Innovations in Construction Think Tanks

Twice a year ACE hosts a day-long Innovations in Construction Think Tank session to address local/regional issues in the construction industry. While think tank outcomes and their impact on our industry cannot be predicted, the overarching goal for each session is to develop positions statements, problem definitions, and/or actionable plans that can be captured in white papers to be made available to industry organizations, publications, and elected officials as appropriate.

Think tank participants are thought leaders and C-Suite executives in the industry who are specifically invited to attend based on the topic selected for each session and the participants' expertise. Participation is strictly limited to the first ten (10) invitees to respond with an affirmative reservation. All participants receive breakfast and lunch in addition to any materials needed.


Upcoming Innovations in Construction Think Tanks

Our Fall 2017 Think Tank will focus on an overarching topic of “What does the Future of Construction in Arizona and the Southwest look like”, with subtopics ranging from workforce issues to financing to means & methods to delivery methods. The goal of this session is to identify the issues and opportunities for innovations in the delivery of construction projects for the near and longer term future of the Arizona and Southwest Region construction industry.
