Closing Construction's Skilled Labor Gap with Technology By Chad Hollingsworth, CEO, Triax Technologies Many millennials, who have pursued four-year college degrees and are concerned about company culture and professional development, tend to overlook construction and the trades entirely. Also, since technology is an integral part of their daily lives and construction is one of the least digitized industries, it doesn't help the industry's image. A 2017 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) study found that only 3 percent of young adults aged 18 to 25 who knew which career they wanted to pursue would choose construction. With job growth in construction expected to double the national average over the next decade, and nearly three-quarters of general contractors reporting having difficulty finding skilled workers this year, something clearly needs to change. ...Read More »

Best Practices for Preventing "Scope Creep" By Steven Burns For professionals in the AEC fields, "scope creep" is a phrase that strikes fear into their hearts. Defined as growth in project requirements that happens after a project has started, scope creep is a common issue that drags down productivity. For architects and engineers, this "creep" is very common, as the client envisions initial designs as a blank canvas that can be adjusted with more and more features. Some of these requested changes are understandable, as developing a project is a dynamic process filled with unknowns. A project will often change due to the owner's reconsidering certain features, or perhaps when the conditions on the site necessitate an alteration. ...Read More »
