On September 21, our construction team welcomed clients in-person and virtually via livestream for a presentation on the current and forecasted state of the construction industry in Ohio. With more than 50 professionals from the local construction scene in attendance, our attorneys covered all the crucial topics at play in today’s building ecosystem.

  • Don Gregory discussed the current construction climate and suggested tools to manage a contractor’s most challenging project risks, including price escalation, labor shortages and impacts to the supply chain.
  • Eric Travers addressed budgeting, contract tools, how at least one major industry trade group has developed a template document to address materials costs, and related impacts in the current market.
  • Tom Pannett reviewed what we know about the upcoming federal infrastructure package, discussed ODOT pricing adjustments, and offered some insider perspective from his 31+ years in government.
  • Mike Madigan shared how post-pandemic conditions could impact contractual terms, GMP negotiation, and schedule requirements.
