This week on the Construction Record podcast, Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce national managing editor Vince Versace, digital media editor Warren Frey and staff writer Russell Hixson take a look at the issues at the top of mind in the industry, starting with Vince speaking to the disturbing noose incidents on several work sites throughout Toronto and an appeal to give any information anyone may know to the proper authorities.
Russell took time to chat with ConstructConnect senior economist Alex Carrick about the various factors affecting construction investment, including but not restricted to the seismic changes COVID-19 has wrought not only on the industry but the worldwide economy. Infrastructure spending is up but what kind of infrastructure remains valid or is newly valuable is a question still being answered.
Our feature interview is with Mallorie Brodie, the CEO and co-founder of Bridgit Software, one of the first construction management tools to go mobile-first and still an innovative presence an in industry increasingly moving toward digitization and connectivity. Mallorie also covered how the firm’s forecasting software is being used in companies big and small to address the new factors COVID-19 brings into play when planning for the future.
