety and opportunities

USA Civil and USA Building management meetings focus on collaboration, innovation, safety and opportunities

The overall sentiment at last week’s USA Civil and USA Building management meetings was that of optimism: We are taking the right steps to position ourselves for the future. But competition is fierce and we must never be complacent, especially if we are to further enhance our position as innovative leaders in our various markets, as well as with safety, ethics and diversity. Both meetings stressed the importance of the upcoming Diversity and Inclusion Week from April 8-12, and that we need to improve our already-strong safety performance. Key takeaways from the Civil meeting include the need to increase sharing and collaboration across offices, the importance of employee mobility and design-build solutions, and the many opportunities offered by $40 billion in upcoming West Coast transit projects and numerous upcoming energy and industrial projects, the latter driven by lower-cost U.S. energy. From the Building meeting, Building is focusing on differentiating itself by providing unique experiences to its clients, colleagues and communities. Winners of Building’s annual awards include Portland, Ore., for Office of the Year and the Intel D1C 1270 Basebuild high-tech manufacturing project for the Project of the Year Award (over $100 million).
