Your construction goals within range.
The construction industry is in the midst of major transformation. Owners, contractors and other players are diversifying and expanding into new markets and geographies. This entry into new territory brings with it a slew of unknowns and inevitable growing pains. If you’re in Colorado and you’ve just won a contract from a company based in Texas for a project in Canada, what laws and regulations apply? Do you have a business partner who can walk you through each and every step of a major project – from conception to completion, navigating the intricate system of bidding and procurement, government costs, budgets and logistics? Do you have someone on your team who can analyze the project from three different perspectives – that of the engineer, the lawyer and the business person?
