Construction Mrkt Trends: Where Are We on the Roller Coaster

Lunch will be served with the presentation.
Speaker: John Cross, AISC vice president special projects

Admit it! Your favorite amusement park ride is the roller coaster. If it wasn’t, you wouldn’t be a design and construction industry professional.

Some peaks are higher than others, some drops are gentler and sometimes it seems as if the car you are riding in hangs at the top for a while after a long climb. But no matter where you are during the ride, there will always be another climb, another peak and another drop. So are we still headed up or reaching a new peak and about to drop precipitously?
