Philadelphia Construction Firms Preparing For Future
Construction firms in the Philadelphia area that have been suffering through stalled projects and forced to lay off employees are now preparing for more industrious times. Rather than laying off employees, construction firms are beginning to focus on retraining current talent and training new workers for upcoming projects.
As a result of the green revolution, energy efficiency is becoming vital to engineers, project managers, and superintendents, who are pursuing certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). There have also been developments in construction technology for contractors, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), which is expected to enable workers to download intricate 3-D elements of project plans directly to their mobile phones.
Industry officials predict thriving construction projects are about a year away. Two big sectors offering projects are higher education and health care. Government projects will also be popular as a result of stimulus funding.
