Strong Foundations Newsletter | Summer 2018

The focus of this issue is on the construction industry, from a macro and micro perspective.

Our first article is about pricing in the construction industry, which includes strategies about when to lock in pricing, how to plan for escalation, what trades are at a premium, and more. The article provides insightful information for those who manage these projects.

We also spoke with Associated General Contractors of Georgia (AGC-GA) CEO Mike Dunham. Having worked with AGC for almost 40 years, rest assured Mike has a lot to say about the construction industry and where it's headed.

If you'll indulge me for a moment, I would like to congratulate the RKR team for receiving the 2018 Excellence in Safety Award from AGC-Georgia for the fourth year in a row. Even more outstanding is being awarded the 2018 National AGC Safety Award. This national award from AGC is significant, because it recognizes RKR for having zero incidents for at least the past three years.
