Journal Of Commerce Image Journal Of Commerce

On this episode of The Construction Record Podcast™ from the World of Concrete in Las Vegas, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with both speaker and entrepreneur Rhonda Sargent Chambers and architect and designer Kaneshka Salehi.

Chambers, who grew up in a construction family that ran a concrete staining business, spoke at a session titled Women Construction Business Owners: “Creating Your Legacy” where she addressed many of the challenges of running a business from a female perspective including imposter syndrome, outdated cultural attitudes and the similarities between her production business and those working in construction, including intense physical labour and high-stress environments.

Kaneshka, the principal of Kaneshka Design Group, explained how 3-D printing has allowed him to express his visions in ways that simply weren’t possible with standard technologies. He also addressed the current limitations of 3D printing and the real-world challenges of building organic architecture in California, where earthquakes and other hazards are all part of the design process.
