The decade from 2016-2026 will see a significant investment in infrastructure in the State of Utah. Projects like the airport expansion and prison relocation all grab headlines as high profile projects. However, the impacts are far greater than just those high profile projects. What does this mean for other infrastructure projects in the state such as pipelines, lift stations, treatment plants etc.? What is the approach from an Owners, Engineers and Contractors perspective on the growing labor shortage, cost escalation, longer lead times on materials etc. This presentation will seek to share current insight on the construction market including labor shortage, schedule concerns, cost escalation, bidding climate, strategies to address these issues and also how Owners, Engineers and Contractors can work more closely together to help solve these problems as a team. The goal is to have a panel made up of at least one Owner, Engineer and Contractor to create an environment where productive and open conversations can be had in a forum type setting. Come join us as we talk about these challenges facing local districts and communities in the Intermountain Region.
