The Construction Record Podcast – Episode 196: Construction-themed board gaming with Derek Smith

Journal Of Commerce Image Journal Of Commerce

On this episode of The Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Derek Smith, the founder of Constructionlab Ltd. and the inventor of JOBSITE, the construction-focused board game.

Smith explained how the idea for the board game sprang from looking for a way to get the family together and off their tablets and computers during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and evolved into North America’s only board game with a construction theme.

Smith, who is the former executive director for the London & District Construction Association, said he playtested the game through contacts in the industry and others, and hopes the game helps both as a fun group activity and a way to educate those interested in construction to learn about the industry.

You can listen to The Construction Record and TCR Express on the Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce websites as well as on Apple PodcastsSpotify and Amazon Music’s podcast, and you can listen to the previous podcast featuring Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) vice-president of construction and utility sectors John Somers here.
