Description

Business Competencies

The U.S. economy is recovering robustly from the pandemic, but progress in construction has been far more uneven. Similarly, a variety of legislative and regulatory initiatives would have very mixed impacts on contractors and their workers. Ken will explore the current state and outlook for construction project types, materials costs and availability, and labor.

In this keynote you will find out what project types are likely to provide the greatest opportunities in the near future, hear how materials costs and supply-chain bottlenecks are evolving and what to expect in coming months, and learn where labor demand is strongest and how contractors are coping with worker shortages.
